Loretta will be fondly remembered for her devotion to her children, her quick quips, snipes, and chuckles, and her appreciation of vibrant blooming flowers.
A sincere thank-you to the staff at Talarico Place for the compassionate, patient, and empathic care Loretta received over the past 32 months.
A special thank-you to Joanne O’Keefe for sharing her heart.
A celebration of life is planned for the spring.Obituary-
