Mrs. Boyd, of Ruth, MS, passed from this life on Monday, March 29, 2021, at home with her loving family by her side. She was born on June 29, 1940, to Ralph and Nettie Roberts Clark. She was a member of Ruth Baptist Church. She worked for many years as a cashier and later as a school bus driver for the Lincoln County School District where she formed many more lasting friendships. She was always so willing to help others in need, whether it meant driving them or providing meals for someone in need. Her heart for serving others will be forever cherished by so many touched by her generosity. She will always be remembered as a loving mother, grandmother, great-grandmother and friend.

Preceding her in death were her parents; husband, Robert L. Boyd; siblings, James Carl Clark, Claude Clark, Hugh Clark, C.P. Clark, James Clark, Jack Clark and Ralph Clark Jr.; sister, Edna Merle Clark; daughter-in-law, Darla Boyd; and our special family friend, Cecil Boyd.

She is survived by her children, Kay Mason, Keith Boyd, Marcia Covington, Melinda Moak (Craig) and Tim Boyd; sisters, Ondean Wilkes and Ruby Brister; grandchildren, Alisha Waldrop (Jake), Colton Mason (Emma), Heather Rayborn (Zak), Robert Bailey (Chelsea), Eric Bailey (Kelby), Brittany Moak and Steven Moak; six great-grandchildren; and a host of family and friends.

Pallbearers are Colton Mason, Robert Bailey, Eric Bailey, Steven Moak, Jake Waldrop and Mark Bailey.
