OBITUARY

Lois Joan Floyd

June 28, 1934January 25, 2021

Lois “Joan” Floyd, 86, was born in Houston, Texas on June 28, 1934 to Veva Beatrice and George Edward Lilley and died on January 25, 2021. She was the most amazing Daughter, Sister, Wife, Mother, Grandmother and Great Grandmother. We, her children, were truly blessed to have been raised by our parents. Their love story was one for the ages and the foundation we were honored to grow up in.

She was predeceased by her parents, Veva and George Edward Lilley, her husband, Thomas Monroe Floyd, her Sister, Carolyn Mann, her Granddaughter, Shawnna Rene’ Popham and her Great-Nephew, Trip Wostal. She is survived by her 5 Sisters, Marilyn Evans, Elizabeth Patterson, Priscilla Tyrone, Barbara Hausman and Alice Ann Lawson, her 1 Brother, George Lilley Jr., her four children and spouses, Kathy Abbott, Thomas Monroe Floyd Jr and Joy Floyd, Nancy Floyd and Greg Floyd and Linda Floyd, 6 Grandchildren and 9 Great-Grandchildren.

She lived a remarkable life being part of a wonderful large and loving family. She loved being a part of the “Military family” as the wife of a Pilot/Officer in the United States Air Force. She traveled the world with our Dad and made lifelong friends along the way. She always said they were some of the best years of her life. She is now with her “Tom” and they are together again in the glorious love of God in heaven. We will miss her everyday of our lives and until we meet again her family’s only wish is that she rest in loving peace with our Father.

Mrs.Floyd,
I love you. You were so helpful and kind when my Brad passed away. You knew the pain that I was feeling. A pain that never goes away. We also had so many fun lunches, dinners, talks, and shopping trips. We had so much fun at Hallmark conventions, shops, and after-Christmas shopping trips.
You helped me understand my mom’s dementia. When I cried you were there. I miss you so much. I know your family is devastated. Thank you to your wonderful Nancy and Kathy for sharing you with me. Thank you for all the love. Love, Sue

As a child, I always ducked away from Aunt Joan. She seemed so proper and a bit scary, honestly. But she always knew about the goings-on in our family, hugged us and asked us questions about school and family. Momma looked forward to her cards, phone calls, and the Christmas ornaments she received every year. And the advice was always welcome. We love her and will miss Aunt Joan dearly.

I was unable to attend today but was able to live stream. It was almost like being there hearing all the familiar voices of aunts, sisters, brothers, cousins. Aunt Joan was a blessing to our huge wonderful loving family. She will be missed so much by all of us. Bless you and your love for our family Aunt Joan.

I met Joan through Nancy many years ago when Nancy was working in Savannah, Ga. and have become life long friends.

Over the years I have visited Nancy in her several residence locations and Joan was living with her. On one occasion when I was visiting Nancy and Joan in Durango, Co. I had volunteered to scan the family slides to the computer to help preserve them. These slides were made by Nancy's Dad over the growing up years which was done in numerous locations in the US and Germany. I so enjoyed the project because Joan was there to tell me the stories surrounding the photos. It was great fun to learn so much about my friends during their early days and see those few photos every family probably has which the kids hope no one ever sees.

I'm so sorry Joan has passed and I will miss visiting with her during future visits with Nancy. My condolences to the family and the large extended family.

Love to all,
Millie White

I recently learned through my genealogy research that Joan and her siblings are my 4th cousins on my father's side of the family as part of my "Lilley" line. Although I never met Joan, I am sorry to hear of her passing and offer my condolences to all of her family members and friends. May she rest in peace.

My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.
My mother Dorothy is Joan's cousin she had lots of fun stories about her and Joan growing up. I loved her stories. Joan was such a sweet person she will be missed.

Psalms 147:3 He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds.

Sincerely,

Aunt Joan was such a sweet soul! She loved her family so much. I am so glad that we got to see her at Nana’s service. When my husband and I introduced our baby girl to Aunt Joan, Piper reached for her and gave her a big kiss. Aunt Joan will be missed and remembered fondly. We loved her dearly.
