On April 10, after missing her target departure date by 9 days, everyone’s favorite Catherine gave us one final guilt trip and passed away all alone at 8AM at Trident Hospital after a brief illness. Her opinions, sarcasm, wit and sense of humor will be missed by almost all. Almost, all.
Catherine came into the world on possibly the best day possible for her to make an arrival, April 1st, 1949. She was born to James H Lloyd Jr and Catherine Doris Lloyd. She was the oldest of four with 3 brothers; Jimmy, Raymond and Tommy. Catherine graduated from Bishop England High School and tried her hand at nursing school for a bit. But instead, she chose to help her country and decided to marry her favorite sailor, Gary Pedersen, on February 17, 1978. Catherine gave birth to four good-looking kids.
Catherine loved knitting and crocheting, arts, cooking, computer games and got quite a kick out of watching her family struggle through an episode of Dr. Pol during many family dinners. She also loved to help and absolutely would if she could.
Surviving are her husband, Gary Pedersen of Goose Creek; her OLDEST daughter Margret Harmon and her husband Paul Harmon of St. Stephen; her favorite son, Richard Treat and his wife Teresa Treat of Summerville; her funniest kid Doris Treat and her boo Thomas Myers of Summerville, SC; and finally, her wildest child, Katrina Hensley and her husband George Hensley of Goose Creek, SC; ten grandchildren, Bridget, Gary, Devin, Allen, John, Ava, Sophia, Sean, Sara and Niels; two great grands, Layla and MJ; her brothers Jimmy (Blanche) and Raymond (Beth); many nieces, nephews, cousins and extended family that she also dearly loved.
Catherine was predeceased by her parents and her younger brother, Tommy Lloyd.
