Loretta was a woman of faith, and a humble, loyal, and selfless friend to all who knew her. She was best known as a devoted and loving mother to her boys. Whether it was making trips back and forth to baseball or lacrosse practice, spending weekends in the bleachers at tournaments, or preparing wonderful meals at home, Loretta's sons were always her priority. Our beloved Loretta leaves a legacy of unfaltering strength and resolute dedication to serving others.
