Lorretta enjoyed traveling, especially with her husband. Some of her favorite trips were to California, Alaska, England, Scotland, and Whales. She also liked to read, and would frequently be seen doing the crossword puzzles in the paper. Although she liked to traveling, reading, and crossword puzzles, Loretta’s family was most important to her, and her favorite moments were the ones spent with her family.
