Loretta M. Eaton

Loretta found her corner of paradise on earth after retiring from the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California, and moving to Woodland Park, Colorado with her husband Arnold. She took great delight in the deer, rabbits and foxes that visited, in providing breakfast for the many birds and squirrels, and in walking her beloved dogs through the woods and meadows.

Loretta was just as popular with the two-legged beings she encountered. She loved to visit with family, friends and neighbors, and the shopkeepers in town knew her first by her smile, then by her name. She was always concerned about the wellbeing of others, putting their concerns ahead of her own. All who met Loretta came away with a new friend, and she will be greatly missed.

She is survived by her daughter Linda and son Larry.
