Patricia Couwlier Burich/ September 15, 2020. I will always remember everything I shared with Loretta. She was my special friend when a lot of our friends got together. I met her through my brother Don when he was dating her She then worked at Miller Brothers Dairy. Boy that was a joy!!! She made us the biggest sundaes and ice cream cones ever. I was thrilled when my brother Don married her and she became my sister-in-law. I will always share all the memories and keep her in my prayers. My sympathy to my brother Don and the family.

I had a lot of great memories with my aunt loretta especially when we lived down the street from each other i rode my bike over there many of times and delivered them the news paper when i was their paperboy . and memories of bbq holidays in algonac Michigan. I will miss you with all my tears and memories we had together but i know that you grew your angel wings and took your eternal journey into heaven but i know that you are resting in peace now and spiritually watching over all of us as our guardian angel and also we know that you are not alone because you are with my grandma and grandpa along with my aunts and uncles in heaven so you will be having a family reunion in heaven. Me and my kids and family loved you so much we will miss you always but you will always be in our prayers and memories

I have a lot of good childhood memories of Aunt Loretta (who was also my god mother) She always made me feel welcome when I saw her. Her voice and her smile are hard to forget. For some reason I can still remember the red plaid metal lunch box with the thermos inside I got for a Christmas gift from her. My sympathy to Uncle Don and the family.
