Marion Dyer Boyd
August 22, 1926- December 21, 2020
Marion Dyer Boyd, most recently of Titusville, FL, departed this life peacefully at the home of her son in Mobile, AL, on December 21, 2020. She was 94. Born August 22, 1926, in Cumberland, MD, Marion moved to Calvert County following her graduation from nurses training, where she met and married Russell Irvin Boyd of Barstow, MD, in 1949. A career nurse and Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetist, Marion was a long-time employee of Calvert Memorial Hospital. She and Russell raised a family and made their home in Dares Beach for most of their working years before retiring to Florida to begin the second chapter of their life together.
Beloved wife, mother, Nana, and Great-Nana, Marion was preceded in death by her husband Russell. She is survived by her two children, Jay Boyd (Marybeth) of Mobile, AL, and Penelope Boyd-Gear (Mark) of Titusville, FL; six grandchildren; and four great-grandchildren. Marion was always there when someone needed a helping hand or an encouraging word, whether a family member, a lifelong friend, or someone newly met. Marion made the world a better place. She will be sorely missed.
