Doris “Jean” Lloyd, age 78 of Broadus, passed away on February 28, 2017 at Holy Rosary Hospital in Miles City.
Doris “Jean” Lloyd, aka Lucky Lloyd as she was so fondly referred to by her friends at the Powder River Manor was born in Broadus MT on February 24, 1939 to Walter and Angie Mitchell. She was the last of five Mitchell siblings to arrive in this world and the last to leave and join them on their next adventure.
Growing up on a dirt floor on Cashe Creek was not easy by no means. Jeans father passed away when she was a baby and her brothers, Ray and Harry took on the task of raising their sisters, Maxine, Mary and Jean, not a small task either.
Jean attended Broadus schools until she met her cowboy, Gilbert Victor Lloyd of Miles City, MT. They welcomed their first born in Sept of 1961, James “Button” Lloyd and in August of 1971 along came Vicki Jean Lloyd.
While Jean and Gib where living and working on Tongue River, Jean attended Cosmetology School in Miles City, MT and did hair for over 30 years. They later settled back in Broadus, west of town where Jean enjoyed her bum calves and lambs, but most of all her family and friends.
Jean never knew a stranger and her years of owning and working in several of the local restaurants she also made many, many friends. Of those close friends, if her family couldn’t find Jean, they knew they should start looking for Jackie. Those two where probably up to something along with some of their side kicks, Marion, Helen or Betty and sorry for those we have missed. She had so many close and good friends.
Jeans grandkids where also a highlight of her life. When they would come to visit, you could see her light up with joy. She was known to them as Granny, and they also knew they were truly loved by their Granny.
She is survived by her son: Button (Molly) and their children Alighta, Mariah and Sierra, daughter: Vicki (Leroy) and their children, Mitchell, Pruitt, Mckoy, 5 great grandchildren and numerous nieces and nephews. She is preceded in death by her parents Walter and Angie Mitchell, Brothers: Ray and Harry Mitchell, Sisters: Maxine and Mary Mitchell.
If desired, donations may be made to the Powder River Manor, or to the charity of one’s choice.
