Hattie Hiner Lovegrove, 90, died May 29 at Pendleton Manor in Franklin, WV. Hattie was born on February 21, 1928, in Bolar, VA and was the daughter of the late Forest Taylor and Mary Susan (Waggy) Hiner. She was the wife of George E. Lovegrove, with whom she shared 60 years of marriage prior to his death in 2007. Hattie and George lived for 50 years in Franklin, WV where they raised their three children.
Hattie was known to all by her generous heart and beautiful smile. Her faith was strong, and she enjoyed nothing more than time with her family. She will be dearly missed, but she leaves us all with wonderful memories and a true example of a loving wife, mother, sister, grandmother, and great-grandmother.
