Margie Frances Boyd

September 17, 1927 — December 31, 2021

Marion, North Carolina

Margie Frances Jaynes Boyd, 94 of Marion, North Carolina, departed her earthly body peacefully, and was immediately met by her glorious Savior and many loved ones on December 31, 2021 at Solace of Asheville. She was born in Albemarle, NC on September 17, 1927, to the late John Vance Jaynes & Dora Linthicum Jaynes. She married her sweetheart, James H. Boyd on Christmas Eve in 1946 and they left for Akron, Ohio to begin their life together where they served the Lord faithfully as charter members of the Akron Freewill Baptist Church, which was pastored by her Brother-in-law, Rev. Kenneth Frisbee. They adopted 2 children and raised them to love the Lord with all their heart, soul, mind & strength. She graduated from Riggs Lemar-Sayre beauty school with a degree in Cosmetology & worked from home as a homemaker and a hairdresser, while her husband “Jim” worked 32 years at Goodyear. They retired & moved back home in 1978. Margie loved bowling, BINGO, crossword puzzles & especially playing cards with friends at the Marion Senior Center. She was also an amazing poem writer. Her son & his wife began a home Bible study in 2010 that was the founding of His Place Worship Center, where she was so faithful in her attendance, prayers & giving. She was dearly loved by her “His Place Family”, and she dearly loved every one of them too.

In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband of 54 years, James H. Boyd, and two siblings, John “Tink” Jaynes & Betty “Boots” Frisbee. Left to cherish her memory is her son Paul Boyd and his wife of 30 years, Marian Boyd, who was her constant caregiver the past 3 1/2 years. Also, her daughter, Paula Jean “Jeanie” Taylor and her husband of 48 years, Sam Taylor. She has 6 grandchildren, 12 great grandchildren, & just recently became a great-great grandmother to Emma Marie Woodberry on December 13, 2021. She is also survived by 6 brothers, Harold Jaynes, Jack Jaynes, David Jaynes, Donald Jaynes, Roy Jaynes, Michael Jaynes & 1 sister Martha “Mott” Gibbs, numerous nephews & nieces, plus her best friend for 3 decades, Anne Burnette, and her faithful canine companion, her dog, Bandit.
The family would like to give a special thank you to the staff of Care Partners, Hospice & Solace. They ALL brought Margie & our family so much comfort during this season.
A celebration of her life will be held at 2:00 p.m. Saturday, January 8, 2022 at Yancey Street Church, with Pastor’s Dean Owenby & Jim Jackson officiating. The family will receive friends one hour prior to the service from 1:00 p.m. until 2 p.m. Interment will be held at the Boyd Cemetery in Mitchell County. There will also be a celebration of her life the following day at her church. The morning worship service will begin at 10:30 am with a selection of some of her favorite hymns, and her “favorite pastor”, her son Paul will be bringing the message.
