Boyd, Agnes Jane (Edgar) (1881-1934)

Agnes Jane Edgar was born at Floriston, England on April 1, 1881. She died at the Bethesda Hospital at Crookston May 26, 1934. With her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Thomas Edgar, she came to America when an infant, living for a time in Crookston and later in Warren. In 1895 they removed to the family home five miles south of Warren, where she grew to womanhood and in this neighborhood she has spent her entire life.

She was married to Hugh Boyd in 1919. One daughter, Gloria Jean was born to them. Besides her husband and daughter, she is survived by two brothers, John and Irving Edgar both of Warren and two sisters, Mrs. Janet Clark of Bemidji and Mrs. Mary Robinson of Goodridge, also by her aged mother-in-law, Mrs. Lucetta Boyd.

She was baptized into the Presbyterian church in early childhood. She retained through all the years of her life an abiding faith in the Christian religion and lived that faith in her daily life. Possessed of a vast fund of humor and optimism, she was able to meet the difficulties of life with courage and while she prayed she might be spared, she was content to submit to the operation from which she did not recover, satisfied that it was well whatever the outcome. She will be sadly missed in her home and by the many friends among whom she has lived and by whom her memory will be cherished.
