She was born September 20, 1918 to Lillie and Austin Kinser, and grew up on the family farm outside Burnet. Upon graduation from high school, she moved to Austin to work and attend business college, and subsequently worked for nearly 40 years in the business office and in patient relations for the Treadwell & Treadwell optometry practice in the capital city.

Mrs. Boyd was known for her giving spirit and unconditional love she extended to everyone she met. She spent many years as an active member of Wilshire Presbyterian Church in Austin, and was a long-time volunteer at Seton Hospital.
