Mary Belle Grazier

July 30, 1926 — March 2, 2024

Mary Belle Kinsel Boyd Grazier passed peacefully at the age of 97 on March 2, 2024, surrounded by her beloved family.  Mary Belle was born in Columbus, Ohio to Thomas and Mary Kinsel on July 30, 1926.  

Mary Belle graduated from high school and moved to Kansas City, Missouri to work for the Unity School of Christianity. It was through friends from the church that she traveled to Wyoming where she met John Boyd, and they were married in 1947.  They moved to Ft. Washakie, WY and were soon transferred to Browning, MT for his work with the Bureau of Indian Affairs.  It was in Browning where her three children (David, Beverly, and Shirley) were born.  They were transferred to Dixon in 1955 where they lived for many years.  Her greatest joy was watching her three children grow up where she attended countless basketball, football, and softball games.   She was known for her outstanding baking, especially her pies, and worked at several restaurants in the Mission Valley.  

After being widowed, she married Don Grazier in 2000 and moved to his cattle ranch in Garrison.  They moved to Ronan to be near family where they spent the remainder of their years.  Mary Belle especially loved looking at the mountains from her front window.  She enjoyed anything that had to do with her children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren including sporting events, ranch activities, and putting together countless jigsaw puzzles over a cup of coffee. 

She is preceded in death by her first husband, John Boyd and son David as well as second husband, Don and her siblings Martin Kinsel, Jean Horn, and Ray Kinsel.  

She is survived by her two daughters, Beverly Horner (Jack) and Shirley Baker (Barry) of Ronan, daughter-in-law Connie Boyd of Dixon, as well as six grandchildren, David John Boyd of Monument, CO, Jodi Bergh of Ronan, Jamie Horner of Polson, Wade Baker of Scottsdale, AZ, Kristy Harwell of Sherwood, OR, and Matt Baker of Ronan, as well as 10 great-grandchildren and numerous nieces and nephews.
