Dorothy Lovell Obituary

 

Dorothy Lee Lovell joined her eternal companion on February 13, 2024. A happy, sweet reunion right before Valentines Day!

Dorothy was born at home in Neosho, Newton, Missouri on August 11, 1933 - the youngest daughter of William Henry and Mae (Turner) Church.

Dorothy moved to Roy, Utah in 1950 to live with Laura, her sister. She graduated in 1951 from Weber High School and attended Weber State University and Ogden Business College.

She married Donald Glenn Pollard in the Salt Lake Temple on December 26, 1951. Seven children were born to this union. They were later divorced. Dorothy married Monan Anderson Lovell on September 12, 1974 in Elko, Nevada. Their marriage was later solemnized in the Ogden Temple on December 13, 1997.

Monan and Dorothy combined their families and bought a home in Clinton, Utah in 1976. Dorothy and Monan were inseparable. They were proud members of their Foxy Trotters Dance Group and along with other couples entertained at church socials, retirement homes, street festivals and schools.

They built a cabin in 1975 in Sunridge near Huntsville. Many happy memories were made at their cabin. It was always a place of laughter, fun, children, grandchildren and friends. Everyone was always welcome. Dorothy was a gracious hostess and great cook!. She and Monan had many friends. She always had a sweet smile and could make conversation with anyone.

Dorothy and Monan were active members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. While living in Pahrump Nevada, they loved serving as ordinance workers in the Las Vegas Temple. As Senior missionaries, Dorothy and Monan served an 18 month LDS mission in the Denver South Mission. They made many wonderful friends while in Denver – both young missionaries and old!

Dorothy and Monan loved to travel. When they retired, Monan invested his retirement in a motorhome and away they went, travelling all over the United States. They flew to Europe, Hawaii, Canada and Mexico.

Dorothy loved being with her family. She loved to play games and was always a challenging competitor. She could tell jokes with the best of them! In her younger years Dorothy played basketball and loved participating in most sports.

Dorothy was preceded in death by her parents, husband, 7 sisters, 6 brothers, a stepson and a son-in-law.
