Frederick Munz and Frances Rutter Munz had a lovely baby daughter, Dorothea Theresa Munz in Sacramento, CA on August 7, 1928. Dorothea, her older sister, Louise, and younger brother, Karl, were raised in Sacramento on a family farm. Dorothea married William Judd Lloyd when he returned from serving in WWII on January 1, 1945, and graduated from Sacramento High School June 1945. Together they had four children, Harold Frederick, William Judd, Jr., Carolyn Lee, and Steven Mark Lloyd.
Early married years were in Sacramento and Marysville, CA; they relocated to Reno, Nevada in 1960. The family moved to Carson City in 1964 and Dorothea remained there the next 46 years. Dorothea worked for the State of Nevada as an Executive Secretary, retiring after 25 years of service. Dorothea obtained her AA degree from WNCC in the 1970's. In 1976 Bill and Dorothea divorced. On April 7, 1984, Dorothea married Kenneth Jones and were married until Ken passed on March 8, 2008.
Dorothea was a gifted singer, singing in her church choir which in Carson City included the Presbyterian and Methodist Churches. Dorothea sang solos at various special events, which included Governor Bob Miller's Inaugural Celebration and as a member of the Carson Chamber Singers. Dorothea was on the Board of Directors for the Carson City Community Concert Association and held other posts such as membership chairman and assistant concert chairman. Dorothea was also active in the Republican Women's Club and for the Presbyterian and Methodist Churches.
Dorothea's greatest love, though, was her family which was demonstrated in everything she did. Family events were planned months in advance and Dorothea put great care and love into every detail. Dorothea had eight grandchildren and seven great grandchildren from her marriage to Bill Lloyd and when she married Ken Jones, acquired an additional four children, nine grandchildren and four great grandchildren who she greatly enjoyed and was devoted to.
