     The land for the church and cemetery was given by Daniel Otto.  The church was established several years before 1834, and originally called Daniel's Church, or Otto's Church, but eventually came to be called St. Johns Evangelical Lutheran Church of Lovi.  The church's early members were of the German Evangelical Congregation, and many of the early tombstones in the cemetery are in old German.


Cemetery is administered by:
