Candy went to be with her Lord on the morning of January 1, 2014. She passed away quietly in her sleep at home.
Candy was a multi-talented musician and church pianist in College Station, TX. She was also an interim choir director at First Baptist Church in Leland, MS. She taught youngsters to play the piano for 25 years. Her service to the Lord was unequaled to my knowledge. She saved Forest Hills Baptist Church a great embarrassment. In First Baptist Church in Starkville she was a teenagers greatest friend. Candy would talk to them all night and she traveled with them. On one of many church trips she cooked for them all the way to Whitefish, Montana and back; She deeply loved all of them and they knew it. She was WMU Director at First Baptist Church in Starkville for about 15 years and was a behind-the-scenes peacemaker. Whatever needed to be fixed she took care of it.
She will be sorely missed by her husband of 59 1/2 years, Dr. Ed Lloyd; her daughter, Elizabeth Mosley and husband Tommy; and granddaughter, Meredith Bryan and husband Scott.
Visitation for Mrs. Lloyd is scheduled for Friday, January 3, 2014 from 2:00-3:00 p.m. at First Baptist Church in Starkville, MS, with the funeral service immediately following. Dr. Chip Stevens will conduct the service. Burial will be in Oddfellows Cemetery.
