Our precious mom, Donna Rae Boykin (66) of Powells Point NC, passed away February 10th, 2024.

Our mom was born in Oregon to the late James and Shirley Beard, she was one of 6 children.

Norfolk, VA is where she met the love of her life and husband of 35 years, our late father, Eddie Boykin. Together they settled in Currituck, NC where they ran a successful painting business. After our dad’s passing, our Mom worked at the Outer Banks Inn where she was treated as family and made great friends.

Our mom was a devoted wife, mother, grandmother and a good Christian woman. She loved spending her free time with her precious granddaughter, Breanna and great grand baby, Shirley Rea, who was the absolute center of her world. She enjoyed playing with her cats and testing new recipes.

Donna is survived by her sons Roy (Amy) of Powells Point, NC and Jimmy (Joanna) of Kitty Hawk, NC, her beloved granddaughter Breanna Boykin and great granddaughter Shirley Rae of Norfolk, VA, her dearest sister Bonny Sue (Pete) of Smithfield, VA., her sisters in law and numerous nieces, nephews, cousins, friends and extended family members.

Our mom was very loved and she will be terribly missed.

A memorial service will be held in her honor at Powells Point Baptist Church on Saturday February 17th at 11am. All are welcome to attend.
