Lovie Lee Anderson
Strength and honour are her clothing; and she shall rejoice in time to come. She openenth her mouth with wisdom; and in her tongue is the law of kindness. She looketh well to the ways of her household, and eateth not the bread of idleness. Her children arise up, and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praiseth her.
Lovie Lee Anderson 73, born July 24, 1949 to John and Estella Toliver in Duncan, Mississippi. She transitioned from this life into her heavenly home on Tuesday, November 22, 2022.
Lovie accepted Christ as her Lord and Savior at an early age. She was a member of Community Lutheran Church in Little Rock, Arkansas. Reverend Randall Lewis served as her pastor.
Lovie served as church nutritionist and to her community. She worked at Pulaski County Special School District in Transportation until retirement where she was loved and respected by all who met her. She went above and beyond her abilities to help those in need. Whenever you called her, she was there to impart a word of encouragement or whatever your needs were, she would find a way to help. She was always generous and loving which is why her name is so fitting. She is a true “Queen” and Proverbs 31 Woman.
Lovie enjoyed her family to the fullest, especially her grand “blessings” that came along the way. She loved preparing delicious meals for her family and friends. She enjoyed family gatherings, especially Family Reunions that reunited the oldest family members to the youngest, she was big on making sure everyone knew each other along with her sisters Bettye Strickland (Eugene) and Mery Gibson (Luster).
Lovie’s favorite phrase is “DID YOU WASH YOUR HANDS” before every meal and she did not care if you were Barack or Michelle Obama, your hands had better be washed before you ate. I mention the former President and his wife because she loved them so much and for the first time got to see in her life-time history being made. Lovie loved the sound of music. She had a few favorites, my brother Bud (Toney) insist upon “The end of the Rainbow” by McKinley Mitchell, “I kinda miss you” a song that Aunt Terry Rogers and I would tease her about often because she kept repeating that 45 over and over again; a love song to Dad, but the one I know Mom loved was the song in a popular Movie called “Soul Food” and that song was “A Song For Mama” by Boys to Men. Lovie loved this song because as she watched the movie and listened to the song, I knew she was thinking of her mother as well (Estella Mae Toliver).
