She was born April 24, 1930, in Jacksonville, Fla., to Frank Robert Williams and Effie Osteen Williams. She and Noel Nolan Lloyd were married in Jacksonville, Fla.

The family moved to Helena in 1972 where she worked as a contractor house painter with her husband and brother-in-law for several years.
