Mildred Loving (of Loving v. Virginia) passes away at the age of 68?

Note the question mark.

Obituary in The Free Lance–Star:

Mildred Loving, 68, of Central Point passed away Friday, May 2, 2008, at her residence. Arrangements are incomplete at Cedell Brooks Funeral Home, Port Royal.

I’m 99.9% that’s her based on this story last year:

Reporters no longer beat a path to the modest white house just over the Caroline County border — and that’s fine with its owner, a soft-spoken 67-year-old who never wanted the fame her marriage brought her.

Born Mildred Jeter, she’s known mostly by the name she took when she — a black woman living in segregated Virginia — dared break the rules by marrying a white man named Richard Loving.

Note the age.
