NEWPORTóDr. Debbie Lloyd, local educator and swim coach, died Wednesday, Jan. 15. She had celebrated her 56th birthday on Jan. 4.

Lloyd, a native of Huntsville, Alabama, had been diagnosed with breast cancer in 2011. The disease returned in 2013.

Lloyd, together with her family, moved to Newport in 2000 when her husband became pastor of First Baptist Church. She quickly became involved in the community, initially teaching pre-school and revitalizing the local swim program.
