Teri Jo Boyd

Teri Jo Boyd lost her valiant fight against cancer on September 24, 2007. Teri was born to Walter R. and Gwendolyn E. Riley on July 23, 1959 in Long Beach, California. The family moved to Oregon in 1972. She graduated valedictorian of Powers High School in 1977. Teri moved to Medford later that year, working at a variety of jobs, until finding a 20-plus year career with Providence Hospital as their financial analyst. She met Rick Boyd in 1985 and they married in 1988. Teri always had the dream of becoming a mother and much to her delight she was blessed with two wonderful children, Benjamin and Danielle.

She was preceded in death by her parents.
