Even after her daughter’s death, Lisa Lovett said she has continued to learn how her daughter impacted complete strangers.

At Landon Lovett’s memorial, Lisa said people she didn’t even know told her how Landon was always quick to help anyone.

“People would say, ‘I didn’t have her in class, but every time she passed by me she would smile and say hi,’” Lisa said in an email.

Landon was involved in a head-on vehicle collision on Memorial Day and was in a medically-induced coma until she died on Nov. 20.

Landon was a member of Alpha Omicron Pi, and the sorority has donated money for Landon’s family through multiple fundraisers since the accident.

AOPi President Alex LeForge said the sorority is having a lantern ceremony Wednesday to honor Landon and will be selling “wish lanterns” prior to the event.

LeForge said in an email that Landon was a loving and kind person, and was truly a blessing to the chapter.

“Landon left a lasting impression and legacy on our chapter and this campus, and will forever be remembered,” LeForge said. “We all are more than grateful for knowing Landon Lovett and having her as our sister.”

Landon loved WKU, and the Lovett family has been moved by the outpouring of support they’ve received. Lisa said she appreciates all of the kindness and prayers they have gotten from the WKU community.

But it wasn’t just WKU that Landon affected throughout her life.

Lisa said her daughter’s cheer and softball coaches said she was the most hardworking person they had coached.

Landon also loved God, Lisa said.

“I found a piece of paper in her room that had some New Year’s resolutions on it from last year and the first one was to ‘Get closer to God,’” Lisa said.

While Lisa said she has so many memories of Landon, one thing she will miss most is when Landon, and sometimes her friends, would go into the bedroom of Lisa and Trent Lovett, Landon’s father, and tell them about everything that was going on at school and with friends.

“They would come into our room and sit in the floor or on the corner of our bed and tell us about everything that they had done or about her friends and who was going out with who…

“I still listen for the back door to open and her to walk into my room.”
