Obituary for Ann Marie Lloyd

Ann M. Lloyd passed away peacefully, November 7th after an exceedingly long battle with illness.

Ann Marie (McLay) Lloyd of Holly died at Providence Park Hospital On Thursday November 7th at the age of 73 surrounded by family. Born October 30th 1946 in Pontiac she was the eldest daughter of John and Edna (Morgan) McLay. She grew up in Milford, later on moving to Highland and working at the Oakland County Courthouse.

In 1968 she married the love of her life, Paul (Rusty) Lloyd Jr of Rochester, Pennsylvania. Tragically she lost him soon after, while she was pregnant with their daughter Aislinn Kelly (Lloyd) Smith.

Raising Aislinn on her own, she did her best to act as both Mother and Father. She did her best to work to give them a good life, while being there for her daughter. Ann was ahead of her time, encouraging her daughter in any interest, even those that were not typically ones, at the time, a girl would pursue. One example is Aislinn’s interest in science. She made sure to take her to Greenfield Village to visit Thomas Edison’s lab on several occasions.

Ann had a strong sense of duty to her community starting at a young age. As a teenager she joined the Civil Defense League in Milford during the Vietnam war. Later in life she joined Beta Sigma Phi and began to participate in service projects such as raising money for Paws with a Cause and Lighthouse (a shelter for battered women and children). She was active in sorority until her illness made it impossible to participate.

Ann also collected people. She went out of her way to help people she cared about, adopting a few into her family. She loved making new friends and countless people have mentioned how they looked forward to her chats with them and was such a comforting soul. She brought a smile to many a face.

Ann was an avid reader and fan of all science fiction. (She actually dragged her daughter to the debut of Star Wars, going to far as to get back in line as soon as the movie was over). She liked to play online and phone games and was enthusiastic user of social media. She loved to explore and before her illness made it too difficult, she scoured Marketplace for neat collectables and enjoyed meeting new people and visiting new places to collect her new acquisitions.

She was predeceased in death by her husband, Paul Lloyd, Jr. (“Rusty”) and is survived by her Daughter and Son-in-Law, Aislinn and James Smith, III. She is also survived by her Sister and Brother-in-Law, Nancy and Mike Wurm, Sister-in-law, Bobbi McClay, Brother-in-law, Mike Lloyd and many nieces and nephews. She is also survived by her “adopted son," Ken Keller and his wife Rachel.

She was much loved by many friends including the Beta Sigma Phi and countless social media friends. Ann was very involved in many charity activities and made many non-relatives a part of her extended family. She will be greatly missed by all who knew her.

A Memorial Service will take place at Lynch and Sons, Milford on Saturday, November 16, 2019 at 2:00PM. Friends and family may gather beginning at 1:00PM.

Memorial contributions are encouraged in her name to the Karmanos Cancer Institute and Lighthouse of Oakland County.
