Biography: 

Louvinia serves as the cook for the Sartoris family. She and her husband Joby are the head of the family of slaves who have served the Sartorises for several generations and who (with the exception of Loosh, not mentioned in this story) stay loyal to them even after the Union army has passed through Yoknapatawpha, which gave most of the slaves in the area a chance to escape. Louvinia is the mother of Philadelphy (also not mentioned in this story), who is married to Loosh and is the mother of Ringo.
