Rebecca Ann Loveless Rochelle age 91, of Nashville, TN, passed away on Monday, January 13, 2020. Ann was born on August 13, 1928, in Hohenwald, TN, the daughter of Will and Mavis Poore Loveless. She married Guy Buford Rochelle on January 7, 1949, and he precedes her in death. Also preceding her in death are nine of her ten siblings; in-laws, Ellis and Mona Rochelle; grand-daughter, Amy Rochelle; and Guy’s two brothers, Mac B. and Joe. Surviving are sons, Steve (Carolyn) Rochelle and Tim (Sherrie) Rochelle; four grandchildren, Stephen (Amanda) Rochelle, Katherine Rochelle, Jonathan (Peyton) Rochelle, and Jennifer Rochelle; three great-grandchildren, Scott, Lauren, and Miller Kate; one brother, Johnny Brown (Judy) Loveless; brother-in-law, Pat Rochelle; cherished cousin, Leta Fay Anderson; and several nieces and nephews. Ann graduated from Lewis County High School in Hohenwald, TN, in 1946. She and Guy were charter members of Brentwood Hills Church of Christ, and she was known for knitting baby booties. Camping here and there, catching Alabama bass on Lake Louise, compliments of Ray Robinson, and singing the old Hohenwald High fight song were just a few of the things she enjoyed doing with Guy. In her later years, you could find Ann with a crossword puzzle in hand. She truly loved her family, and she will be greatly missed. The family would like to express their appreciation to the caring staff at Charter Senior Living in Hermitage and to Encompass Hospice for their love and care shown to Ann.

I loved Ann and Guy! Two of my favorite friends! They would come to Nashville Zoo and walk the trails. I met them because I worked with Guy's brother, Mac B. Rochelle, when I worked at Folk Jordan Real Estate Company in Brentwood, Tn. Such a sweet couple... They don't make them like that any more. My thoughts and my prayers are with the family and friends. I will always remember their friendship! A True Southern Lady and a True Southern Gentleman!

My Aunt Ann always made me feel welcome when we would come to visit. I remember playing Lincoln Logs on the floor with Steve as a kid and eating her yummy yeast rolls. She shared her recipes with me as I grew up and realized what a great cook she was. I so admired the beautiful quilts she made and wished I was as talented as she was. She always reminded me of my mom, her sister Betty, and she will be missed. Our love to the all her wonderful family. Deb and Jim
