Taking special care of her roses and hydrangea flowers, collecting various antiques, and sewing were also her favorite interests over the years.

Loretta leaves behind her son, Tim Dean and wife Leila; daughter, Trish Stevens and husband Bobby; two grandsons: Joseph Roberts and wife Crystal and Westley Robinson; granddaughter, Beth Stevens; and two great-grandsons: Joe Wes Lester and Chris Lester.
