Jeanette Kathryn (Henning) Boyd was born on October 14, 1941 in Allison, IA. She was carried to Heaven on May 27, 2020 at Westbrook Acres Nursing Home in Gladbrook, IA. Jeanette lived a faithful life to her Lord.

Jeanette’s family extends an invitation to anyone who would like to attend her visitation or funeral, but they understand because of the current societal situation and gathering restrictions you may not be able to be there or feel comfortable doing so.

Visitation will be from 12:00-2:00 pm on Monday, June 1, 2020 at the Faith Bible Chapel in Charles City followed by the funeral service, with limited seating, at 2:00 pm at the church. Burial will be at Westside Cemetery in Marble Rock.
Jeanette spent her childhood on her family farm in Greene, IA. She graduated from Greene, IA in 1959 and married her high school sweetheart, William C. Boyd on August 15, 1962 in Allison Iowa. They moved to San Francisco, CA to finish out Bill’s Navel Career before moving back to Marshalltown, IA where they had their first son William Joseph and soon after they moved to Greene, IA. They had their second son, Tyler, before buying their current home in Marble Rock where they would have their last two sons, Jason and Mark. They were happily married for nearly 55 years. They loved one another with a deep, selfless, Christ like love which has been a strong, Godly example for all of us to desire, follow and carry out in our own lives and relationships.

She was a faithful school bus driver for over 40 years for RRMR School District. She enjoyed owning the Break Time Café, where her Mikey Mouse Pancakes, and cinnamon rolls became a local legend. Jeanette always had a pot of coffee on and ready for a good chat.

Jeanette spent the early hours of the morning reading her Bible and praying for the Lord to guide her day. She was inspired to put the words to a melody of what the Lord laid on her heart. “Walking with Jesus each and every day” was Jeanette’s life motto. She became born again at New Life Tabernacle in Mason City, IA where she was filled with the Holy Spirit on October 21, 1990. Jeanette served the Lord in many capacities and provided a tremendous example for her entire family.

Jeanette is survived by her sister Marlys Stoffregan of Cedar Falls; and her brother Johnny Henning of Wyoming; her four sons: William (Rhonda) Boyd of Toledo, IA, Tyler (Sue) Boyd of Weatherford, TX, Jason (Laura) Boyd of Charles City, IA and Mark (Victoria) Boyd of Onalaska, WI; 10 grandchildren; and three great grandchildren.

She was preceded in death by her husband, William; parents, John and Lydia (Heyenga) Henning; siblings: Edward Henning and Wayne and Joan Miller; and one grandson, Dean Boyd.
