Even though her life was cut short by Pulmonary Hypertension, a devastating

illness, Loretta lived a life filled with love, adventure, and sweet memories. Not

only had she lived in and visited places from coast to coast, but she also spent

several years in Europe, having lived in Germany and visited several other

countries while there. Loretta loved flowers, the Oregon coast, and a good

political argument with her eldest brother. She will be missed by so many.

Loretta chose to be cremated and will be laid to rest with her husband as well as

on the Oregon coast. A memorial service will be held at a later date at Howell

Memorial Cemetery in West Plains, Missouri. Memorial contributions may be made

to the Pulmonary Hypertension Association.

Arrangements and cremation are under the direction of Cremations of the
