Obituary

Bonnie Irene (Blood) Boyd passed away Sunday, May 23, 2021 at the age of 89. Bonnie was born December 30, 1931 in Wentworth MO to the late Clifford Cleveland and Manda Irene (Riddle) Blood. She lived her entire lifetime in the Joplin, MO area. It was in Joplin that she was united in marriage to Bill Lee Boyd on May 12, 1955. He preceded her in death on January 3, 1999.

In addition to her parents and husband, Bonnie was preceded in death by her son Terry Lee Boyd, daughter-in-law Brenda A. Pelham-Boyd and siblings Clifford Blood Jr, Ella Belle (Blood) Ussery, Cecil Blood, Leon Blood, Myrtle Nadene (Blood) Hannel, Kenneth Billy Blood and Norma Blood.

Bonnie was always about family. She is survived by son Richard Boyd of Oronogo, MO; daughter Sherri Critchfield and husband John Jr. of Stilwell KS; and brother Vernace Blood of Joplin. She is also survived by eight grandchildren, eleven great-grandchildren and four great-great-grandchildren. Grandchildren are Reverend Christian Boyd and wife Karen, Waukesha, WI; Karena Boyd, Ottawa, KS; Nathan Boyd and wife Chelle, Joplin; Jarrod Boyd and wife Erin, Neosho, MO; Ace Luke Pelham and fiancé Monica Ballay, Webb City, MO; Kandice Boyd, Springfield, MO; Jesse Boyd, Branson, MO; and Sandy Dillard and husband Michael Jr, Joplin. Great-grandchildren are Kameron Boyd, Caitlin Boyd, Patrick Boyd, Peyton Adamson, Riley Boyd, Liam Adamson, William Boyd, Login Boyd, Lexis Shontaé (Lexie) Boyd, Leshan Boyd and Zezra Dillard. Great-great-grandchildren are Marley Lee-Ann, Arabella LeeAnn, Deion Ezra Lee and Keyontae’ Lee Boyd.

Bonnie lived her early years in Wentworth on her maternal grandparents’ farm until moving to Joplin to start school. She had a lot of fond memories of living in the Smelter Hill neighborhood where she attended Eagle-Picher School and North Junior High School. She started her career in retail at an early age of fourteen, working for a local neighborhood market. When Bonnie was only sixteen years old, she began attending Joplin Business College. Soon after, she began working for Sears on Main Street and helped them move to the Plaza Shopping Center. She briefly worked for May’s Drug, then went on to spend many years working for Newman’s Department Store. Again, she started while they were on Main Street, went through the move to Northpark Mall, and finally was one of the last two employees of Newman’s after they closed their doors. After retiring, she continued working on a volunteer basis, including Crosslines Ministries and the Salvation Army Store.

While family and work took a good deal of her time, Bonnie loved to keep busy and found time for a variety of interests. During both younger and older years, she enjoyed going to dances with friends. She enjoyed trying recipes, finding favorites to take to potluck dinners. Bonnie’s creative talents led her to joining with her husband and daughter to sell items they made at weekend craft shows, especially enjoying floral arranging and folk-art painting. Her creativity was also valuable when decorating the home, which, of course, frequently involved rearranging furniture. It was during the time the family lived in Spring City that her love for being outside and working in the yard and garden really began to take root, a love that lasted until her final days.

During her quieter times, she enjoyed visiting with friends and family, solving puzzles (especially crosswords), watching singing competition shows and a big one - playing dominoes with the girls. While she didn’t do a lot of reading, her time spent reading the Bible was dear to her, as was the time she spent involved with her church, Christ’s Community in Joplin.

Graveside services have been moved due to weather still scheduled for 1:00 p.m. Thursday, May 27. 2021 at the Mason-Woodard Chapel. The family will receive friends during a time of visitation from 6 to 7 p.m. Wednesday evening at the funeral home.

Arrangements have been entrusted to Mason-Woodard Mortuary & Crematory.
