Luacine Clark Sharp Lloyd (Sally, Sukey)

June 28, 1928 ~ October 4, 2020

Luacine Clark Sharp Lloyd (Sally, Sukey) 92, passed away peacefully in her lovely SLC home on October 4, 2020. Mom was born June 28, 1928, to Ivor and Marianne Savage Clark Sharp. She spent her early years in New York before her family returned home to the Avenues in Salt Lake City. Mother attended Lowell Elementary, Bryant Jr. High, East High School and then graduated from BYU majoring in Political Science. Uncle Louis H. Lloyd introduced her to his nephew Cecil, (who was also attending BYU) after Sunday meetings at the LDS 20th Ward. Sally and Cecil both took the same Greyhound bus back to Provo and had their first official date in February 1948. She and Cecil Earl Lloyd were married in the SLC Temple on November 30, 1949.

In 1952, Mother was 24 when she learned she had contracted the polio virus. That same week she learned that Cecil was being deployed to Korea and their young son, Tracy was diagnosed as legally blind. The polio illness altered her body, but her spirit was as indomitable as ever and she dedicated her entire life to rearing 7 children (6 born after polio), nurturing and cherishing her 12 grandchildren and five great grandchildren.
Sukey’s legacy is a benevolent life of service to her family, church and the community. Uppermost is the admiration her children have for her as we watched her open-hearted friendships to numerous women who needed the special love and attention she offered, and the fostering of four Native American daughters. Mother welcomed everyone into her home and her home was beautiful as she was a collector of art.

She held many positions in the Church such as RS Cultural Refinement Instructor, Stake Primary President, Den Mother, Gospel Doctrine Teacher as well as, being a faithful visiting teacher. After remarkably managing her daily tasks, somehow, she found the energy to work and volunteer outside the home as a political campaigner, LDS Hospital Ward Clerk, elementary school teacher’s aide, Literacy in Action tutor and for more than 15 years she read with the students in Jo’s classroom, while often reading, for her own enjoyment, until the early hours of the morning. She participated with her Val Norn sorority, numerous adult and children’s book clubs and study groups. Mother was a committed student in studying the doctrine of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

Dad died at home in 2010, with Tracy her oldest passing away in 1976 and her youngest daughter, Rosemary passing away in 2001. Surviving children are daughter-in-law Montie Jo Lloyd, Susan (Leonard) Black, Elizabeth (Patrick) Lynch, Jennifer (William) Wallace, Margaret Armstrong, and David (Liza) Lloyd.

Special thanks to Margaret and Jessica for their loving daily care during the last few years of Mom’s life. Private family services.



Guestbook/Condolences

I am so sorry to hear of Sally’s passing. She was such a truly amazing person. She worked with me at Whittier Elementary in my Kindergarten class. She had such a love for children. She encouraged and helped children in such a kind manner. Her love of books and reading was shared often. Such a compassionate lady and fun loving. I was so lucky to see her years later and teach her grand children and meet her wonderful daughter-in- law Jo. May your memories sustain at this difficult time. With love and sympathy, Jeanne Patterson

My condolences to your family. Sally was and still is a wonderful lady and great example. She was a good friend and helped my friend Debbie through a lot of her own trials and I know Debbie appreciated it. I can imagine the great reunion your mom and dad are having along with her son and daughter.

What a wonderful older sister Sally was to Louise and me. When we were younger we had a record player that played long playing records and dropped 12 records one after the other so that was a lot of music we would hear. Sally stacked classical music every night and it played a long time. First she loved symphonic music, and then piano and violin concertos. We learned so much classical music from Sally. She was a wonderful pianist and when she contracted polio she not have use of her arm and could not play the piano again but you did not hear a complaint out of her. When she lost two of her children at different times, , both through auto accidents not of their fault she wanted to be sure that the drivers of the cars did not blame themselves. She had a deep love of the gospel and knew if they were gone the Lord was watching over them and it was in his plan and He would care for them. What a wonderful reunion that her dear husband, son and daughter are having now along with her dear parents. She was ever generous of her home and I know my children say when they came to Salt Lake they knew they were welcome and that they could stay with her anytime. In their adulthood now they say, "Can you imagine how disruptive that must have been but we knew we could stay there and just took it for granted and most of the time she didn't know we were coming." Art was everywhere in her home. She was a true friend and good sister to me . When her polio returned in later life she took it for a matter of course even though she had such a difficult time swallowing and solid foods took a long time to get down without choking. But she didn;t complain. She was such a wonderful example to me. What a blessing it was for Louise and me to have her for a big sister.

Well Cecil and Sally are together. It's bitter sweet for us here. Our thoughts are with all of the extended Lloyd family at this time. We're fortunate to know both of your parents and have a great deal of Love and Respect for them both. We're equally fortunate to know most all of you in the Lloyd family. Sally was incredible to know. She always was positive and happy when ever we saw her at various events. I guess the statement that families can be together for ever is applicable here. Our best to you at this time. Judy & Wayne Andersen
