She was born May 7, 1938, in West Palm Beach, Florida, to the late Lyman and Lois (Walker) Holley.
Loretta was a petite lady with the biggest heart and passion for life. Her first love was being a devoted wife, mother, grandmother and, recently, great-grandmother. She was a selfless woman who always put others needs above her own. Holidays and family gatherings were the most special of times for her.
Loretta was very active and was always “ready to go” almost anywhere, anytime, without much notice. She loved to shop, dine out, “go for a ride” around Florida and travel. Loretta was a phenomenal cook and also loved to bake. A few of her hobbies were floral arranging, crafts and scrap booking. Loretta worked many years in childcare, caring for infants, and retired from La Petite Academy in 1998.
She was preceded in death by her siblings, Tony Holley and Drenda Raines.
Survivors include her beloved husband of 58 years, Norman Beier Jr.; sons, Bill (Debbie Sobik) Beier, Ben (Angie) Beier and Neal (Melonie) Beier; brother, Victor Holley; five grandchildren; and one great-grandchild.
Visitation will be held at 11 a.m., Saturday, Aug. 22, at Woodlawn Funeral Home, 400 Woodlawn Cemetery Road, Gotha. Service will follow at noon.
Arrangements entrusted to Woodlawn Memorial Park & Funeral Home, Gotha.
