Loretta DeAngelo Anderson, born August 19, 1929, was called home by the Good Lord on July 3, 2020. She was preceded in death by her husband of 60 years, Robert, a son Robert, a grandson Robert and 10 brothers, sisters, and her beloved mother-in- law, Greta.

Small in stature with a big heart, Loretta never met a stranger. She was well known for her unending compassion for anyone in need and was devoted to her family, friends, volunteer activities and church community. Anyone who entered Loretta's kitchen was greeted with a smile, an insistent bite to eat, and easy conversation. Known as Gi-Gi to her great-grandsons, Loretta was the first to get on the floor to play as she did with any child. Her incredible outgoing nature and selflessness were witnessed in all she did.
Ever committed to her faith, Loretta was a celebrant at the Corpus Christi Parish and a member of the Altar and Rosary Society..She provided communion, conversation and goodies to countless shut-ins. Everyone who came in contact with Loretta felt her compassion selflessness,faith .and unconditional love. We were all blessed to have been touched by her grace.
The family would like to extend a special thank you to Dr. Ron Nardell. His incredible medical care and genuine love for Loretta created many bright spots during challenging times.
