On August 15, 1995, our sweet little wife, mother, grandma, great-grandma and sister passed away into the arms of her loving Father in Heaven. Her 88 year sojourn here upon the earth so courageously completed.

Loree was born on November 17, 1906 in Provo, Utah to Alma and Birdie Van Wagenen. She attended Provo schools and upon graduation from BYU she married Mark C. Lloyd on June 7, 1933 in the Salt Lake Temple. She was an active member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, giving many years of service in various capacities in the Monument Park 9th Ward. Loree was active in the Wives of the Principals Association and various literary clubs in Salt Lake City.Mom will be best remembered for her loving spirit, her gentle and sweet appreciation of every kindness given to her, and her delightful wit, even in her most difficult hours. She loved her family, friends and her rose garden. After a long life of service to her family and friends, she will be dearly missed. She was such an example of graciously enduring to the end.

She lived just long enough to greet her fourth great-granddaughter born July 18th. Mom was preceded in death by her parents, her son, Gordon, and four brothers, Stanley, Legrand, Clifford and Harold Van Wagenen.

Loree is survived by her loving husband of 62 years, Dr. Mark C. Lloyd, two daughters and a son-in-law, Gayle DeWaal and Valerie and Thomas Anderson; four grandchildren, Devin (Angela) Anderson, Jill (Drew) Bedford, Les (Trish) DeWaal, and Mickell Anderson; and four great-grandchildren, Sadee, Lacee and Sammee Ann DeWaal, and Carter Elisabeth Bedford; two brothers: Frank (Phyllis) Van Wagenen and Dean (Belle) Van Wagenen of Provo; and one sister, Irene (Albert) Freestone of Sun City, Ariz.; also by numerous nieces and nephews.

The family wishes to express their gratitude to Martha Guzman and the Bonneville Home Center personnel who were so kind and helpful to Loree this past year.

Family will receive friends and neighbors on Friday, August 18th from 10:30-11:45 a.m. in the drawing room at Larkin Sunset Lawn, located at 2350 East 1300 South. Memorial services will follow at the same location at 12 noon under the direction of Bishop Richard Hughes.

Loree will be laid to rest in the Corridor of Memories at the mortuary following the service. In lieu of flowers the family request donations be made to Primary Children's Hospital in her behalf. Directed by Larkin Sunset Lawn Mortuary.
