Monserate DAR daughter Boyd turns 100

FALLBROOK – At their April 20 Monserate DAR Chapter meeting, members celebrated Laverne Boyd as she was turning 100 years old on April 22. Boyd has been a member of Daughters of the American Revolution for over 42 years; she has held the office of Monserate Chapter Regent four times and contributed many hours to the chapter.

Boyd has also held national positions. She has shared her talents with her nation many times over. Boyd has 20 patriots who fought in the American Revolutionary War in her family tree. Chapter registrar Maureen Hudson composed a booklet with information on each one of her 20 patriots, that along with a personal lap blanket were given to her from the chapter.

Boyd's daughter Stephanie shared a story about how her mother researched each one of her patriots. Boyd and her sister would take trips in her motorhome going from town to town talking with people and researching libraries in the town. She did not have the luxury of the internet and computers to assist her in this complicated and difficult task. Despite this she found a whopping 20 patriots, a woman of true character and endurance.

Her day was celebrated with a tribute to past achievements, balloons, and a cake. To complete her special day, a parade was held with a 1930 Model A Standard Phaeton driven by Fred Weisberger from the Fallbrook Vintage Car Club and a 55 Belair Chevrolet driven by DAR member Suzanne Lemoine

Boyd shared that her dad owned a 55 chevy when she was younger. Seeing the car brought fond memories. Boyd, her daughter and Chapter Regent Barbara Romero rode down Main Avenue and Mission Road with horns sounding, balloons, posters, and pom poms. Boyd had a grin from ear to ear.
