Obituary for Lloyd W. Nisly

Lloyd Wayne NIsly of Newberg concluded his life and ministry on earth on April 30 at the age of 91. He was born to Eli Nisly and Katie Yoder in Hutchinson, Kansas on Oct. 14, 1927.
He married Viola Mae Evers on December 30, 1948 in Sheridan, Oregon. They lived in Kansas until moving to Sheridan in 1950. The couple then made their home in Yamhill County where they raised their three daughters, built a dry cleaning and laundry business and contributed countless hours of service to their church and community.
Among his many accomplishments, Lloyd was lieutenant governor for the 68th Division of Kiwanis International, treasurer of Gospel Echoes Prison Ministry Northwest, an officer of the Oregon Dry Cleaner's Association, treasurer of Yamhill County Master Gardeners and a member of Gideon's International.
Lloyd started flying after purchasing his first airplane in 1955. He earned his private pilot's license the following year and logged more than 1,880 hours--and many happy memories--in his 55 years in aviation. He was a member of the Oregon Pilot's Association.
Lloyd was known for his kindness to those who passed through his life and his big smile.
He is survived by three daughters, Connie (Van) Hunsaker of Philomath, Marguerite (Lee) Alexander of Sheridan, Kathleen (David) Peachey of Middlebury, Indiana, 13 grandchildren, 13 great grandchildren, three sisters and three brothers. He was preceded in death by his wife of 68 years, his parents, one brother, and one son-in-law.
In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to Wycliffe Bible Translators or Gospel Echoes Northwest Prison Ministry, Tangent, OR.
A private graveside service was held on May 6 at the Sheridan Mennonite Cemetery. A celebration of life will be held at 1:30 p.m. on Friday, May 10 at the Newberg Friends Church.
