Loweta Pope

August 27, 1927 — February 11, 2018

Loweta Pope, age 90, of Coleman, was called Home to be with her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ on Sunday, February 11, 2018 at Coleman County Medical Center. A celebration of her life will be held at 10:00 a.m. Wednesday, February 14, 2018 at the First United Methodist Church with Rev. Mike Alexander officiating.

She was born Loweta Marie Thomason on August 27, 1927 in Talpa to Robert Aaron Thomason and Harvey Pearl Tidmore Thomason. Loweta graduated from Centennial High School and then attended Draughan’s Business College in Abilene. She married Lee Perkins and they were blessed with three children. Loweta was a life-long resident of Coleman County and was a member of the First United Methodist Church in Coleman.

She faced trials throughout her life most people never have to come up against but confronted those trials head on as one of the strongest and most positive people you would ever encounter. James 1:2-3 sums up her life well “Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance.” No one had a better attitude than “Nanny” and her outlook on life will always be a model for her family and friends to live by.

While she was one of the most humble people you would ever encounter, she was very proud of her family which will strive every day to continue her legacy. She is survived by one son, Aaron Perkins and wife Vicki of Clarksville; two daughters, Pati Barton and husband Gary of Talpa and Nancy Weber and husband Toby of Granbury; eight grandchildren, Drew Perkins, Menden Perkins, Kolt Perkins and wife Tierney, Heather Barker and husband Casey, Johanna Gordon and husband Sean, Payton Mayes and wife Andrea, Matthew Mayes and wife Sandy, and Tyler Weber and wife Amy; 12 great-grandchildren, Kassidy Barker, Hayden Barker, Gunner Gordon, Gage Gordon, Briley Perkins, Beck Perkins, Bleu Perkins, Merritt Mayes, Channing Mayes, Stella Mayes, Aiden Mayes, and Berkley Weber; and special childhood friend, Betty Jo Snodgrass of Denver City.

A family visitation will be held immediately after the Celebration of Life Service on Wednesday, February 14, 2018 at the First United Methodist Church.

1 Thessalonians 4:13-14
Brothers and sisters, we do not want you to be uninformed about those who sleep in death, so that you do not grieve like the rest of mankind, who have no hope. For we believe that Jesus died and rose again, and so we believe that God will bring with Jesus those who have fallen asleep in him.
