Anna Marie (Murphy) Boyden 

Age 95, gently left us on January 3, 2018 after a full and adventurous life. She called Chevy Chase, McLean, Potomac, Istanbul, Athens, and her native Wayne, PA all home. Beloved wife of the late Robert Boyden and wonderful mother of Paul (Catherine) Boyden of Leesburg, VA; Brian (Anne) Boyden of Bethesda, MD; Joyce Alaea (Rex) Beynon of Swansea, UK; and, Joan (David) Burr of Maplewood NJ. Adored grandmother of Thomas, Matthew and Patrick Boyden, Tara Beynon, Christie Boyden, and Lauren Burr.

Anna worked for the FBI during the war years, and later for the US Embassy in Athens, where she met and married Robert and raised their family overseas and in Potomac, MD. She claimed to be lucky -- to be raised Irish Catholic, work for the FBI, join the State Department, marry Robert, live in exciting cities and times, watch her children and grandchildren grow, and to have so many friends. In truth, all who knew her were the lucky ones. 

Visitation will be held at the Shrine of the Most Blessed Sacrament on Saturday, January 27 at 1:00 PM until time of Mass at 2:00 PM. In lieu of flowers, memorials can be made to JSSA Hospice (
