November 29, 1938 – October 8, 2021
Our dearest and loving mother and grandmother, Mildred Lee Boyd, passed away on October 8, 2021, at the age of 82 due to complications from Covid. Tiny, as she was so affectionately called, was born on November 11, 1938, in DeQueen, Arkansas, the last child of 14 born to Millard Fillmore Simpson and Della May Hughes. After WWII, the family moved to Los Angeles, where Tiny graduated from Hamilton High. After high school, she went to work for Jiffy Pop Popcorn. She would eventually meet and marry Andrew Ralph Boyd on November 18, 1961. After living in numerous states throughout the US, they settled in Midland, Texas in 1976. Tiny was an animal lover, avid gardener, and truly devoted to her grandchildren. Tiny is survived by her daughters Mica R. Johnston, Mia R. Walker and Michael R. Boyd and wife Rachel, 9 grandchildren and 15 great grandchildren as well as numerous nieces and nephews.
