Anne Adcock Boyd
October 15, 1929 – September 25, 2019
Anne Adcock Boyd, 89, passed away on Wednesday, September 25, 2019, in Fort Mill, SC. A long-time resident of Charlotte, NC, and faithful member of her church, Anne loved her Savior and her family, devoting her life in service to them.
A native of Oxford, North Carolina, she was the daughter of David Warren Adcock and Bessie Hobgood Adcock. Married to the love of her life—George Watkins Boyd, Sr.—for 53 years, Anne survived his loss for 19 years by keeping his memory alive through the many stories she shared about him and their life together; her family will do the same for her with our stories of her strength and persistence. Anne’s siblings—Aylese Stem (sister) and Hobgood Adcock (brother)—also predeceased her. Anne worked in a variety of jobs; but her favorite was taking care of infants in a child development center, a job she did until she was 80 years old. Throughout her life, she was involved in a variety of organizations in her church and her neighborhood, always looking for ways to help people.
Anne is survived by her three sons and two daughters-in-law: George W. Boyd, Jr. and Lynn Boyd of Wilson, NC; Warren Boyd and Debra Boyd of Fort Mill, SC; and Marshall Boyd of Charlotte, NC. She is also survived by grandchildren Laura McNair (Mike), Emily Dishman (Michael), Brad Boyd (April), Sarah Beamon (Jason), and Leslie Lyon (John) and great-grandchildren Zeke McNair, Emma Rose and Elly Dishman, Ruthie Mauro, Paige and Aidan Dennard; Landon, Anna Grace, and Jack Beamon; and Lilly and Fleming Lyon. On Tuesday, October 1, 2019, a memorial service to celebrate Anne’s life will be held at Mountain Island Community Church, 4316 Mt. Holly-Huntersville Road, Charlotte, NC, 28216, with Rev. Tim Nichols officiating. The family will receive friends at the church at 1:00 p.m., with the memorial service following at 2:00 p.m.
In lieu of flowers, memorials may be sent to Mountain Island Community Church.

Ann was a special lady. She always remembered my family at Christmas and would share her fudge. When my youngest son was born, we found out that he was allergic to nuts. She always made a special tin just for him, she was always so thoughtful. You could see her walk with the Lord in things she said and in her touch. She will be missed and I truly loved her.
