Loma was born Aug. 4, 1930, in Pamlico County to the late L.C. and Annie Mason. She was a tender-hearted woman who loved the Lord and used this gift to nurture many lives during her years. As a member of Atlantic Missionary Baptist Church, she was always happy to work in the nursery, attending the children and extending her care to them. She was also an amazing cook who thoroughly enjoyed feeding loved ones. If you were connected to Mrs. Lupton over the years, then you surely received a pan of her famous light rolls that she loved to bake and share with others. Most importantly, she loved her family. Her husband of 71 years, Richard Lupton Sr., was her constant, loving companion. Her children were her delight, and her grandchildren and great-grandchildren were the sparkle of her eye whom she always enjoyed being able to spend time with. Mrs. Lupton will be forever remembered as a loving wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother.

In addition to her husband, she is survived by her daughter, Teresa Gaskill and husband Julian of Sea Level; sons, Richard M. Lupton Jr., Jeffrey Wayne Lupton and wife Madolyn and Joseph Dean Lupton, all of Atlantic; sister, Merle English and husband John of Cedar Rapids, Iowa; grandchildren, April Russell of Greenville, Jeremy Lupton of Yorktown, Va., and Allison Miller of Greenville; great-grandchildren, Michael Christian Russell of Buena Vista, Va., Lauren Faith Russell and Owen Miller, both of Greenville, and Cullen Lupton and Jace Lupton, both of Yorktown, Va.; niece, Phyllis Sidelko of Lucas Grove, Va.; and nephews, Gregory Eugene English of Alliance, Ohio, and Vince English of Kansas City, Mo.
