    Loretta was married to my Uncle Louie and from the day he brought her to meet us my cousin Linda and I idolized her! We had many good times together and in her later years she and I have met many times with family members for lunch or dinner. I was grateful to attend her surprise 90th birthday party last year.
    I recently had surgery and she was calling me everyday to send good healing wishes and asked to speak with me even in her latest remaining hours!
    I’m going to miss her but I know she’s in a better place with her departed loved ones watching over her children grandchildren and great- grandchildren who she loved dearly. I’m glad to celebrate her life!!❤️

    We would like to extend our deepest sympathies to Loretta’s family & friends, and to my Brother in Law Randy & my sister Andra. We are so sorry for your loss.
    I met Loretta when I was 12yrs old and was immediately taken by her kindness, beauty & light – qualities she passed onto her children. Loretta always had time to say Hello & catch up with us. I was fortunate to talk with her before she passed and I will cherish that moment always.
    Rest in Peace, Loretta.
    Much Love,
    Carole & Nick Borys & Family
