Obituary for LOVELETT TOMASSO HOLLAND REID

Lovelett Tomasso Holland Reid , was transitioned from this life peacefully on Thursday, July 21, 2016 at the residence of her grandson Quintin Jonathan, Sr.(Pamela), in Huntingtown, Maryland.

God blessed her to live a long life of 98 years, 9 months and 4 days.

Lovelett was born October 17, 1917 to the late Marion and Mabel Scott Holland. She was the third of twelve children, the first daughter, referred to as “Sis”.

She attended the Industrial School which is the current location of Safe Harbor in Prince Frederick, Maryland.

As a youth, Lovelett worshipped at Horse Creek Church which is now known as Cooper’s United Methodist Church.

She was united in holy matrimony to the late Ridgley Andrew Reid on March 17, 1936 and from this union they were blessed with one daughter Mabel Eugenia. During the mid 1940’s she became a member of Plum Point Church.

Lovelett has worn many hats, serving and helping friends and church families. She served as a Sunday School Supt., Pres. of the Sr. Choir, Pres. of The Willing Workers Club, Communion Steward from 1970 until 2010, Pres. of the building & Kitchen Committees, worked with the Trustees to build the Church hall and helped to raise funds to drill a well in order to have water in the Church hall.

Lovelett initiated the “Brooks Day Rally” in the early fifties with the assistance of the late Bro. Vanderbilt Brooks and Bro. & Sis. Pinkney Sewell and others. She knew that her ultimate help and strength always came from the Lord.

Lovelett was active in the church until the late seventies when her husband became ill and it was necessary for her to devote the major portion of her time caring for him.
Lovelett did domestic work, assisted her husband on the farm, worked as a nurse-aide at nights on weekends and was also a school bus driver for twenty six years. She was a member of the Senior Companion program for twenty-four years.
Lovelett enjoyed working with arts and crafts. Solitaire was her favorite game. She enjoyed watching Wheel of Fortune and Jeopardy. She always looked forward to going with her daughter and son-in law to various activities and place of interest.

Her favorite hymn was “Just a Closer Walk with Thee”, and the twenty-third Psalm was her favorite scripture.

Lovelett leaves to cherish her memory a devoted daughter Mabel “Jean” Conway, a faithful son-in-law Rev. Robert L. Conway; two grandsons Quintin Jonathan, Sr. (Pamela) and Kirk Aris (Carly); three great grandchildren, Quintin Jonathan, Jr. (Virginia), Joy Evelyn and Grace Marie Conway; one brother-in-law, Bishop Robert Watts, a host of nephews, nieces, cousins, other relatives and friends; Special neighbors & friends, Charlotte & James Rank, a special niece Shelby Booth and other relatives who planned and sponsored Lovelett’s 98th birthday celebration.
