Remembering Emma Lloyd: She was loved by all she knew
She grew up in hard times, orphaned at a very young age, she was taken in by another good family, Lorin and Annie Hadley. She married and raised three kids, earning income as postmistress at Cundiff and supplementing that with a garden every year. She was a faithful member of Melson Ridge Separate Baptist Church and attended as long as her health would allow. Click on headline for storywith photo
For obituary: Emma Lloyd, Adair County, KY (1926-2012)
By Cynthia Melson
Emma Wright Lloyd was a very faithful and loving woman. She was loved by not only her family but by everyone who knew her. She was a blessing in so many ways.
She grew up in hard times. She lost her parents at a very young age and was taken in by another family, Lorin and Annie Hadley.
Emma was married to Osby Lloyd and raised three children: Larry, Beverly and Glenda. She worked very hard taking care of her family.
She raised a garden every year she could and worked as the Postmistress for 37 1/2 years.
She started in what was one of the oldest Adair County post offices in southeastern Adair County. The post office was originally called Cape but was changed to Cundiff when the late R.C. Cundiff was postmaster for many years.
She started at the age of 26 and continued working there for 37 1/2 years when the doors closed for the last time on Friday, June 29, 1990, and the post office was closed.
Emma was very faithful in attending church at the Melson Ridge Separate Baptist church until her health wouldn't allow it anymore.
Even later when she lived at Summit Manor nursing home, she loved hearing the gospel and the music from the visiting churches in the community. God blessed all of us for several years with our time with her and we feel that she has now received her blessings from the Lord Jesus where she has gone home to stay. - Cynthia Melson
