Lovina Marie Jeffreys (Knipe) went home to be with the Lord on Saturday July 19 2014, after a long courageous struggle with Alzheimer's. Lovina was born on April 23, 1929 to W.R. & Sendy Knipe. She joined a large family with 4 brothers and 2 sisters who she loved deeply. On June 9, 1947 she married the love of her life Connie Jeffreys Jr. Together they were blessed with 3 children, Lonnie, Wayne and Bonnie. They moved their family from Durant Oklahoma to Irving Texas in 1962.

Lovina was always a wonderful caregiver and devoted her life to her children and church. She worked in child care so she could pass her love on to a countless number of children who knew her simply as MeeMaw. She loved her family and enjoyed many additions throughout the years. MeeMaw loved everyone she met and never judged anyone. As a true testament to Jesus she reminded everyone she saw that Jesus loved them.

She was preceded in death by her parents, all siblings, husband and one son Lonnie. She leaves her son Wayne and daughter Bonnie of Irving, Texas who were with her vigilantly until she was taken home. She also leaves 4 granddaughters, 4 great grandsons, 2 great granddaughters and 3 great- great grandsons, and countless friends and relatives who loved her deeply and will miss her.

A gathering of friends and family will be held from 6-8:00 PM July 22, 2014 at the Holmes Coffey Murray Funeral Home in Durant, Oklahoma. A celebration of her life will be at 10:00 AM Wednesday, July 23, 2014 at the Holmes Coffey Murray Chapel with Bro. Carl Robbins and Bro. Dan Robbins officiating.
