The genealogy group at the Plainfield-Guilford Township Public Library (Family History Hounds) enjoyed our time with Loretta these last few years. She was the kindest and sweetest lady! We appreciated her tenacity and curiosity when it came to doing her family history--always looking for the next clue in the search. We will miss her.

Aunt Loretta was married to my Uncle Jerry (my dad's brother). I have many fond memories of her and the family. Spent many hours at the Big Donut Shop as a child and will always cherish that time.

Loretta was my godmother. She always loved telling the story of when I found out. For years she always brought me gifts when I saw her. When I finally realized she was my godmother, she asked why I thought she always brought me gifts. I responded “I just thought you liked me.” She will be greatly missed. Here is a picture of when she came to visit me at a high school competition.

We had gone camping down near Edinburgh at Blue's Canoe Livery and it was my 40th birthday. Loretta brought me a black cake, then tee peed my tent! Another camping trip at Redbrush, we went horseback riding and Loretta was chatting up the young boy leading us trying to help him decide what kind of beer he was going to drink when he turned 21. I think they decided on Colt 45! There was never a dull moment. I will always cherish every moment that we spent in the company of all her friends. She will be so missed.
