Obituary of Carolyn Sue Lloyd

Carolyn Sue Lloyd, age 76, passed away on Wednesday, July 25, 2018 at her Grand Ledge residence surrounded by the love of family and friends. Referred to as “Sue”, she was born on March 31, 1942 in Jonesboro, Arkansas, to Retha Mae and Adrian Johnson. Sue was a graduate of Malvern High School and Hendricks College in Arkansas, where she received her BA Degree.  In 1964, Sue moved to Las Vegas, NV, to start her career. It was there that she met the love of her life, Clifford P. Lloyd, and they married on February 21, 1965. In 1966, she gave birth to her only child, Douglas Richard Lloyd, who was the apple of her eye. Sue resided in Las Vegas Nevada for over 50 years and had a successful career as a social worker. After retirement, she and Cliff traveled to Michigan routinely to visit their son Doug; grandsons, Matthew and Nicolas Lloyd; and daughter in law, A. Mina Lloyd.  In 2013, after the death of her husband and due to a diagnosis of Chronic Progressive MS years before, Sue moved to Michigan to be close to her son, while having to leave behind her beloved sister in law, JoAnne Lloyd. The Lloyd Boy’s and Mina brought much joy and excitement into her life, while also being able to coordinate her care.  Sue thrived after moving to Michigan. She was a proud grandmother; loved being here to watch her grandsons excel in varsity sports for the Grand Ledge Comets, graduate high school with honors, and start college at MSU. She became a big Spartan fan!

A private memorial service will be scheduled at Fairview Adult Foster Care, date to be determined.  Donations can be made in Sue’s name at Friends may visit the guestbook at
