She was a member of the Bensenville Homemakers, volunteered with Helping Hands, and was a member at Faith Community UCC.
Loretta enjoyed collecting vintage jewelry along with anything that struck her fancy. She was always a fan of old movies and could tell you the year the movie was made and the movie stars.
