    My heart was sadden when I heard that Louvenia had passed, I met Louvenia at Bell Telephone in 1969 and we became friends. She was a lovely person. I attended her wedding 24 years ago when she married Tony, she was so happy! My sincere condolences to her husband and family. She will be missed. R.I.P. my friend!

    So sorry to hear Lovenia passing my condolences to her family. I worked with her at Bell Telephone Co at 3810 Chestnut Street and we also worked at 1613 Arch Street on the Official Board as operators from 1968 until 1975. I remember when she got married she was so happy. May she rest in peace.
