BOYDEN -- LILA MILLIGAN Age 61, born and raised in Albuquerque, New Mexico and recent resident of Spokane, Washington passed away on June 9, 2012. She is survived by her husband Thomas M. Boyden; daughter Ashley Lowe, husband Shawn and their son Levi of Denver, CO; son Nicholas Boyden of Boulder, CO; mother Betty Milligan and sisters Charla Rice and Carol Shelton. Lila was a loving wife, mother, grandmother, aunt, sister, daughter-in-law and sister-in-law to all of her extended family. Lila's inspiration was her father Dr. Charles D. Milligan, who preceded her in death. Lila married Thomas Boyden on June 12, 1976 and shared 36 years of love and friendship. They raised two loving children, Ashley and Nick, and enjoyed supporting them through their journeys in life. Lila was everyone's "best friend" - she cherished and was committed to the many lifelong friendships she had in Albuquerque, Spokane and elsewhere. Lila was a national officer and served as president of the Albuquerque and Spokane alumni chapters of Kappa Alpha Theta sorority, served on the board of the UNM Alumni Association, and held various offices with the Spokane Compass Club, Wandermere Women's Golf Club, Junior League and NM Symphony Guild. She had an appreciation of fine art and the symphony, and her love for shopping and fashion was evident. Lila enjoyed attending sporting events of all kinds with her husband Tom. She became a follower of the Zags of Gonzaga in recent years, but remained a loyal Lobo at heart. She enjoyed golf and skiing in Taos with family. Although her passing brings us tremendous sadness, we cannot help but smile and share stories when we reflect upon her zest for life, comedic antics, contagious laugh, kind spirit and engaging personality. Services will be held at 10:00am on Friday, June 15, 2012 at St. Stephen's United Methodist Church, 4601 Juan Tabo NE, Albuquerque.
