Loretta was a 1958 graduate of Leechburg High School, and obtained her Bachelor’s Degree in Music from Duquesne University in 1962. She taught music in the Arnold, Leechburg, and Kiski Area Schools, and after leaving teaching, gave piano lessons from her home to 500 students over the course of 40 years.

Loretta enjoyed her monthly get-togethers with other members of her 1958 Leechburg High School class, and with husband Edward, was a member of a local bicycle club, riding bikes on trails all over the area. She liked working on crafts, and was skilled with taking sea shells, and creating keepsakes from them. Loretta loved traveling, and was an avid photographer, taking pictures of birds, wildlife, flowers, and her beloved family.
