Ms. Boyd was a graduate of Warren High School Class of 1941. She was initially employed by New Process Company (Blair Corporation), later transitioning to Warren Bank and Trust Company. She retired from Integra Bank as an Assistant Trust Officer after twenty-seven years of dedicated service.
Ms. Boyd was involved in numerous acts of service to the community.
A faithful member of Grace United Methodist Church since 1933, she spent several years teaching at the weekly Sunday School and serving on various committees of the Administrative Board.
