Ida and Arvil Reid

Class of 1941. Ida Lucile Boyd. School Secretary after graduation. Ida Boyd. Opera. Fauvines. College Enrollment. ~ ~ ~ ~ Her parents: John David Boyd, Jr., and Hannah Peterson Boyd. John and Hannah had eleven children: John David Boyd, Emmet Lorain Boyd, Savie "V" Boyd Peay, Ida Boyd Reid [BYH Class of 1941], Mildred Boyd Arnold, Olive Bengta Boyd, Amelda (not Alameda) Boyd, George Edward Boyd, Lewis Hubbard Boyd, Byron Woodrow Boyd, Sr., and Sherman Boyd. ~ ~ ~ ~ TAMING THE WILD WEST. PROVO -- It's like visiting a wild West museum. Arvil and Ida Boyd Reid's home is a display of mementos from Utah's law enforcement history. An old revolver, sheriff's badges and a banjo that belonged to Ida's father, John D. Boyd, adorn the home. Ida Reid is proud of her heritage as the daughter of one of Utah County's first and finest sheriffs. Growing up in the rugged terrain of southern Arizona, Boyd learned the ways of the wild West from his father, John Boyd Sr., the deputy sheriff of Cochise County, Ariz. Tombstone was the county seat. By the age of 23, John Boyd Jr. was working for his father in defending the peace of the West. His first assignment from his father, who deputized his son, was one that would make him famous. Boyd was assigned to chase a stagecoach robber named Jackson, the last reported stagecoach robbery in the state. Fearlessly, Boyd and his companions followed the trail of the robber through the southeastern Arizona desert moving from ranch to ranch. They found an old run-down cabin with a horse tied to a post. Suspecting this might be the hideout of Jackson, Boyd and his men circled the cabin and waited for Jackson to surface. They didn't have to wait long as the door opened and out of the dark shadows stepped a dark-bearded, dirty man holding a set of saddlebags in one hand and a Winchester rifle in the other. Boyd demanded the man drop his rifle and Jackson instead immediately lifted the rifle to his shoulder. Before Jackson could pull the trigger, Boyd fired his six-shooter and with amazing precision grazed Jackson in the shoulder with a round. Jackson fell to the ground in pain and the chase was over. For the next three days and nights Jackson was handcuffed to Boyd in order to prevent his escape. Boyd felt jail was not a safe enough place for Jackson. Jackson's brother trailed Boyd for many years seeking vengeance for Jackson's imprisonment. Boyd's early life was much like an old television western series. One day he'd be after Butch Cassidy and his men and the next he would be warding off Indian attacks and building friendships with them in Apache. Near the end of his life he said, "Television doesn't begin to tell the adventures of the Old West as we lived them. I guess I'm about the only old timer left who remembers the sagas of the Apache Kid, the Wham robbery and the other thrilling adventures of the Arizona frontier." His life was filled with excitement and adventure, but Boyd was more than just a gun-slinging cowboy. He was a devoted family man. On July 1, 1899, J.D. Boyd married Hannah Peterson in Mammoth, Utah. They became the parents of 11 children. Their daughter, Ida, recalls the memories of her father, who was so well respected he was re-elected to the Utah County Sheriff's Office three straight terms and won the popular vote in both parties. While Boyd was serving as the Utah County Sheriff from 1920-30 the Boyd family lived in a big white house that once stood next door to the current courthouse. Ida recalls how convicts would stop by the house right after being let out of jail to thank Boyd for the advice and support he gave them. "He was so kind to everyone and he believed in 'hating the sin, while loving the sinner,'" Reid said. "There was always a house full of people. Mom and Dad wouldn't let a tramp go by without feeding them." When Ida was 10 years old, her family moved into a house on 500 North across from the old Brigham Young Academy and they have lived there ever since. Ida spoke of the hardships her family faced during her early years. Her sister, Amelda, was diagnosed with glaucoma behind both eyes at the age of 1. Three years later, Amelda was buried after an attempted life-saving surgery. Other hardships awaited the family as an older brother went to fight in World War I at the age of 17. One year later, on his 18th birthday, he was returned home as the first casualty of the war from Utah County. Although he was always busy catching bootleggers and bandits, Boyd had time to take his family on trips to Arizona and Mexico, where he was recognized all along the trail. In his older years he would gather the family around and play his banjo and sing in his Irish brogue. Reid remembers how Boyd would sit at her bedside and tell stories of the wild West. She had a tear in her eye as she remembered, "Dad walked to work in a five-beaver Stetson hat. I can still see him walking down the street in his overcoat and Stetson. He was a very dignified man whose handshake was as good as his word." [By David D. Farnsworth, Provo Daily Herald September 18, 1999.] ~ ~ ~ ~ HER OBITUARY: Ida Lucile Boyd Reid, beautiful and loving wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, sister, and friend, passed on to her heavenly home on Saturday, December 9, 2006 encircled in love by her family. Ida's first and foremost love was the happiness of her family. She was married to Arvil Shields Reid on November 4, 1942 in her family home in Provo, Utah, and then later sealed in the Manti LDS Temple on July 1, 1952. Ida is survived by her loyal and loving husband, Arvil, who cared for her and was by her side continuously throughout the years. She was also survived by her sister, Mildred Arnold (Earl) of Las Vegas, Nevada, and two daughters, Leslie Ann Reid Gledhill (Michael) of Provo, Utah and Becky Sue Reid Dayton (Bruce) of Roseville, California. They have 11 grandchildren and 2 2/3 great- grandchildren, who were her little treasures. She was so proud of all their accomplishments and was the most proactive mother and grandmother in the world. We know that her influence will not end. ~ ~ Ida was the 11th child of Hannah Peterson and John David Boyd, born Dec 3, 1922 in Heber City, Utah. She idolized her mother and father, keeping their stories alive in pictures and books. Ida's life revolved around her love of music. She took the lead in several BY High School operettas. She graduated from BY High in 1941. She was the first president of Provo Chauntenetts and a member of the first Cougarette Quartette of BYU. She was involved as ward and stake chorister and was a member of the Geneva Steel Chorus. Ida played the part of "Sister Irvine", secretary to LDS President Lorenzo Snow, in the movie, "Windows of Heaven." She was a member of the Provo Women's Council and the National Secretaries Association. While Arvil was serving in WWII she worked at Geneva Steel, then as BY High Secretary and as an elementary secretary for the Provo School District for almost 18 years. She also loved making porcelain dolls. In her own words she said "Some of my favorite things are raising my two beautiful, talented daughters and being a part of their lives, tending and being with my sweet grandchildren, and trips with Arvil." Her family will miss her more than words can express, and will look forward to seeing her again someday, knowing that families are forever. Funeral services were held on Wednesday, December 13, 2006 in Provo, Utah. Interment, Santaquin City Cemetery. [Provo Daily Herald, December 11, 2006.]

