She was preceded in death by her husband of 65 years, Joseph Edgar Lovvorn; grandson William Robert (Bill) Lovvorn Jr.; and her four sisters and two brothers.
She is survived by her children, William Robert (Bobby) Lovvorn of Bremen and Shirbie Lovvorn Lindsay of Bowdon and Opelika, Ala.; son-in-law Colonel Robert Lindsay of Opelika, Ala.; grandchildren, Lisa Lovvorn Horne (Wendell), Lynde Lovvorn Turner (Randy), Brandall Steven Lovvorn (Dana), Lucie Lovvorn Price (David), Vickie Harper Wood, Kathie Harper Morales (Tom), Gennifer Grizzard Costanzo (Don), Joseph Grant Grizzard (Clarissa), Alford Blake Grizzard (Janet), Paige Lindsay Sebring (David) and David Lindsay; 29 great-grandchildren; and 14 great-great-grandchildren.
Mrs. Lovvorn married her husband Joe in 1929. They lived in Carrollton for 47 years and returned to Bowdon in 1976 where she resided in the same house she was born in until her final day. For 102 years, she adored her family – keeping up with everyone until her final breath. Her recipes and exceptional cooking skills have been passed down through all generations. She exemplified a spirit of love and attributed her longevity to spending time with family members and eating three home-cooked meals a day.
