Timmonsville woman celebrates 105th birthday

Isadora Perkins Boyd

Isadora Perkins Boyd was born August 22, 1908 in Timmonsville.

The 105-year-old is possibly the oldest living person in the town, according to Timmonsville town officials.

Her family and friends gathered Friday evening to celebrate Boyd's birthday in grand style with a big party in Darlington County.

She's the aunt of Timmonsville Mayor Darrick Jackson. He presented her with a special proclamation on behalf of the town.

Boyd and her late husband raised four children. Three of them preceded her in death. Her daughter still makes her home in Timmonsville.

Boyd's family says she loves Mt. Zion United Methodist in Timmonsville where she's attended for many years.

She's loved by a host of grandchildren, great-grandchildren, great-great-grandchildren and scores of other relatives.
