There is a source that comes very close to the origin of the expression = “loved to death” – It is found in the traditional wedding vows used in the church when the couple exchanged their vows. The man takes the right hand of the woman and they exchange this promise.

I “________ in the presence of God and these witnesses – take thee __________ to be my wedded wife – and plight thee my troth – till death us do part.”
