Wishing we could be there for the service. I have many fond memories of Aunt Loretta. In fact, the Christmas tree that we put up in our house each year had been hers and I love that we have that family tie. Every time I would see her she would remind me that she is my dad's Godmother. I love how much that meant to her! Much love and prayers coming your way from Kansas City, MO.
I am so sorry for your loss. My mother, Virginia was always so happy to have the sustained Campbell family ties that Loretta and Del helped to keep going. God bless you all with comfort and peace.
I have so many fond memories of Aunt Loretta. Visiting her and Uncle Delbert on the farm when we were little up to the times of taking mom and dad to see her in her Marshalltown apartment. I will miss seeing her during my excusions back to Iowa. I love you Aunt Loretta! God bless you and your family as they live with the many memories of your lively presence in their lives.
Loretta was an amazing lady! We got to know her when she lived in the townhome next to my folks. We all loved her!

Loretta and Pauline spending time in the dining room at Southridge. Unlike all those years of fixing and serving dinners at the Legion Hall, this time they didn't have to prepare the meal. They were great friends for over sixty years, I'm sure they will enjoy each other's company again, along with Delbert and Lloyd.
Thinking of Linda and the family. Jerry Kinder

I’m sorry to hear of your mothers passing! She was an elegant lady and loved her family! I brought her Communion on the first Sunday of the month. She told me she had the best daughter in the world and bragged about her grand children as well. She was a beautiful spirit and certainly loved the Lord. Blessings during this difficult time of isolation! Sincerely Julie Miller
