Surviving are her husband, George E. 'Tuggie' Lovejoy; son and daughter-in-law, Charles and Tammy Lovejoy of Blount; grandchildren, Bria O'Brien and Luke Lovejoy; and great-grandson, Callan O'Brien.

The family would like to express their gratitude for love for the care Lou received at the Marmet Health Care Center.
