Verna Boyd

June 8, 1946 — February 10, 2024

     Verna Ruth Boyd, 77, passed away peacefully in her home surrounded by her loved ones after a long battle with brain cancer on February 10, 2024.

     Verna was born in Marlow, OK., on June 8, 1946, to Dalton and Hazel Bible. She was one of ten children in her family.

     Verna had always been family-oriented growing up, loving all things family.

     On April 8, 1988, she married the love of her life, Gregory Boyd, and they combined their families and had an amazing life together. Between them, they had eight children and loved every minute of their lives together.

     Verna enjoyed spending time at the occasional “cachinger” or casino testing her luck at the games. Her favorite place by far was the home she and Greg built themselves from the ground up in Newell, SD., which is also where she loved to spend time whenever she could get there.

     Verna was very full of life, she was a sassy, quick-witted lady and was NEVER afraid to speak her mind, which is why everyone she met loved her so much.

     She will truly be missed by so many.

     She is survived by her husband, Gregory Boyd; eight children; twenty-two grandchildren; nineteen great-grandchildren; and two great-great grandchildren.

     She was preceded in death by her mother, Hazel, her father, Dalton Bible, and eight of her siblings.

     A graveside service will be held at 2:00 pm Friday February 16, 2924 at St. Mary’s cemetery near Plymouth, IL.

     The Hamilton Funeral Home in Augusta, IL is assisting her family with arrangements.
