Whitehall, New York – On Tuesday, March 2, 2021, Catherine Rose Lloyd (nee Bartholomew) of County Route 12 in Whitehall, New York, died in the Glens Falls Hospital of natural causes. She was 95 years old and a lifelong resident of Whitehall
Catherine was born on June 30, 1925, in Whitehall. She was graduated from Whitehall High School in 1942, where she met and later married her high school sweetheart David Lloyd on April 22, 1945.
Cath, as she was known by family and friends, is survived by her younger sister Mary Ellen Greco of Whitehall and her three sons James (Gail) of Locust Grove, Virginia, John (Rebecca) of Moreau, New York, and Jerald (Judy) of Queensbury, New York. She also is survived by grandchildren Karre Lloyd Jones (Doug Stokes) of Bristow, Virginia, James Lloyd, Jr. of Locust Grove, Virginia, Derek Lloyd (Melanie Knoth) of Loudonville, New York, Jaclyn (Tim) Beadnell of Altamont, New York, and Casey Lloyd (Wes Legault) of Albany, New York, as well as by five great-grandchildren and a great-great-grandchild due in June. Also surviving her are many nieces and nephews.
Cath was predeceased by her husband of 53 years, David, in 1998, her father James Leslie Bartholomew, her mother Evelyn Evangelist Bartholomew (nee Kelly), and her older brother David Bartholomew and his spouse Lorraine, brother-in-law Joseph Greco, and granddaughter Kelly Marie Lloyd.
Cath was totally involved with raising her three boys in Whitehall, and when they became school-aged she held various jobs in and near Whitehall. She worked at Bill Jackson’s, General Electric in Hudson Falls, and the businesses where she had the greatest connection with the people of Whitehall, including J.J. Newberry, Busty’s Market, and Brock’s Ward Store.
Cath and Dave were avid campers and started tenting when their boys were young, graduating to trailering as they became “empty-nesters.” They looked forward each year to their camping forays. They enjoyed visits to see their children when the grandchildren started arriving in the 1970s.
Cath was a very gifted seamstress and loved sewing for her DILs and grandchildren. After Dave passed, Cath and Mary Ellen became very active in the Whitehall Senior Citizen Organization.
