Christine Gladys Boyd

April 12, 1959 ~ April 29, 2021 (age 62)


On April 12, 1959 Christine Gladys Boyd was born to the parents of Dan Boyd and Lucy Mae Taylor in Clarksdale, MS.  At an early age, Christine accepted Christ and she continued to do the Lord’s work until she took her final breath.

On April 12, 1974 Christine gave birth to her one and only child, Andrew Boyd and years later he blessed her with many grandchildren; Andreakia, Andrew Jr., Aquives, Adarrius, Alajiah, Kayden, & DeAndrew.

Throughout the years, eventually Christine became the 2nd mother to all her siblings, nieces, and nephews.  She helped others and was never the one to look for anything in return.  She was God-fearing, soft spoken, and the pillar of our family.

God saw Christine’s body getting weary and tired so he called her home from this earthly journey and transitioned her into his heavenly rest on Thursday April 29, 2021 because her course was finished.

Visitation will be Friday May 7, 2021 from 1:00 PM - 5:00 PM at Royal Funeral Home.  The graveside memorial will be Saturday May 8, 2021, 2:30 PM, at Oakridge Cemetery with Rev. L.C. Tyler, II officiating.  

Christine was preceded in death by her parents, Lucy & Dan Boyd, her brothers Luther T. Liggins, Danny Curtis Boyd, and Robert Williams.

Christine leaves to cherish her memories her one and only son Andrew Boyd; siblings Johnnie Mae Barber (Roy), Luviena Chandler (John L.), Richard Williams, Clara Taliaferro (Robert), Verna Taliaferro, Hurtis Boyd (Mary), Marilynn Tate (James); a host of grandchildren, other relatives, and friends.

“Do not let your hearts be troubled. You believe in God[a]; believe also in me. 2 My Father’s house has many rooms; if that were not so, would I have told you that I am going there to prepare a place for you? 3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am. 4 You know the way to the place where I am going.”

~John 14: 1-4~
