Nicki Marie Lloyd, passed away on June 11, 2014 in Daytona Beach, Florida. Nicki was born September 21, 1932 in Elkins, West Virginia, to Curt and Eva Golden. She grew up in rural West Vir
ginia with a love of music fostered by her father, who could always be heard singing aloud as he made his way home from work. As a young adult, Nicki moved to Washington, D.C., where she worked as a fingerprint analyst for the FBI, gaining special recognition by J. Edgar Hoover for her work. Soon after receiving the award, she gave in to her love of music and began a career as a country music singer. Her talent won her a place on the stage at The Grand Ole' Opry in Nashville, Tennessee, where she recorded with Mel Tillis and the other great country music stars of the 60's and 70's. She was known as the "Golden Girl of Country Music". Nicki sang for the USO but the highlight of her career was performing at the White House for President Lyndon B. Johnson. Musical touring led her to Daytona Beach, where she entertained with Tommy Brown and the Nashville Mustangs at the Castaways Beach Lodge. It was in Daytona Beach that she met her soul mate William "Bill" Lloyd. Nicki and Bill were married at the Central Baptist Church by Hal Marchman in 1975 and shared a full life together, boating, fishing, entertaining, traveling, tail-gating and most of all enjoying Florida Gator Football. She loved flowers, the "Majestic Lions", and when she had time, gardening. Nicki is survived by Bill; her son Gerald W. Newland (Ruth); her stepchildren, William Lloyd, Jr. (Laura), Margaret Bartlett (Todd), Merridy Chasmar (Donald), Thomas Lloyd, Michael Lloyd and Catherine Byars (Joey); her devoted sisters, Edith Hosoflook, Ruth Scott and Dolly Coleman; 12 grandchildren and a host of other family members and friends who will miss her dearly. Nicki is predeceased by her sons, Michael Newland and Mark Newland. The family will receive guests from 9:30 A.M.-10:00 A.M. with a celebration of Nicki's life to follow at 10:00 A.M., Tuesday, June 17, 2014 at the Central Baptist Church located at 152 Fairview Avenue, Daytona Beach, Florida.
