Dear aunt, cousin and friend to many.

Loretta was truly one of God’s angels here on Earth. She was a gentle soul and her Catholic faith was very important to her. She and her husband complimented each other in their roles as breadwinner and homemaker. This was evident in their marriage and in raising their five children.

Loretta loved her family and always delighted in spending time with them.  She warmly welcomed her children/grandchildren’s spouses into her family. She was an accomplished piano player and enjoyed spending time at the piano most days. Loretta earned her associate degree in music after her children were grown. She liked cooking and baking.  Collecting recipes was one of her hobbies. She also loved to read. Prior to COVID, Loretta played in numerous bridge and canasta groups through St Catherine Laboure. Loretta avidly volunteered throughout her life at the children’s grade school, Girl Scouts, and in her TOPS organization. And of course, Loretta loved her Cardinals – although she quite often referred to them as bums when they were in a slump!

SERVICES: A Celebration of Life Mass will be held at St Catherine Laboure Church on Saturday, April 6. Visitation will begin at 9:30 with Mass following at 10am.

Interment to follow later at Jefferson Barracks National Cemetery.

In lieu of flowers, contributions to Macular Degeneration Research, BrightFocus Foundation, 22512 Gateway Center Drive, Clarksburg, MD 20871, would be appreciated.

  1. I first met Loretta at Tops many years ago. I can’t talk to you about past tense because she is so much in my heart and I miss her. Loretta is the sweetest, kindest, most loving lady I ever knew and I miss her. I’m so happy that she and John considered me a friend and chose to let me into their life.
