Reita Claire Buchanon Love

June 10, 1951 — March 3, 2024

Reita Claire Buchanon Love was born June 10, 1951, in Artesia, New Mexico to Horace Greeley and Barbara Buchanon. 


In the year 1965 or 66 she moved to Libby, Montana. There she went to school, barrel raced, and enjoyed riding horses with her sister "where they weren't supposed to". 


Reita met Milt Love in 1975 and they were married a short time after. They divorced later but remained close friends. 


Reita was a beauty, with a beautiful soul and a heart of gold. She loved to drive go-carts, ride on the back of Milt's motorcycle, and deer hunting. 


She worked hard and loved deeply. She had an amazing smile and a contagious laugh. Also, the kindest soul of anyone I've ever known. 


She is survived by her daughter, Tawnie Love; her grandsons, Milton, and Cameron Love; many nieces, nephews, and a gaggle of "adopted" kids and grandkids. 


Some of those who knew and loved her added some thoughts and memories here.
