Margaret Jane Wright Love
Mrs. Love died on Feb. 25, 2014. She was affectionately called “Jane” by her friends and family. Mrs. Love was born on July 16, 1922 in Natchitoches to Dugan Douglas Davis and Marvin Alfred Wright. She never met a stranger, brought joy and her wit to all who knew and loved her, and was a gift. She will be greatly missed.
Mrs. Love requested that her body be cremated. A memorial visitation will be held at 1 p.m. on Friday, Feb. 28, 2014, at First Presbyterian Church in Crowley, followed by a Celebration of Life at 2 p.m. She will be buried alongside her husband in Reed Cemetery just outside of Oberlin.
Mrs. Love graduated from Welsh High School in 1939. She was a Pharmacist Mate 3rd Class in the Navy during WWII. She often said she “fought the battle of Memphis, Tennessee” (which was one of the bases where she was stationed). She was also stationed at Fredrick, Md., involved in biological warfare, and Washington D.C., where she never forgot the beautiful cherry blossoms on the Potomac. After her service in the Navy, she graduated from SLI (now ULL) with a B.S. degree in business.
She was married to George Wayne Love for 38 years. They moved to Crowley in 1955. She was co-owner of Love’s Studio & Gifts in Crowley for over 20 years until the late 1970s. Mrs. Love was in The Southwest Louisiana War Veteran’s Home at the time of her death. They were very caring, compassionate, and helpful to the family, and took excellent care of her during her short stay.
In her earlier years, Mrs. Love enjoyed working outside in her flower bed, going fishing, playing family games like cards and dominoes, and was an avid reader. She attended church regularly. She grew up in the First Christian Church (Disciples of Christ), was an active member of The Christian Women’s Fellowship, served as an elder, and was on the board of directors. At the time of her death, she was a member of the First Presbyterian Church (which she dearly loved) of Crowley. She was also an active member of Beta Sigma Phi Sorority (Laureate Mu Chapter). Mrs. Love was a former member of the American Legion, and contributed to the National Monument for Women in the Service in WWII.
Survivors are her children, Janice Love of Pineville, Helen (Richard Hughes) Love of Satellite Beach, Fla., Patricia (Bengt Lindell) Love of Welsh, Charles Love of Prairie Ronde, Georgette (John Richard) Love of Crowley, and Jeanette Love Skorbarcek and her husband Jerry Skorbarcek of Crowley; one sister, Birdie Radar in Cape Giraudeau, Mo.; and a sister-in-law, Bernice Mooney who resides in Oberlin. She had 10 grandchildren; 10 great-grandchildren; and a host of nieces and nephews whom she loved dearly.
