Laura Lloyd, mother of 6, killed as husband backs out of driveway
Onoway Elementary School secretary grieved by students, parents and staff
A mother of six children, including 11-month-old twins, was struck and killed by a trailer attached to a pick-up truck driven by her husband.
The couple’s children, ranging in age from less than a year to 12, were inside the home at the time.
Lloyd was loving, caring, fun-loving and spirited, said Lynn Shabada, principal of Onoway Elementary School where Lloyd worked as a secretary.
"She loved children and family was very important to her."
She was “just a wonderful, wonderful woman,” Shabada said.
Lloyd was welcoming with students and parents and the school is devastated, she said.
Three of Lloyd’s children attend the school.
Additional staff, including grief counsellors, were brought in to the school Wednesday and Thursday to help students and staff cope, Shabada said.
RCMP continue to investigate and expect the collision analysis to take several weeks.
The couple’s children are staying with family members.
Alberta Beach is about 70 kilometres west of Edmonton.
