After she retired she moved to the Eufaula Lake area with her husband and had lived there the past 15 years. She married Jim Hammersley on February 3, 1964, in Seminole. Loretta was a loving person who cared for her family, and they were important to her. She loved the holidays and especially Christmas. She loved to decorate and be with her husband, children, and grandchildren. Her family remembers her as having a passion for cooking and being an excellent cook. She loved to bake and minister to family and neighbors through her baking. She was active in the Women's Auxiliary of the V.F.W. in Eufaula OK and helped support the Enterprise Oklahoma Fire Department by baking for "bake sales" and other fund-raising events. She loved to travel and shop with her daughter. Laughter was everywhere in her life, and she had a laugh that was contagious and people remembered.
