THE TILLER AND TOILER, 7 February 1929
Former Garfield Woman Dies

Friends in this community were saddened last Wednesday upon receiving word that Mrs. Tom Boyd, who for many years resided in the Garfield community, had passed away the preceding night at her home near Charleston, Kansas, after a brief illness of the flu. The Boyd’s lived for several years on a farm south of the river, moving to their own farm near Charleston, about ten years ago, and where they lived at the time of Mrs. Boyd’s death last Tuesday night, January 29. The remains were brought to Garfield and services were conducted at the Methodist church by the pastor, Rev. W. B. Summers, Thursday afternoon, and interment was made in the Garfield cemetery.
In Mrs. Boyd’s passing, three children, two little girls and a boy are left motherless. The oldest, a daughter, is about 13 years of age.
Miss Anna Sofia Carlson was born September 29, 1884, in Ehijo, Sweden, and departed this life January 29, 1929, at her home near Charleston, Kan., at the age of 44 years and 4 months.
In 1900 she was confirmed in and became a member of the Swedish Lutheran church to which she remained a member until her death.
In 1908, at the age of 24, she came to America and lived in the state of Iowa for a short time and then moved to Garfield, Kansas, where she made her home for several years and here she was united in marriage with Thomas Boyd, also of Garfield. To this union were born three children, Alice, Esther and Carl all of whom are living.
In 1919 the family moved to Charleston, Kan., where they resided at the time of her death. Her death was rather sudden and came with a shock to the relatives. She was loved by all who knew her and was a kind and devoted wife and mother.
She leaves to mourn her departure her husband and three children, two brothers and one sister, and a host of other relatives and friends.
The remains were brought to Garfield on Wednesday, January 30, and the funeral services were conducted Thursday afternoon at the Methodist church by Rev. W. B. Summers and the interment was in the Garfield cemetery.
