Linda H. Loyd

March 3, 1952 - October 23, 2017

Linda Loyd, 65, a resident of Williamsburg, VA, died peacefully Monday, October 23, 2017, at home in the loving presence of her family.

She was a member of Bruton Parish Episcopal Church and was also involved at St. Martin’s Episcopal and St. Stephen Lutheran churches.

Linda earned her Bachelor of Arts from Christopher Newport University and a Master of Divinity from Yale Divinity School.  Her passions included ministry to youth and college students.  She was also committed to women’s prison ministry.

Linda’s appreciation of nature began during childhood camping trips with her family in the Pacific Northwest and it continued during their travels overseas.  Linda loved music, whether singing in school musicals or church choirs.  However, her favorite was singing for her children at bedtime.  She was always deeply devoted to her family.

Linda is survived by her husband, Gary Loyd; children Kelly Loyd, Jesse (Kelly) Loyd, Jacob (Katie) Loyd and Micah Loyd; grandchildren Brody Loyd, Brynn Loyd and Bailey Loyd; mother Ladonna Hutchinson, brother Rick (Christie) Hutchinson, as well as loved nieces, nephews and extended family.

She is preceded in death by her father, Dr. John Hutchinson and her brother, Kent Hutchinson.

Her memorial service and interment of ashes will be at 2pm, Saturday, October 28, 2017, at Bruton Parish Episcopal Church in Williamsburg, VA.  A reception will immediately follow at the Custis House across the street from the church.
