Lucille Cusick Loveday, age 82 of Seymour, stepped out of her earthly life and into Heaven Sunday, December 9, 2012, following a long and courageous battle with Alzheimer’s. Lucille was a tireless caregiver for her family members and loved her parents beyond measure. Today she is surely walking the streets of gold with them.

As a young girl, Lucille attended Sugarloaf Baptist Church where she accepted Jesus Christ as her Savior. As a young adult, she worked at Sanson Hosiery Mill Sevierville Division where she met her husband Beecher. Lucille was an avid housekeeper and gardener and was known for keeping a beautifully manicured lawn and flowers.

“And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.” Revelation 21:4.

Preceded in death by parents, Charles and Minnie Cusick; sister, Mildred Redmon; brothers, Eugene and Billy Joe Cusick; and her beloved son, Jimmy.

Survived by devoted husband of 61 years, Beecher Loveday; daughter-in-law, Mary Ellen Loveday; granddaughter, Beth Loveday; grandson, Charlie Loveday; sister and brother-in-law, Helen and Mayford Kerr; sister-in-law, Edna Cusick; special cousin, Martha Hobby; several nieces, nephews, cousins, neighbors and friends.

The family would like to say a very special thank you to her exceptional caregiver Leisa Molitar, the staff of Caris Hospice Sevierville, Lauren Luttrell, Patsy Bradford and Zion Hill Baptist Church WMU.

Graveside service and interment 1 p.m. Wednesday in Knob Creek Cemetery with Brother Randy Leming officiating. The family will receive friends 5-7:30 Tuesday at Atchley Funeral Home in Seymour, 122 Peacock Court, Seymour, TN 37865 (577-2807).
