Loretta loved the dog of the house, Betty White, and loved indulging in great Italian food and any type of dessert. In her younger years, she was a volunteer at the St. Anthony's and St. Gabriel's Festivals, and when she got older, she loved eating her way through those same festivals and her beloved neighborhood of Little Italy Baltimore. She enjoyed listening to the classical, big band/swing, 1950's, and opera music channels everyday and calling to catch up with her friends and family. When she felt well enough, she used to enjoy going to Atlantic City, Crab Feast bus trips and Bingo outings. She belonged to various Baltimore County Senior Centers. Loretta had a career as a saleswoman at a gown/formalwear shop on Eastern Avenue in Baltimore that she thoroughly enjoyed.
