LOVETT, Nettie

LOVETT, Nettie
Nettie Lovett was born April 19, 1916 near Grand,
Ellis County, Oklahoma
 as the youngest child of Frank and Orpha (Bauer) Howard.
Nettie started 
her trip to Heaven on June 14, 2017 after having celebrated her
101st birthday
 with family and friends in April. 

She attended Pinkston Grade School and Arnett High School. On 
January 21, 1936, Nettie and Jess Lovett were married in Woodward
, Oklahoma. To
this union, 3 sons were born, Frank, Tom and Terry. 
She was a devoted wife of
66 years until Jess passed away in 2002. 
Nettie and Jess both grew up on farms
and ranches and began their
 own careers of farming and ranching in 1937. They
worked side by 
side on their farm northeast of Roll, Oklahoma, farming and
taking care
 of their home and family. In 1968 they moved to Cheyenne, Oklahoma 
to make their home. She remained there until 2012 when she moved to 
City. She and Jess grew large vegetable gardens nearly every
 year. They enjoyed
traveling on long automobile trips and playing games
 like bridge, pitch and
dominoes with their friends. She was an avid game
 player whether it was Pitch,
Bridge, 42 or dominoes. She was very 
competitive and did not like to lose.
Nettie had a variety of other interests
 including baking, canning, dancing,
cultivating roses and other beautiful 
plants in their yard and entertaining
family and friends. One of her most 
enjoyable “loves”, especially to
her family and friends, was the culinary arts.
 Her talent in the kitchen left a
legacy of memories for her family as well
 as an enormous collection of recipes
and cookbooks. Another cherished
 legacy are the beautiful quilts she handmade
for each of her sons and 
grandchildren. Over the years, Nettie attended several
rural churches
 and, in Cheyenne, she attended the United Methodist Church and
 Church of Christ. Wherever she went, she was known for her feisty, yet 
sense of humor. She will be remembered by all who knew her and 
will be truly
missed. She made such an impact on the lives of her
 grandchildren and great

In addition to her husband, she was preceded in death by her
and 14 brothers and sisters.
