LLOYD, GracePosted: September 22nd, 2020
It is with heavy hearts that we say goodbye to GRACE LLOYD, beloved wife, mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother. Grace passed away Friday, September 18, 2020 following her brave battle with cancer at the age of 77 years.
She now joins her husband, Ralph Lloyd and her daughter, Karen McNeely in the afterlife. She will lovingly be remembered by her daughters; Colleen (Marty) Vredegoor and Patsy (Lucky) Van Ryn, grandchildren; Mandie (Shane) Vredegoor, Jordan (Caley) Reid & Melissa (Taylor) Bilodeau, great-granddaughters; Hadley & Brynlee Bilodeau, future grandson; Deklen Bilodeau, sisters; Sandra Fisher, Cecelia (Gary) Harmon & Cheryll (Myles) Ockerman and close friends; Joan Townsend & Stella Lewis.
Grace was predeceased by her parents Grace & Frank Rodinyak and her brother-in-law, David Lloyd, as well as her mother & father-in-law Floyd & Marion Lloyd.
Grace was an avid lover of Elvis Presley, a fiercely competitive bingo participant, a computer whiz you could always rely on for tech-support and a skilled Nintendo player. She enjoyed camping, card games and word puzzles. Her favorite hobby was assembling photo albums to commemorate important moments in the lives of her children and grandchildren. She will always be remembered as a loving matriarch who, no matter how old her grandchildren became, would gift them with oversized Christmas socks the length of their legs; a metaphor for the depth of her love. While she may not have had much, what she did have, she shared. She will be greatly missed and always remain in our hearts.
