New Haven Register (Sunday) (New Haven, CT) - - BUSINESS -

Bar­bara C. Boyd, beloved wife of de­ceased Roger W. Boyd, died peace­fully sur­rounded by fam­ily at Ever­green Woods re­tire­ment home, North Bran­ford, CT, on Wed­nes­day, August 2nd 2018. Bar­bara was born in Walling­ford on June 15, 1920, as the daugh­ter of Clarence and Ethel Cooper. She is sur­vived by her daugh­ter Sally Boyd Jegier, of Hol­land PA, and her son Bryant C. Boyd of Madi­son, CT, grand­daugh­ters Erika Oman of Long Branch, New Jer­sey and Christina Boyd of Red­ding, CT and grand­sons Dirk Oman of Ch­ester­field, PA and Ni­cholas Boyd of Lakeville, MA, as well as two great grand­daugh­ters Char­lotte and Cle­men­tine Boyd. Bar­bara resided with her hus­band Roger for 60 years in Or­ange, par­tic­i­pated to­gether with him ac­tively in nu­mer­ous town char­i­ties and other lo­cal ac­tiv­i­ties, and worked for over a decade as assistant as­ses­sor in the Or­ange Town Hall. She also had many creative tal­ents which found their ex­pres­sion in sewing, em­broi­dery, knit­ting and in par­tic­u­lar quilt­ing for which she won a num­ber of awards. She loved to travel, and to host guests from abroad, in­clud­ing ex­change stu­dents. But we will re­mem­ber her most for her con­ta­gious en­thu­si­asm for life, her en­ergy, her gen­eros­ity, her keen sense of hu­mor, and her love of cook­ing, bak­ing and en­ter­tain­ing of fam­ily and friends. She was an amaz­ing - in­spir­ing - mother and grand­mother in ev­ery re­spect, and our fam­ily will miss her dearly.

Bar­bara is pre­de­ceased by her hus­band Roger Boyd Sr., her old­est son Roger Boyd Jr., and her 3 sib­lings Ger­ald Cooper, Lloyd Cooper and Char­lotte Stone. A me­mo­rial ser­vice will be held on Satur­day, August 18th, 10:00 a.m. at the Or­ange Con­gre­ga­tional Church, to which all are wel­come. In lieu of flow­ers, the fam­ily sug­gests do­na­tions to the Alzheimers foun­da­tion.
