Obituary for Cathleen Ann Lovellette (Colvin)

Cathleen Ann  Lovellette (Colvin)
Cathleen Ann Lovellette, beloved wife of John Lovellette. Loving mother of Sean and Erin Lovellette. Devoted mother-in-law of Cheyanne Lovellette. Dear sister of Richard Colvin (Susan) and John Colvin (Ashley). Dear sister-in-law of Mary (Leon) Miller, Kathleen (Richard) Essenpreis, Nancy Muller, Janet (Mike) Ligibel, and James (Jaemi) Lovellette, and the late Patricia Peters, and the late Michael Lovellette(Susan). Dear friend to Carla (Jon) Keatley and family. Dear friend to Gayle Kummerfeldt. Cathy is also survived by many loving nieces, nephews, and cousins.

Gratitude, kindness, and determination formed the basis for Cathy Lovellette’s life. Small in stature but large in personality, Cathy possessed something she called a “pioneer spirit” that gave her a capacity for great love and boldness. Cathy loved her family deeply and was always ready to be a second mother or sister to those around her. Quick to speak her mind, she was a straight-talker and spoke with honest compassion. Cathy had the opportunity to see many places around the world, including Germany, the United Kingdom, Mexico and Canada. Her most memorable journey was a family trip to Norway with John and Sean.

Years of work for the Federal government made Cathy an early riser, and each morning she would often talk for hours on the phone with her friend Carla or her son Sean. Her days were spent enjoying time with family and her two cats, and she always loved having a lunch date with her sisters-in-law in St. Louis. She was grateful for time with those she loved and enjoyed simple pleasures like attending church with her son Sean and daughter-in-law Cheyanne, or shopping with friends. Cathy welcomed the chance to cook for others, and many young people in St. Louis, Iowa and Texas have memories of her wonderful cooking. Cathy spent many evenings around the fire with her husband John, sharing stories with family and neighbors.

Cathy was devoted to her husband John and lived many happy years with him in the country. She instilled great kindness in her son Sean, and tenderly cared for her daughter Erin. She also had the great joy of a close relationship with her daughter-in-law Cheyanne. She was blessed by many lifelong friendships. As we grieve her passing, we treasure our time with her and hope to model her legacy of bravery, kindness, and faith. As she would say, "Play the hand you are dealt, take the next step, and sunny side up." Cathy’s sharp wit, quick laugh and tender heart will be missed by many, but she leaves behind a legacy that will inspire us to discover gratitude in daily life and find our own pioneer spirit.

Memorial Thursday, November 12, 3:30pm online through the Episcopal Church of the Holy Communion, with a ZOOM reception to follow at 4:00pm. A private interment will take place at St. Ann’s Catholic Cemetery, Long Grove, IA with a graveside service to be scheduled later due to the pandemic. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions preferred to the Iowa Special Olympics.
