Mary Anne (Stephenson) Lovdahl, 94, Gilbert, AZ (formerly of Lynn Center, IL), passed into the Lord’s hands on Monday, June 13, 2022 at her home. A Celebration of Life will be held at 11 AM on Saturday, August 20, 2022 at Augustana Lutheran Church, Andover, IL. Following the funeral and graveside service at Andover Cemetery, a luncheon will be served in the church’s Luther Hall. Reverend Reed Pedersen will be officiating. Peterson Wallin Knox Funeral Home in Alpha is assisting the family with arrangements. The full obituary may be viewed at www.petersonwallinknox.com
There will be no visitation however her family welcomes the loved ones who can’t make the service (or even if you can) to an open house at her home in Lynn Center between 4-7 PM on Friday, August 19, 2022. For all gatherings, please follow recommended Covid protocols to ensure the safety of yourself and others.
In lieu of flowers or gifts, the family requests that memorials be made in Mary Anne’s name to Augustana Lutheran Church, Andover, IL (www.andoverlutheran.org) or Lutheran Social Services of the Southwest (www.lss-sw.org). Mary Anne was extremely passionate about their humanitarian efforts aiding the children at the border. In the spirit of Mary Anne, we also are collecting donation items for the Orion Food Pantry and Rock Island Animal Shelter at both the Celebration of Life and the open house.
