Loretta was always young at heart with a playful spirit. She thoroughly enjoyed being right in the middle of any playful mischief in which the children of the family might be engaged. She was a sports fanatic, with an athletic tendency throughout her life, participating as a team member in bowling, water skiing, running marathons and tennis to name a few. Astrology was also a source of interest to her as a pastime. Her favorite holidays were Mardi Gras (carnival) and Christmas, but she loved and looked forward to time spent with her family. She will always be remembered for all the love and laughter she brought with her everywhere she went, and all the fun that was had with her.
