In memory of
Claudine Schwetke Loyd
LOYD, Claudine Schwetke 8/17/1946 2/13/2021 Claudine Schwetke Loyd, age 74, passed peacefully in her home on February 13, 2021, following a brief battle with cancer. A member of Coker United Methodist Church, she was also a member of the bell choir at University Methodist Church. Claudine was born in Oklahoma City, OK., on August 17, 1946, the only child of Charles and Lilie Mae Schwetke. She lived in the Dallas area throughout most of her youth, attending Bryan Adams High School as a member of the class of 1964. She and her parents were members of White Rock United Methodist Church, where Claudine was active in the Methodist Youth Fellowship. Following high school graduation, Claudine attended the University of Texas for two years and then transferred to Oklahoma City University, where she graduated with a degree in Political Science. Claudine was married to Thomas Loyd, whom she had known since high school. During the marriage, due to Thomas Loyd's Air Force career, they lived in many places overseas, including Germany and the Middle East. This was the beginning of Claudine's lifelong love of travel. Her later international travel included Spain and Russia, two of her favorites among many places, as well as a fairly complete coverage of the United States. A longtime baseball fan, Claudine once set out by herself upon a tour of all the baseball stadiums in the United States. Claudine's primary profession was as a Paralegal. However, as a person with many varied interests, she had other occupations. One was as a Docent in a history museum. Another was as a Tour Guide, in which she provided tourists with a history of San Antonio itself. Yet another was as a provider of closed-captioning for a television station. Claudine's varied interests last led her to the game of bridge, where she started taking lessons approximately four years ago. She quickly got bitten by the "bridge bug" and was fascinated with all the intricacies of the game. Claudine is perhaps best remembered among her many friends for her irrepressible sense of humor. She was always smiling and eager to laugh as she traded humorous quips with whoever she encountered. That included strangers, with whom she was easily able to establish a camaraderie because of her happy and friendly way with all people. Claudine Loyd will be missed by all who knew her.
