Our beloved matriarch, Quillie Virginia Loche, first blessed this world with her radiant light on January 30th, 1942, Born to doting parents Charles and Donzell Givens, Quillie grew up spreading joy with her quick wit, luminous smile, and thirst for life's experiences!
On January 31st, 2024, our dear Quillie quietly drifted into peaceful rest. She was surrounded by family who lovingly ushered her as she joined those gone who had gone on before. Those saints included her loving husband, John, Luther Loche Jr., her parents - Charles and Donzell Givens, a vivacious sister, Doris, her eldest sister Ethel Mae, and younger brother Edward. She lived a full and vibrant life for eight decades before her light returned home.
As a trailblazer, she often paved the way for her family and friends to explore the world. Quillie graduated from Morehouse Parish High School and married her high school sweetheart, John Luther Loche Jr.
John and Quillie were whisked away into a life full of adventure when John joined the United States Air Force. Their adventures led them to Hawaii, Japan, London, New York, Maine, and California, to name a few. She had the privilege of joining the choir and singing behind the legendary Rocket Man, Elton John! She was a superstar in her own right and built a notable career in AAFES that took her to visit many wonders of the world after husband, John retired.
Her love for traveling and adventure did not end when she retired. She planted seeds within her grandchildren and community with stories, and of course, treasures from places that she visited. She was an avid bingo champion. She greeted all she met with a smile that glowed from within. Her laughter was as infectious as her smile.
Though deeply missed, her luminous spirit lives on in the hearts of all who knew and loved her. Treasuring her memory are her children: Gwen and George, her grandchildren LaKeshia, Lanece, Zion, Joshua, Asher, Eden, and Jakob, great-granddaughter Skyla, and her sister, Louise Johnson.
As we grieve her passing, we also celebrate the remarkable life of our beloved matriarch. She lived a life overflowing with joy and grace that she shared abundantly. She leaves legacy of light and love woven into the fabric of her family and community.
"May the wings of her spirit continue to envelop us in memories as precious as she was to us all!"
