    Sorry to hear about the passing of your Mom, met her a few times, a sweet lady. My condolences and prayers to you and family . Ruth

    I am so very sorry for all of you she was a wonderful lady. She was my sweetheart for a long time. We have had many laughs. She would always tell me first we work than we play. I still say this to this day. She always loved my hamburgers at the Trenary Tavern and I would say when I waited on her I know what you want and she would say you do know don’t you. She made me mittens out if sweaters which I still have three pairs. I will cherish them and always think of her. RIP my dear

    I met Loretta when she bonked me in the head with a pool noodle in exercise class, and we became instant friends. She was a tough opponent in euchre, Rummikub and Word With Friends, and her homemade bread was the best. She gave the best hugs and always had a patient ear to talk over anything that was on my mind. I am blessed to have known her and will miss my second mom.

    So sorry for your loss. We are gonna miss her standing in the window and waving at us or yelling hello across the street. She is such a sweet lady and friend. She will be missed greatly.

    There’s a foursome dancing, playing cards, snowmobiling and traveling. Ed and Loretta were my parents friends that become family. Then there was Loretta and I getting stranded snowmobiling while we were out as her bread was rising. What a BLESSING ❤️ so many great memories.

    Loretta was a wonderful woman. We were lucky to have known her. She always had a smile on her face and she gave so much to St. St. Rita’s Church. She will be missed by so many people who knew her.

    Loretta was one of a kind! She truly had a beautiful soul! I will miss her more than most of you could know or understand! Definitely by far one of my longest beauty shop clients and a dear friend! The laughter and cries in that shop were all good! And the stories , especially when Pauline was alive and they would come together! The world lost a good one here!
    I am so sorry for your loss and she will be missed. I wish a couple weeks ago I’d have had more time with her on the phone when she called.

    What a loss all of the Flygare kids remember the good times playing in the front yard while our parents played cards, such good times. Our thoughts and prayers are with all of the family. We all have another angle to watch over us all.

    We feel very sad for the family and friends of Loretta. She made us feel good to be her neighbor. We will always have warm memories and respect for all of the contributions she made to this community. A great person.

    I was so sorry to hear about Loretta passing. I know she loved the Lord and is in perfect peace now with her Lord and Savior. She was always a blessing to work with when we would play for the dances at the community center. She was a wonderful gift from God to her family and all who knew her. See you in the next life Loretta. May God’s peace that goes beyond our understanding rest on all her family. Harlond & Julie Foster aka Little Bit Of Outlaw.
