February 11, 1943 - April 27, 2022
Michele Boyd Chelan, WA (formerly of Edmonds, WA) Mother, grandmother, wife, sister, teacher, soccer coach, and referee, Michele L. Boyd, passed away in her beautiful home at Lake Chelan, WA, on April 27, 2022. Michele Louise Drake was born in 1943, (she claimed 1944 for years) and was raised in the Portland, OR, area with her parents and two sisters. She met the love of her life, Terry Boyd, at Seattle University and they married in 1964. They loved each other deeply for the next 57 years while she raised five children, and loved her 12 grandchildren and 2 great-grandchildren. Other than her family, Michele’s greatest love in her life was education. She taught in local school systems where she lived (Edmonds, WA, Boise, ID, and Manson, WA), loved coaching her daughter’s soccer teams (BK girls State Champs 86 and 87), and being a National Level soccer referee instructor. Further, she loved teaching herself-how to paint, how to play the guitar and hammered dulcimer, how to quilt and crochet, how to draw, and how to share those gifts with others. She used these gifts as a parishioner of St. Francis de Sales Catholic Church in Chelan, as a member of the women’s guild and choir. Most notable to everyone who knew her was her presence. It was amazing how this 5’0 (actually 4’11) bundle of energy was always the biggest presence in the roo. Michele was predeceased by her parents, Lorne and Sylvaine Drake; sister, Lorene Sheppard; daughter-in-law, Michele Boyd; and daughter, Dana Marie Boyd. She is survived by her adoring family, husband, Terry Boyd; sister, Pamela Drake; children: Scot Boyd, Kevin Boyd and wife, Kristi, Kellie J. Campbell and husband, Doug, and Daren Boyd and wife, Sandy; grandchildren: Makayla Boyd, Corin Campbell, Rian Boyd, MacGregor Boyd, Drake Campbell, Coleman Boyd, Jamicen Boyd, Brendan Boyd, Griffin Campbell, Keegan Boyd, Chloe Boyd, and Kaiya Boyd; great-grandchildren: Briilynne Tremmel and Delani Boyd; and seven nieces and nephews. On behalf of Terry, the family is thankful for all of the expressions of caring and love for her and our family. Services will be held on May 21, 2022, at St. Francis de Sale Catholic Church, 215 W. Allen Ave., Chelan, WA, at 12 noon. In lieu of flowers, donations in Michele’s name to any of the following would be greatly appreciated.
