Helen Louise Bush Loveday, known to her family as Grandma, Mema and Greatma, went to be with the Lord on November 22, 2019 at the Baylor Scott & White Medical Center in Sunnyvale, Texas. She was six days past her 92nd birthday.
Helen was born on Wednesday, November 16, 1927, in Tipton, Oklahoma, to Ervin Lee Bush and Nell Baker.
She was preceded in death by: her parents; her loving husband of 61 years, Jack Loveday; her son, Richard "Ricky" Rucker; her sister-in-law, Doris; and her grandson, Eddie "Taterbug" Hunt. Helen is survived by: her daughters, Martha (Dennis) Rook, Mary (Duane) Mathis; her son, Eddie (Debbie) Rucker; her daughter-in-law, Rosemary; her grandchildren Jennifer, Darrel and his wife Amy, Keith, Patsy, Jack and his wife Shauna, Patrick, Randall, Destiny and Idyn; her great-grandchildren Staci, Scotty, Melissa, Jackie and her husband Brian, Clayton, John Michael and his wife Nikki Mae, Jesse, Kayla, Cody, McKenzie, Cheyenne and Dakota; her great-great-grandchildren Shiloh, Piper, Ray Ray and Ryland; and her brothers Dyrl, Earl and Clif.
Helen is remembered for her willingness to always help others, her amazing green thumb and her love of making and trying new foods (the spicier, the better). She was always a phone call away whether a warm meal was needed, a shoulder to cry on, a friend to celebrate with or an extra set of hands for crafting.

Funeral services will be held at 2:00PM on Thursday, December 5, 2019, in the Chapel of Laurel Oaks Funeral Home. Interment in Laurel Oaks Memorial Park will follow.
