Margaret Jane Loveland

April 7, 1923February 27, 2019

John 11:25, 26 “I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in Me, though he may die, he shall live. And whoever lives and believes in Me shall never die."

Margaret Jane Loveland, the beloved matriarch of the Loveland family, entered the presence of her Savior on February 27, 2019. As we released her, we wept, but the shouts of "Hallelujah" echoed through Heavens gate. She was surrounded by family and slipped into eternity with a peace that passes all understanding. Jane was born on April 7, 1923 to Robert and Clara Gilmore in PIttsburgh, PA. She had 2 brothers, Robert and Richard. She married her high school sweetheart who served in the Navy in WWII. They moved to South Florida when the war ended and raised their family here. Jane and Nelson were a team and together they were the hands and feet of Jesus to so many. They were instrumental in the founding and running of Palm Bible Chapel. Jane served there in many capacities and was the organist for years. Nelson was a founding member and served as President of The King's Academy with Jane by his side. Jane was his secretary and ever present helper. Jane and Nelson served joyfully with a servants heart and touched countless lives. Jane poured her life and heart into her family and those she knew. She loved with a passion. She loved and served her Savior well and her eternal impact is immeasurable. To say she is loved falls so very short. She will be missed beyond measure. She is preceded in death by her husband, Miles Nelson Loveland, her oldest son, David John Loveland (Carol), and her oldest granddaughter, Kelly Loveland Gourley. Her 5 surviving children are Daniel Loveland (Cindy), Mayda Loveland Tress, Jeffrey Loveland (Gloria), Robert Loveland (Jan), Randall Loveland (Marjie). She is also "Gramma" to 18 surviving grandchildren and 40 great grandchildren.

The Loveland family invites you to celebrate with them, this life well lived on Thursday, March 7, 2019 at 10am at the south campus of Christ Fellowship in Palm Beach Gardens. There will be a catered lunch reception following the service.

In lieu of flowers, the family has designated The King’s Academy M. Nelson and Jane Loveland Scholarship Endowment for memorial contributions. Gifts can be mailed to The King’s Academy at 8401 Belvedere Road, West Palm Beach, FL 33411

A tremendous blessing to work with Mr. Loveland; thereby, getting the opportunity to know Mrs. Loveland. Then in recent times, I was able to still see Mrs. Loveland's love for the Lord as her body was unable to do most things; but, when Gospel music was sung, she would perk right up & tap to the beat.

Growing up with the Loveland/ Gilmore and Erneston clan like I was privileged to do has given me COUNTLESS wonderful and blessed "remembrances” that I’ve always cherished. I guess my favorite memories with Aunt Jane though, were singing around the piano with her ( where she typically had her shoe off to better pump on the pedal!) both at PBC as well as in their living room! Music 🎶 and Aunt Jane go hand in hand in my mind, and I’m grateful for all the musical help she gave me. I truly loved her dearly!
Our Palm Bible Chapel reunions are growing by leaps and bounds where we’ll ALL get to join in someday! ♥️♥️♥️

Mrs. Loveland, I did not know you personally but what a wonderful daughter you raised. Mayda has and is still touching God’s children every day. A real tribute to her wonderful parents. Rest in God’s arms and know, job well done.
