Judy Love is one of the most philanthropic and involved Oklahoma Hall of Fame Honorees! She has lived her entire life in Oklahoma City and has loved every moment of it. She married Tom Love in 1960 and helped him start Love’s Travel Stops and Country Stores just a few years later. Since then, she has gotten involved in all sorts of philanthropic endeavors from fundraising for medical hospitals or supporting young theatrical actors. She and Mr. Love have donated millions as well as have been heavily involved in fundraising efforts for the St. Anthony’s Foundation and Hospital. Similarly, Judy Love serves on numerous boards such as the Oklahoma City Museum of Art, the Civic Center, Allied Arts, the American Heart Association, and many others. Judy Love has dedicated her love and passion to giving back to the Oklahoma and Oklahoma City community in everything that she does.
