Our beloved mother and grandmother, Catherine Boykin, passed into her heavenly home on April 11, 2017. She was born February 3, 1923 to Lou and Marjorie Graham. Catherine lived in Whatcom County most of her 94 years, enjoying many years on Lummi Island. She is preceded in death by her husband Hilton (Reb) Boykin of 57 years, her son Jerry Boykin, and her son-in-law Gordy Pederson. Kay is survived by her daughters Teri Pederson of Monroe, LA, Donna Saab (Al) of Ferndale, and daughter-in-law Janice Boykin of Birch Bay. Kay has 8 grandchildren, 19 great-grandchildren, and 1 great-great-grandchild.
Kay was a longtime member of the First Baptist Church in Ferndale. Per Kay's wishes, there will be a private family graveside service.
