1 THESSALONIANS 4:16 For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: Lovie Marie Cockerham Pruitt, of Frost TX passed away peacefully in her home, at the age of 90, on Friday May 22, 2020. Lovie was born in Frost Texas on March 24, 1930 to Sill G. & Olive May Cockerham (Holloway). She grew up in the surrounding areas having to move from place to place, sharecropping with her family picking cotton. At the age of 17 she applied for and was accepted into a special Nursing program that had just started at the Hospital in Waxahachie, where she eventually became the Head Surgical Nurse. Although she later left nursing to raise a family she eventually returned to that which she loved and continued Nursing until she retired at the age of 75. Lovie Marie’s life cannot be summed up by words, or a few paragraphs written upon paper, because she was so much more. The intricate details of her Love, & giving to others is written upon the Hearts of those who remain, where Love gives Life to her memory, in a place where she will always live. Lovie is survived by her sons, Lonnie & Dwayne Pruitt; daughter in-law, Cynthia Pruitt, 9 Grandchildren, 16 Great Grandchildren, and 6 Great Great Grandchild, as well as through the memories that are carried by other family members and friends that are left behind. She is preceded in Death by her parents, Sill and Olive May; her sisters, Lelta, Juanita, Bernice, Virginia, Estelle; her brothers, John D., James, Wallace, James Calvin, John Edgar; her husband of 52 years LaVon; son, Danny; 2 Great Grandchildren and 1 Great Great Grandchild. Visitation is scheduled for Friday, May 29 from 6:00 to 8:00 PM at Boze Mitchel McKibbin Funeral Home in Waxahachie. Memorial service is scheduled for Saturday May 30th in the chapel @ 10:30 AM followed by graveside at Bethel. In lieu of Flowers, the Family asks that you take a moment and express your Love to those who are still with you. Nobody grows old by merely living a number of years. People grow old only by deserting their ideals. You are as young as your self confidence, as old as your fear, as young as your hope, as old as your despair. In the central place of every heart there is a recording chamber, so long as it receives messages of beauty, hope, cheer and courage, you are young. When the wires are all down and your heart is covered with the sorrows of pessimism and the ice of cynicism then and only then are you grown old. Lovie Marie Pruitt .
