Lova “Granny” Harding, age 80, was a woman unlike any other.

This day and time, anywhere we look it seems like the true salts of this Earth are disappearing. Lova Harding is one of these salts. Lova passed peacefully the morning of July 29th, 2023. Love her or not, all can agree on the uniqueness of this woman. Fiercely dedicated to her family, she spent her life holding everyone together. One by one, all of her children and grandchildren ventured out and made lives of their own. All had a deeply-seated peace knowing she was there for each of them.

Lova was always overjoyed to see any of us and was filled with tears when we left. Her home was always a comfort and anyone who visited knew they were welcome. Those left to cherish her in memory, are her husband of 22 years: Plummer Harding; her children: Leo Wayne Mason, Barbara Ellen Mason, and Michael Mason Harding; her remaining step children: Tracy Harding, Tammy Harding, and Toni Whitfield; Her siblings: Fairley Monroe Blevins and Alvie Graham; her grandchildren, step-grandchildren, step great-grandchildren and great grandchildren.

A viewing will be held on Tuesday, August 1st from 5:00pm – 8:00pm at Joseph B. Paul Jr. Funeral Service.

Joseph B. Paul Jr. Funeral Service is honored to assist the Harding family.
