  15. Grammy Sue and family :

    To the Chianone family….my deepest sympathy. She was a special lady who cherished her family. My prayers are with you at this time.

  16. Tony I am so sorry to hear this. I hope the Lord opens his arms wide for her. She seemed like such a special lady. I know you will miss her. Please don’t hesitate to let me know if there is anything at all that I can do to help ease your heart and mind during this difficult time.

  17. Loretta was born when I was 7 years old. She made me an aunt at that young age. I was baby sitter to her and her siblings for a long while until they moved to Ohio. But, I came to Ohio in summers to stay with and baby sit in the 1960’s. The oldest of the girls, she was the smartest and brightest. Always sassy and into something, but just as gentle and loving then, as she was for the rest of her life. My heart breaks for her family, Tony’s family and our entire family. Just as my other niece, “Trisha”, above, said, “Lorretta you will never be forgotten. l know you’re having a peaceful after life”, I believe that too. I only saw Loretta, last, in 2008, ironically, at my brother-in-law, Dan’s, funeral. I love you too Loretta and to all I am sad for the loss of our special, 1st niece, 1st grandchild and wonderful wife, mother and grandmother. She rests peacefully in the God’s arms and in the arms of all who passed before her. I have many wonderful memories. My love is still in my heart. Your Aunt Edyie

  18. Daisy Ann Houseknecht ' Kazmaier :

    God bless and keep you all safe I pray you can cope and Loretta was special to me just as special as she will always be through out eternity and her spirit in heaven never gone from our hearts I love her with all my heart I could write a book on our times together when we were younger the best days ever .Just as she always did her best as she and Tony raised their children together.

    Love YOU All
    Auntie and Great Auntie and Great Great Auntie
