In Loving Memory Thelma "June" Boyd September 1, 1930 - December 29, 2020
Our beloved mother Thelma "June" Boyd passed away peacefully with loving family by her side at 89, in Santa Rosa, California, on December 29, 2020. June was born September 1, 1930, in London, England to Morris and Phyllis Mintz. June was the eldest sibling of sisters, Nina and Valerie and her brother Lloyd Mintz.
June married Ronald Ashton in England and they share three children, Lloyd, Christopher and Starr.
June married Terry Boyd in Las Vegas and Terry became a loving parent, role model, and confidant to June's three children.
June's immigration to United States from England followed her parent's immigration to the United States. She dreamed of a future with a promise of a better life for her children and herself that only America could give. June became a proud citizen of the United States to honor her dreams. She studied Cosmetology, became a licensed Cosmologist and served on the Board of Aestheticians in Las Vegas. June was also actively involved in Las Vegas Real Estate ventures and owned commercial property.
June was a devoted mother who loved her family. She was always happiest when family came to visit, where she could be found in the kitchen cooking a wonderful dinner. She was an adventurer and loved to travel abroad. June loved to dance and on the dance floor was another place where she found so much enjoyment. Our mother also embraced the spiritual aspect of her life. June was raised by Jewish parents, traveled to India to explore Eastern Philosophies, and visited Catholic retreats to reconnect and regain balance. She also attended services at Calvary Chapel Downtown, Las Vegas.
June was preceded in death by her parents, her sister Nina, and Terry Boyd. June is survived by her sister Valerie, and her bother Lloyd. She is survived by her three children Lloyd (Diana) Ashton, Christopher (Julie) Ashton-Boyd, and Starr Salazar, 9 Grandchildren and 20 Great Grandchildren. June loved and adored all of her grandchildren. June Boyd will be greatly missed by her loving family and will always be kept in the hearts and memories of those who have loved her.
