The daughter of Bertha and Holt Moore. Lovice was born in Eldorado on March 10th 1921. Raised in her family’s confectionary store is where Lovice found her love of Coke and ice cream, often saying she was raised on Coke and milk shakes. Growing up, she and her cousins spent many summer days camping out with their families at the Wichita Mountain Wildlife Refuge. After graduation from Eldorado High School, Lovice attended Oklahoma A&M.

She married Alger Mitchell on March 3rd 1939. Lovice took great joy in being a loving wife and mother to two amazing children, Eddie and Jo Ann. Lovice always made sure their house was open to everyone no matter the time of day. Their house was always a fun place to be with parties, games, and activities. She also loved visiting Quartz Mountain State Park where she spent time with her children’s classes as their class mother.

She was a lifelong member of the Eldorado Church of Christ where she took joy in worshiping, teaching Sunday school, and preparing countless meals for the congregation.

In later years, Lovice loved long drives revisiting the wildlife refuge, Quartz Mountain, and looking at all of the farms while telling stories of her childhood.

Lovice was an avid reader and shared her love of reading and books with others. She loved lending her books to friends, with many referring to her collection as “Lovice’s Library.” Her love of reading had an impact on her children, grandchildren, and future generations.

“Mama” was actively involved with her children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren, and great-great-grandchildren. She loved going to all of their activities and events. Her face always lit up when she was around them. She continued to go to their events until shortly before her passing.

She was a loving and giving person, full of laughter and happiness. She pursued the Lord with all her heart, loved unconditionally, spread joy and kindness, was gracious, and took care of everyone around her. She was a true matriarch of her entire community.

She was preceded in death by her parents, Bertha and Holt Moore; and husband, Alger Mitchell.
