Melvina Loyd Obituary
Melvina Cora Loyd

Melvina Cora Loyd, 93, passed away April 26, 2015 in Torrance, California. She joined in death Roy, her husband of 48 years, who passed October, 1992, and her identical twin Clara Elvina (Joseph, deceased) Fincher of Albuquerque, New Mexico, who passed February 9, 2015.
Melvina retired from nursing after 22 years at Harbor General Hospital to join Roy and Gary in building their business, Melroy Company, and their retirement home in Ranchita.
After they sold the business Mel and Roy traveled the country in their RV, visiting friends and relatives and satisfying their constant curiosity. Melvina created beautiful stained glass treasures, enjoying the peace and quiet of Ranchita with her son, Gary, who was her caring companion, after Roy's death, and their dog Toto, as well as involvement in the local volunteer fire department. She is survived by her son Gary Loyd, Ranchita, her daughter, Shirley LaCanfora, Torrance, her granddaughter Angel LaCanfora, nieces and nephews and friends.
She will be deeply missed for all that she created and was.
We would like to give special thanks to Manor Hospice for providing comfort home care. Please sign the guestbook at www.dailybreeze.com/obits
