Sadly, he preceded her in death on June 19, 2007. Loretta worked on the Assembly Line for AC Delco until her retirement in 1982. After retiring, Loretta went on to obtain her cosmetology license. Loretta lived on Hubbard Lake and loved to spend her time out on the pontoon boat. She enjoyed traveling and was blessed to be able to go to Hawaii, Mexico, and take several cruises. She enjoyed wintering in Florida and taking trips with her family. She especially looked forward to the yearly girls' trip with her daughters and her nieces, Debbie and Diane. Loretta was very good at canning vegetables that were grown in her garden as well as pickles, grape jelly and apples picked from her apple tree. She made the best apple pie from those same apples. Loretta looked forward to the monthly family game nights with her family, however, she was very competitive, so you better be ready. Loretta loved to watch Jeopardy and eat popcorn. She also enjoyed reading and enjoyed novels by James Patterson. She always had a book by her bed. Loretta enjoyed painting lighthouses and other crafts. She painted several pieces of her Christmas village and displays them at Christmas. Loretta loved life and would do anything for her family. She will be greatly missed.
