Debra Bradford Lovett

Debra Bradford Lovett, 70, of Amarillo, passed away peacefully September 14, 2022, surrounded by her loving family at her home in Amarillo.

A Memorial Service will be held at 1:00 p.m. Monday, September 19, 2022, at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints in Westcliff, 2101 N. Coulter St., Amarillo, Texas. All are welcome!

The family will receive visitors at the same location from 6:00-8:00 p.m., Sunday, September 18, 2022, at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints in Westcliff, 2101 N. Coulter St., Amarillo, Texas.

Debbie was born on July 12, 1952, in Temple Texas to Charles Ennis Bradford and Imagene Burrell. After moving to various places throughout Texas, the family settled in Amarillo in 1964. Debbie graduated from Tascosa High School in 1970 and began Amarillo College soon thereafter. There she was introduced to The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and was baptized a member in August of 1973. Debbie’s enthusiasm for the gospel led her to serve a mission for the LDS Church just 2 years later. She served for 18 months in the Birmingham England Mission, where she fell in love with Great Britain. Upon her return home to Amarillo, she worked at Northwest Texas Hospital in the neonatal nursery. A few years later, in June 1978, she married Brock Wade Lovett, and they embarked on a 44-year journey together, in which she dedicated her entire life to raising their children. Throughout her life, Debbie found true joy in raising her family and in her church service, especially when working with the children and the youth. Her most oft quoted scripture was “Look unto me in every thought; doubt not, fear not” (Doctrine & Covenants 6:36).

She is survived by her devoted husband, Brock Lovett; her beloved children; Sarah Heath (Chris) of Duncan Oklahoma, Katie Folsom (Scott) of Palmer Alaska, Rebekah Petersen (Jim) of Duncan Oklahoma, Bradford Lovett of Tulsa Oklahoma, Benjamin Lovett (Alexis) of Amarillo Texas, and Hannah Flake (Jaedon) of Murray Utah; her beautiful grandchildren, Charly & Ethan Heath, Eliott, Maxwell, Julia, Luke, and Elizabeth Folsom, Ellie, Averi, Huck, Beau, and Wade Petersen, Marshall, Hayes, and Emeline Lovett; her brother, Charles Bradford of Dayton, Ohio, as well as many nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends.

    I can remember Sarah being there for me at church and outside. I have always enjoyed Bible Fireside at the Lovetts. Wish I would have gotten back in touch with Sister Lovett since I have been back in Amarillo but I was fighting demons and didn’t want these evil people targeting my close friends and church family. Please accept my humble condolences and prayers for the Lovett family. You all are wonderful people!
