Tina Lockard


BYRON — Tina Marie (Catron) Lockard, 58, passed away peacefully at her home on Friday, Oct. 2, 2020, surrounded by her children and husband of 31 years.
Tina was the daughter of the late Rufus and Helen (Richardson) Catron and the youngest of the seven children. In 1989 she married the love of her life, Michael Lockard.
Tina was 18 when she began working at Rochelle Pharmacy. She was passionate about helping others, especially her customers. This year Tina won Illinois Pharmacy Technician of the Year, with over 90 letters of recommendation from customers and co-workers.
She loved traveling, boating, spending the day at the sandbar, and spending time at their Florida home, and cooking (from the heart) for her family and friends.
She was preceded in death by her parents; and her brothers, Lohman Catron and Richard Catron.
She is survived by her husband, Michael, and children, Eric (Jamie) Herrmann and Boone Lockard (Megan Carbon); one grandchild Colton Herrmann; furry-baby Brynley; father in-law “Dad” Charles (Connie) Lockard; mother in-law Dorothy Lockard; her sisters, Sheryl Gammon, Peggy Jones and Sheila Catron; her brother, Edward Catron; brother in-laws, Doug (Heidi) Lockard and Kent Harrison; sister in-law, Michelle Lockard; and numerous nieces and nephews.
A private family ceremony will be held on Monday, her ashes will be spread at “Her Happy Place,” a little island at Clearwater Beach, Florida.
Those who knew Tina know that she hated being fussed over and would rather give than receive. In lieu of funeral services, and to honor Tina’s character, we ask that all who wish to participate make donations to Serenity Hospice 1658 S. Illinois Route 2 Oregon, IL 61061
Tina’s Facebook page will remain open and all are welcome to post memories and final words to her there.
