In memory of
Carol Ann Love
BELOVED Daughter, Sister, Friend, Wife, Mother, Grandmother and Great Grandmother. BELOVED She was born in Parkersburg WV on January 11, 1945 but grew up in Waycross GA. Frail with heart problems and severe asthma as a young girl she developed a strength of will and character which became her hallmarks in later life. Smart and gregarious her energy and "joi de vive" made her more beautiful every day of her life. She didn't see it at all and that made her even more genuine. She left Waycross as soon as she could when she graduated from high school. She was unsupported and on her own but said she always knew that she had to live anywhere but there. In 1963 that wasn't a thing that was easy for a young woman with no experience in the real world. But that was the way she lived her life - see a problem, make a plan, set a goal, and get on with making life happen. She had many occupations in life and took to them all with energy and dedication. She was the cream that always rises to the top. Office manager, home builder - the job she liked the most - or sales at which she excelled. Selling event sponsorships at the Greater Anchorage Fur Rendezvous, Real Estate in Anchorage AK and Fort Walton Beach, cell phones here in Florida for what was Sprint and became Verizon. Throughout it all she saw her biggest job to be the strong center of her family. Matriarch is the word, but she was more. She was the glue, but at the same time the loving driver of our family. In her last days she would say that our family was her greatest love and the source of her greatest pride. On January 30th she left behind her loving and devastated husband of 53 years Abram Love, her son John A. Love II of Crestview FL, daughter Brandy Laws and son-in-law (who she loved as her own) Will Laws of Fort Walton Beach FL; grandchildren Abram Love III and Rachael Love of VA, Nikolas Laws and Kylie Laws of Fort Walton Beach FL, and Lauren Love of El Paso TX; great-grandchildren "The Twins" Clark and Ethan Aldridge, and Harper Smith of FL. In addition she is survived by her centenarian Aunt Grace Haythorne of Parkersburg WV, sister Joyce Screws and brother Michael Worley of Waycross GA, brother Simeon Worley and wife Joy Worley of Clinton MS, and numerous cousins. As important to her as her family were her dear friends; from her first days of college Nancy Crane of Zebulon GA, Dixie Boyd of Anchorage and Willow AK, her "work-husband" of nearly a decade Steven Dougherty of Gulf Breeze FL, that most gentle of souls Gene Jorgenson, Ginny Wright whom she treasured, and too many others to name here. Her friends were her family and her family was her life. We will be holding a Celebration of her Life at our home in Fort Walton Beach on Sunday the 10th of February, 2019 from 1 pm till 5 pm. For directions or information call or text 850-598-5297 or 850-974-5683. In the past she decided against any services and wanted only that her friends and family celebrate her life - one she lived every day to the fullest - one she left far too soon. BELOVED