Source 2: Students Record of Class Standings B. Y. Academy, Book 2, Page 8. ~ ~ ~ ~ Dell was born in 1879 in Springville, Utah. His family came from the Pennsylvania Boyers, who in turn came from an earlier "Bayer" ancestry in areas of what is now Holland and Germany. A portion of the Boyer DNA has been traced to John Alden, famous as a Mayflower pilgrim who wooed for another and won for himself. Boyer's earlier secondary education at what was then the Brigham Young Academy high school, was delayed by the ill health he had endured in much of his youth. Through his ambition and the sacrifices of his family, he acquired training in Los Angeles to become an osteopathic physician. He served humanity well. He married Grace Guymon. More by example than by word, he taught his children logical reasoning, compassion, love of others, honesty, and discipline applied with understanding. He also taught such skills such as pitching horseshoes and growing vegetables. He loved to travel. Family trips to Yellowstone and to what are now national parks in Southern Utah, driving the primitive roads and cars of that day, were real family adventures. Dell Boyer became a widower when the youngest of his children was only eight. Fifteen years later he married another fine woman. They shared many happy times, and she cared for him during a long illness. He died from prostate cancer at the age of 82.

I grew up living across the street from Academy Square on First East. To us it was always known as the Lower Campus, and we played on the lawns on the south and west and among the buildings. An abiding memory from those days is the sound of music that poured from the practice rooms in the basement of College Hall on the east half of the block. We played our games to the accompaniment of endless scales and practice compositions. We attended B.Y. High School in the Arts Building on the northwest portion of the block, and additional classes were held in the other buildings. Plays and weekly assemblies were held in College Hall. The Mens Gym on the top floor of the Training School Building on the northeast part of the block included such features as a great pole to slide from the dressing rooms down to the gym floor, exercise ladders, and a ping-pong table in a caged area above the Gym.
