Adelia Genevieve Boyd, daughter of Arthur and Julia Boyd, was born on July 11, 1911 on a farm near Roland. The family farmed in Story County for several years before moving to a farm near Zearing, where Adelia started her elementary school work. She later graduated from the high school at Gilbert. After graduation, she took up the profession of nursing, graduating from the Iowa Lutheran Hospital in Des Moines. She died private nursing in Story and Boone Counties and school nursing at Story City, Milford Township and Ames. Her late work had been at Boone County Hospital.

She is survived by her parents, three sisters and one brother, Mrs. Herman (Ethel) Holland of Boone, Mrs. Luther (Viola) Couser of Chicago, Miss Bessie Boyd of Monroe, Mich., and Kent Boyd of Ackley, Iowa. There are also four nieces and one nephew, Dorothy, Norma and Bonnie Lou Couser, Donna and Dale Holland, also several aunts and uncles.

She was baptized and confirmed in the Salem Lutheran Church in Roland and was a member of Our Saviors Lutheran Church at Stanhope.

Miss Boyd was a member of the Red Cross and the Iowa State Nursing Association of the Eighth District. Becasue of her devotion to duty and her gracious friendliness with her patients, she was recognized as an outstanding member in her profession. She will be deeply missed by her immediate family and by a large number of friends."
