Mildred Louise Lovegrove


After 97 years of living, Mildred Louise Lovegrove, Jonesborough, was reunited with her family in heaven on Monday, June 24, 2019 at Four Oaks Healthcare Center.

Her wonderful talent as a cook and baker was enjoyed by many. She enjoyed reading her Bible daily. Her door was always open for family and friends.

I wanted say how sorry I am for y’alls loss. I always knew her as Aunt Mildred, she had a smile that would light up a room. Loved seeing her at the beauty shop when Dickie would bring her there and then off to the grocery store. It showed what a close family they had. Heaven has gotten a beautiful Angle!

My sympathy to the family on the passing of Miss Mildred. She lived with and cared for my mother, Kate Booth, for quite sometime before mom passed away. Mildred was like family - we all dearly loved her. She had a loving and caring heart. She will be missed.
