On ,January 22, 2021, Jean Ann Eller-Lloyd left us to join her Heavenly Father in her eternal home. Jean leaves behind to honor her memory, four loving children and their spouses: Heidi Lacy (Paul), Emily Murray (Brian), Lisa Davison (Mark) and James B. Eller, II (Kimmy), plus eight adoring grandchildren (Jonathan, Nicholas and Parker Davison, Alexandra M. Farrell, Jack and Leah Murray, Paul Lacy and Joscelyn Eller). Additionally, Ms. Eller-Lloyd will be remembered by one brother, Col. Luther R. Lloyd (Retired) and wife (Jeanne), one sister, Mary Margeret Lloyd, and numerous nephews and nieces. Jean was preceded in death by her beloved parents Kenneth M. Lloyd and Thelma Peck Lloyd, her brother Dr. Kenneth M. Lloyd and her former husband, Cdr. James B. Eller (Retired). Jean loved her home and her family and said that her greatest accomplishment as a woman and mother was having contributed four children with loving families to this world. Mom was a mother to many and throughout her life impacted others through her loving nature. As we've gone through the past few months we’ve heard over and over from people that she felt like a mom to them, who listened and loved them like they were one of her own. Born and raised in Youngstown, Ohio, Jean was a Navy wife and moved with her family to numerous locations including San Diego, CA, Alexandria, VA, Madrid, Spain, Philadelphia, PA and Newport, RI. During her career, Jean worked in the real estate and moving industries, which eventually led to her favorite job as a Design Consultant at the North Carolina Company in Richmond, VA. In 1997, Jean moved to her beloved Beaufort, NC which she regarded as her “happy place” and eventually became known as the “matriarch of Sunshine Court”. Jean leaves behind many special cherished friends from her neighborhood and her various volunteer activities in Beaufort, including the NC Maritime Museum and the Beaufort Historic Site. Funeral arrangements will be private. In lieu of flowers please send donations to: NC Maritime Museum, Beaufort, NC or JDRF (Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation).
