Victoria Irene "Vicki" Boyd
1938 - 2021
Victoria Irene Boyd - 83, Debert. Vicki worked most of her career as a registered nurse at Hillcrest Manor in Truro where she loved taking care of people. During her spare time, and after her retirement, you would find Vicki enjoying her gardens and making the most wonderful preserves, jams and jellies. Family holiday dinners were her specialty; no one would leave hungry and there was always room for another person at the table. She was an avid baker and created breathtaking wedding cakes, birthday cakes and the family recipe for "Two-Island" tarts. She loved reading and doing crossword puzzles, and spending time with her husband, daughters, grandson, family and friends.
Vicki is survived by her daughter, Janet Leblanc, Greenwood; grandson, Thomas Kinnie; son-in-law, Bruce Kinnie, Fredericton, New Brunswick; sister, Eloise Yorke, Parrsboro; brothers, Wade MacAloney, Amherst; Joe MacAloney, Two Islands; many extended family members. She was predeceased by her husband, Leslie Boyd (Belmont); daughter, Heather Boyd-Kinnie (Fredericton).
A special thank you to the entire staff of Shannex Debert Court for the outstanding care and love they had for Vicki while she was a resident in their nursing home.
Arrangements for cremation have been entrusted to Mattatall - Varner Funeral Home, 55 Young Street, Truro. As per her wishes, there will not be a funeral service. There will be a private family interment at a future date.
