Lloyd and Kathleen McSheehy
Lloyd and Kathleen McSheehy, husband and wife, eternally together
Holiday plans were abruptly interrupted by an unfortunate car accident that claimed the lives of both Lloyd and Kathleen McSheehy on Thanksgiving Day. Survived by their children, Theresa Hayes (Georgia), Beverly Collins (South Dakota), John McSheehy (Florida), Tim Miller (Florida), Kimberly Tauch (Texas), Collin McSheehy (Texas) and James Tritten (North Carolina), Lloyd and Kathleen, through their blended families, were blessed with 12 grandchildren and 23 great grandchildren.
Faithful Christians and Patriots through and through, Lloyd and Kathleen served their country and their community. Most notably, Lloyd’s career was highlighted by his 23 years of service in the United States Marine Corps, where he achieved the rank of Master Sargent. Kathleen’s dedication to education was never more rewarding to her than when she was in the classroom. It was here that she shared her gift of empowering others to be the best at everything they do. Together, they were quite the pair. Memorial Services will be held at 2 p.m. on Sunday, Dec. 3 at the First Baptist Church of Van Alstyne, TX Burial services will follow on Monday, Dec. 4 at the Dallas Fort Worth National Cemetery at 1 p.m.
