Elizabeth "Betty" Boyce Obituary
ELIZABETH "BETTY" BOYCE, of Riverside, California, peacefully passed away on October 18, 2015. Betty was born on March 4, 1928, in Edinburgh, Scotland, to John and Elizabeth (Wilkinson) McKenzie. Betty moved to the United States at the age of 18. She married Jerome "Joe" Boyce in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. In 1948, the newlyweds moved to Los Angeles, California, where they welcomed two daughters. Betty worked as a retail sales professional, enjoyed spending time with her best friend, Marjorie Woods, and later became a caregiver to her husband who passed away in 1984. She returned to Scotland for a short time to comfort her ailing mother until her death. Upon Betty's return to the states, she settled in Riverside, California. She continued to instill Scottish traditions in her daughters and her granddaughters, as they enjoyed annual Scottish Games, wearing of the tartan, and bag pipe music. Additionally, Betty had many dear friends and participated in several community events and activities. Her favorite was playing cards on Sunday evenings. Betty was preceded in death by her parents; brother Robert; and beloved husband. She is survived by her two daughters (Susan Zywiciel and Nancy Brandt); two granddaughters (Averi Zywiciel and Dana Zywiciel); and two great grandchildren (Riley Gervais and Violet Gill). Family to witness ceremony on November 18, 2015, 1:30 PM, at Riverside National Cemetery. Memorial Service to follow at The Meadows Club House, 4000 Pierce Street, at 3 PM.
