Dorothy Faye Love
Indianapolis, IN – Dorothy Faye Love, 65, longtime resident of Indianapolis, IN, passed away peacefully on February 28, 2020. Dorothy was the youngest daughter of the late Fannie Lee Love and Howard Love, who moved from Mississippi to Indianapolis when she was a young child. She attended George Washington High School and graduated from Indiana University.
Dorothy served in the Marine Corps and moved on to a distinguished career with the Indiana State Police. Known for her unwavering drive and devotion, she rose to become one of ISP’s few black female Master Troopers of her time, until her retirement after nearly three decades of service to the Indianapolis area. Dorothy’s pioneering and dedication to service have positively affected and inspired countless lives.
Outside of her professional career, Dorothy will be remembered fondly by her family and friends for the lavish birthday parties, neighborhood gatherings, and decorated Christmas celebrations she infamously prepared. Above all else, Dorothy’s proudest accomplishment was her loving son. From sharing shopping trips with her mother to sharing her collected wisdom on life, she was her absolute happiest when the two of them were together. Dorothy enjoyed retirement alongside her son and her family until her final day.
Dorothy’s spirit, strength, and her unbridled love lives on through her loved ones. Dorothy was preceded in death by her brother, Eddie Love, and is survived by her son, Roman Love, and her siblings Arnold Love and Marchell Hunt.
Please join us in celebrating the legacy of Dorothy Faye Love. Visitation will be held at Friendship Missionary Baptist Church, 1301 N. Goodlet Ave., on Thursday, Mar 12, 2020 from 9:00-11:00AM, with Celebration of Life starting at 11:00AM. Interment following the funeral service will be held at Lincoln Memory Gardens, 6851 S Indianapolis Rd. Following the interment, the family invites all attendees to celebrate Dorothy’s life at Friendship Missionary Baptist Church.

I worked with Dorothy at District 52 nearly 20 years ago. She always loved to talk to me about family. My thoughts and prayers are with her family and loved ones.

Dorothy Faye Love. We were classmates in the ISP Academy at the Indiana Law Enforcement Academy and became close friends. I remember we ride shared back and forth from Plainfield for the training and eventually became coworkers at the Indianapolis District 52 post.
You were a tough woman and a US Marine if memory serves me correctly.
Though we hadn't been in touch since your retirement but only a couple of times, I always felt no news was good news. When I got the message from another classmate, Edwin Davis I was in shock! I still find it hard to believe you're gone. Some people we immortalize and think or feel they'll just be there forever. You were one of those people. You'll always be remembered by me and so many others.
I know from scriptures it reads in the Book of Ecclesiastes that there is a time and season for all things under the sun. I time to be born, and time to die, to plant and to harvest, a time to laugh and a time to cry. A time and season for all things under the sun. We all have seasons and we all have reasons. A reason for being where we are and a season for being where we are for a particular time. I'm fortunate that we had our reason and our season.
I'm sending thoughts and prayers to all your family members and I know that you will continue to be loved and missed dearly by so many.
39th Recruit School, Always up, never down.

Rest in the Lord my friend! We all meet people of all kinds through life's journey, but not all leave a lasting mark. You my friend, I will always remember.
