Lovie Hobbs Obituary

My life was beautiful for as long as it lasted, but the journey of my life has come to an end after ninety years of toiling through this land. God promised all mankind three scores and ten. I have been blessed because He gave me twenty additional years. Some things in life are impossible for mankind to fully understand, and just how long God allows us to live is just one of them. No matter how long God has entrusted our loved ones here on Earth, their departure is hard to understand. As a family, you must accept God’s will and abide by His holy words. The Bible tells us that to be absent from the body is to be in the presence of the Lord. Lovie Mae Hobbs was born on May 15, 1933, to Lillie and Henry Hobbs in Butler, Georgia. To further their careers in farm work, the family moved from Butler to Blakely, Georgia, and then Gadsden County, Florida, where they eventually settled and raised their family of eight children.

Lovie moved to Brunswick, Georgia, in her early twenties, where she helped her sister raise and care for her family. She also began her career as a seamstress at Brunswick Manufactory and retired from the Sea Island Company in the late 90s. Her retirement consisted of becoming an avid fisherman and gardener, the latter led to her tending to the church garden for many years. Affectionately known by those who loved her as Mae Mae, Lov, or Lovie Mae, Lovie was a prideful woman. She was headstrong in her ways but honest in her truth. She loved her plants and she found much joy in watching her grandchildren and greatgrandchildren bloom into the world. With her quick, witty responses, you could count on Mae Mae to have an opinion on just about anything. She did her absolute best to provide and teach the young females in the family how to be a woman. She wanted nothing but the best for her family of young ladies. She spent her life encouraging her grandchildren and great-grandchildren to be the best in life and to do what’s right.

She was preceded in death by her parents, Lillie and Henry Hobbs; husband, Bud Williams; brothers, brothers, Morris (Lula Mae), Warren, Sr., (Ethel Lee), Cicero (Doris); sisters, Edna Blakely (Al), Lala Searcy (Willie), and Catherine Smith (Roscoe); son-in-law, James Roher; and her great-granddaughter, Azure Roher.

She leaves to cherish her memories: daughter, Mary Ann Roher; sister, Armanda Ferguson (Ernest); two granddaughters, Dana Davies and Alana Roher; four great-granddaughters, Alexandra Vardaman, Amanee Davies, Serin Jordan, and Aliyah Davies; great-great-granddaughter, Sarai Smith, who was the apple of her eye and who she nicknamed “BooMama”; along with a host of nieces, nephews, and friends
