Mrs. Lovie Thompson, affectionately known as Daughtie, died on Sunday, November 17, 2013 at NC Memorial Hospital of Chapel Hill. For the previous three years she had resided at Twin Rivers in Pittsboro. Lovie was 94 years old. We would like to give a special thanks to Debbie Morris, LaDonna Moody, Pat Ellis, Karen Davis, and Katie Hudson who so lovingly cared for Lovie the past year and a half. We would like to extend our gratitude to the entire staff of Twin Rivers for all the kindness and love they gave Lovie the past three years.
Lovie is survived by her nephew Richard Bradley and his wife Lee of Pittsboro, their daughter Rebecca, and son-in-law Stephen of Apex. She had many nieces including Joy Anderson and her husband Walt and daughter Scarlet of Rocky Mount and Cindy of Hawaii, Marie Zooda Harrell of Williamsburg, Va., Dinah Pitts of Toano, Va., Faye Boyd of Timberlake and her daughter Kim of Rougemont, Sheila Moose and her husband Ed of Kernersville and daughter Sherri of Rocky Mount, and Gladys Flemming and Wyoming Irving both from Leggett, North Carolina.
Anyone who knew Lovie knew how she loved gardening. At ninety years old, you could have found her many days out in her garden chopping weeds. Her other passions were her church Williams Primitive Baptist Church, her family, sewing which was also her occupation, quilting, and visiting with friends. Lovie was treasurer of her beloved Primitive Baptist Church for approximately 60 years.
