Lillian Lovegrove Obituary

Lillian E (Fortin) Lovegrove, of New Bedford, Massachusetts passed away on Friday April 28, 2023 at the age of 89, following a period of declining health.

She was the daughter of Ernestine (LePage) and Sylvio Fortin. She was a loving sister to Doris Szela, Eugene Fortin and Lucille Violette.

Lillian was a lifelong New Bedford resident and worked for several years at Rodney Metals where she met the love of her life, her late husband Richard W Lovegrove.

After retiring, she enjoyed socializing with her many friends and family. A road trip with a stop at one of her favorite dining spots made for a perfect day.

Often she could be found walking around Sassaquin Pond or Buttonwood Park. Her nieces and nephews will remember her as a fun, kind and loving Aunt.

Lillian’s family would like to thank the staff at The Oaks for the outstanding care she received. We will never forget how compassionate everyone was.
