Hello. I didn't know Loretta, but after my Dad's death in February i randomly googled his life dates - September 27th 1933 - February 22nd 2020 and Loretta's obituary came up. My dad's name was Stephen Treacy, and he played in showbands across Ireland for years, before opening a shoe store in the late 1960s. He married my mum Geraldine on June 18th 1968. I found it amazing that Dad and Loretta shared the exact same life span, down to the day. I hope she had a happy life. She looks like a lovely lady. I've attached a few pictures of Dad. Lots of love to Loretta's family, and my condolences. Kind regards, Sheila Treacy, Ballinlough, Co. Roscommon, Ireland.

If I was to make a list of wonderful people whom I have had the privilege to know in my life, Loretta would be right at the top of the list.
She took care of my Dad after his stroke in 1995 until his passing in 1998. She then stayed on to help Mom and was her main caregiver until her passing in 2009.
She went above and beyond, often coming over at all hours, taking Mom on road trips, to medical appointments, or whatever else was needed.
Thank you so much for sharing Loretta. Our prayers are with you.

Mike Outhier and family
