James “Jim” Lovett, age 89, entered into rest on Saturday, October 27, 2012. He was born January 5, 1923, in Nauvoo, Alabama. He died of natural causes while a resident at Hendrix Health and Rehabilitation, Double Springs, AL. He is preceded by his wife of 67 years, Carmen Faye.

He is survived by 3 children, Sandy (Mike) Blanchard, MN, Roy Lee, James Mark (Barbie); 3 grandchildren, Teri (Kent) Odland, Jason Blanchard, Jeremy (Sara) Blanchard, all of MN; 5 great-grandchildren, Brody, Amanda, Becca, Lincoln and London. He is also survived by sisters Willie Mae Humphries, Louise Frazier, Ruby Rodgers, Betty (Charles) Medlock. Preceded by sisters Agnes Bailey and Becky Medlock.

He always had a love for music. He enjoyed playing his guitar and singing songs to all the little kids he came across. He especially loved joining in on community singings, near and far. Last, but not least, he had a special place in his heart for leading the Liberty Grove congregation in their favorite songs during Sunday worship services.

Visitation will be Friday, November 2, 2012 from 10-11AM at Liberty Grove Missionary Baptist Church in Ashridge, where funeral services will be held at 11AM. Burial will follow in the adjoining cemetery. Brother Ronnie Marbutt will officiate.

In lieu of flowers, family request you make donations to Liberty Grove Missionary Baptist Church Cemetery Fund in memory of James.
