Bertha (Beth) Elaine Boyd
Jan. 19, 1933 – Jan. 11, 2014
Our beloved wife, mother and grandmother passed away Jan. 11, 2014. She had been a resident of Cheney for over 35 years.
Bertha was raised in Colorado and attended the University of Denver. There she met Bobbie Robinson at a USO dance. He changed her name to Beth because he liked it better. They married and traveled across the United States throughout his career in the U.S. Air Force. Beth loved the adventure of exploring new places.
She was blessed with six children, 22 grandchildren and 14 great-grandchildren. Beth loved to draw and paint and enjoyed sketching the many places they visited on their travels. She was an accomplished writer and had many of her poems and stories published, including "Captive" and "Captive Returning" which were top selling books on tape.
She was an active member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. Beth is survived by her husband Bobbie Gerald Robinson, children Kim (Larry) Jones, Kent (Susan) Robinson, Keith (Beth Levi) Robinson, Kevin Robinson, Kelly Robinson, 22 grandchildren and 14 great-grandchildren, and brother Donald (Phyllis) Boyd.
There will be a private service for the family. Beth will be greatly missed by all those that knew and loved her.
