Rosemary D. Lloyd, a longtime resident of Cary, North Carolina, passed away peacefully in Virginia last Saturday, August 29. She was 69 years old. Rosemary, known as Rosie or Rose to close friends and family, was born into a military family and traveled the world growing up. As a child, Rosemary excelled in all academic subjects and was especially gifted at learning languages. She studied to be a teacher at the University of North Carolina Wilmington, although marriage and motherhood interceded before she was able to finish her degree. After a 30-year hiatus, Rosemary returned to UNCW to finish her education and graduated with honors as a French major. Rosemary loved animals, family, and reading, and had a kind and effusive personality that allowed her to connect immediately with strangers of all backgrounds. She worked for many years as a childcare provider, running her own business, and then as a K-5 instructor in the Loudoun County school system. Over the course of her life, Rosemary touched hundreds of young lives and was beloved by children of all ages. Rosemary is survived by her two sons, Dr. Justin Lloyd of Washington, D.C., and Mr. Adam Lloyd and husband Wesley Dills of Austin, TX; as well as her sister, Mrs. Anne Marie Munos and husband Tony Munos of Leesburg, VA; and brother, Mr. Michael Dudney and Martine Dudney of Brussels, Belgium; and finally a special kitty named Holly.
Interment occurred on Saturday, September 5 at Oleander Memorial Gardens, also in Wilmington.
