Survivors include her husband Bari Loyd; brother John Wissler; daughter Jennifer Brown and husband Rick; sons Stephen Loyd and wife Gayle, Loni Loyd and wife Angie, and Mike Loyd and wife Trish; sister-in-law Rholetta Loyd; 11 grandchildren; and two great-grandchildren.

The family wishes to thank the staff of Seton Highland Lakes Hospital of Burnet and doctors Glenn Preston and Thomas Fisher of the Cancer Care Centers of South Texas in Marble Falls.

A memorial service is 10:30 a.m. May 8 at the First Lutheran Church of Burnet, 133 Apollo Drive with the Rev. Richard Bremer officiating.
