Loretta stayed strong through all her battles. Through her, we know what resilience and perseverance truly look like. She loved her family so much, especially her daughter and grandkids. She also had many “neighborhood” grandchildren that loved her as her own. Loretta loved spending time at Seaside beach, going out to dinner and decorating for holidays; all of which will never be the same.
