Constance Boykin Obituary

Constance Lousie Boykin, daughter of the late Melvin E. and Virginia R. Boykin, was born on June 23, 1950, in Dayton, Ohio. She was the oldest of nine children. She transitioned into the loving arms of her Savior Jesus Christ on October 7, 2023, at Englewood Health & Rehabilitation Center.

Constance, affectionately known as Connie, attended Dayton Public Schools and graduated from Roosevelt High School in 1969. She gave her life to Christ at an early age at Mt. Carmel Missionary Baptist Church. Connie was a long-time active member of Mt. Carmel until her health began to decline in her later years. She faithfully served on the Guild Girls Ministry, Usher Board, and the Culinary Ministry.

Connie loved to decorate her home for all holidays including Valentine’s Day. She enjoyed doing various arts & craft activities, crossword and word search puzzles. You could often find Connie watching her favorite western television shows. From an early age, Connie had a passion and love for cooking. She was dedicated to pouring her love, soul, and special touch in every special meal she prepared. Connie took her passion for cooking into the workforce as she became the Cook for the Miami Valley Child Development Centers, where she worked diligently for 15 years until her retirement. After a few short years into her retirement years, she felt the call to continue to serve students and went on to serve as a Food Service Preparer at Kiser Middle School and Thurgood Marshall High School. Connie cherished her time in the kitchen, and everyone loved her specialty foods including pasta salad, garden salad, baked beans, dressing, and bbq ribs and chicken. Her home was always open for all family gatherings and holidays.

Connie was preceded in death by her father Melvin, mother Virginia, grandparents, brother Allan, and granddaughters Sha’Dymond and Zyiah.

Connie leaves to cherish her memory her three loving daughters: Dawanya, Shanala, and KaJena. Two sisters: Linda and Tracy (Ernest). Five brothers: Vernon, Martin, Lynn, Wayne, and Randall. Sister-in-law: Jennifer.  Aunt: Catrine Harper of Cleveland, OH.  Eight grandchildren: Bryant, Corey (Vora), Brittney, Adrian, Ar’Jena, Dwight, Michael, and Tyre. Bonus grandchild: Jessica.  Seven great-grandchildren: Cameron, Bry’Erra, Bry’Lan, Nola, Niq’Arion, Mazi, and Bry’Arion.
