Mae Elizabeth Mayo Lovelace
Mae Elizabeth Mayo Lovelace more commonly known as “Beth”, age 76, passed away peacefully at her Blytheville residence on Sept. 28, 2020, surrounded by her beloved husband, sons and daughters-in-law. During her preceding illness she was cared for faithfully and tenderly by her husband of 56 years, Larry Dean Lovelace, also of the home.
Mae Elizabeth Mayo was born in Parma, Mo., to the late Lewis Earl Mayo and Mildred Sarah Lawrence. Mae lived her life for her family and was a wonderful mother, mother-in-law and grandmother. She loved to work outside in her flower beds and her favorite time of year was Christmas when all her family would gather together. Her grandchildren will take with them many wonderful memories of time spent at “Mema’s” house.
Beth was preceded in death by two brothers, Jerry James Mayo and Lewis Earl Mayo of Blytheville; one sister, Norma Jean Mayo DeGise, of Peoria, Ill.; and two grandchildren, Larry Dean Lovelace III and Emily Pauline Lovelace, of Blytheville.
Beth is survived by her husband, Larry D. Lovelace of Blytheville; sons, Larry D. Lovelace II and wife, Sevin, of Evansville, Ind., Alan Lovelace and wife, Sheila, of Stillwater, Okla.; four grandchildren, Sabrina Bergman and husband, Christopher, of Clearwater, Fla., Daniel, Nathan and Elizabeth Lovelace of Stillwater, Okla.; one brother, Terry Mayo, of Houston, Texas; as well as many nephews and nieces.
A celebration of her life will occur at the family residence on Friday, Oct. 2, with family and friends. In lieu of flowers the family has asked that memorial donations be made to Trinity Baptist Church, Blytheville. Condolences may be expressed to the family at www.cobbfuneralhome.com.
