Katherine (Kitty) was born September 13, 1930 in Folkston, GA to the late Andrew Bryant Crews and Kate Simmons Crews. She lived over 20 years in St. Marys, where she was a member of Westside Baptist Church and served as a Southern Baptist Associate Director of Nurseries. In the early 1980s she returned to Folkston with her husband upon his retirement and was a member of First Baptist Church.
Along with her parents, she was preceded in death by: her beloved husband Lewis W. Lloyd, to whom she was married for 73 years, her son-in-law Gates Elmore, her brothers Walter Britton Crews and Ronald Jackson Lloyd, and her sisters Ethel Nettles and Betty Renshaw.

Katherine was a devoted wife, mother, daughter, grandmother and sister. She was a faithful Christian serving her church in many ways. She especially loved serving in the nursery and children’s Sunday School. Katherine loved cooking especially for friends and her large family who loved her delicious meals and famous deserts. An avid cake baker, she started a small cottage business selling homemade beautifully decorated cakes for birthdays and other celebrations. Many a bride insisted on a wedding cake baked by Miss Kitty. An avid gardener with her husband, she loved sharing her bounty with family and friends. She especially took pride in her beautiful roses. She was thrilled with her farm in Folkston raising Nubian goats, long hair rabbits, chickens and other farm animals. No matter what, she always made time to go camping with her family and give them love and support during her life. She always found time for cuddling and nurturing her babies. Miss Kitty will be missed by all who knew her.
