Gunn, Loretta Mary
October 19, 1927
to July 2, 2014
Beloved wife, mother and grandmother. A long-time resident of Green Bay, Loretta passed away after a short illness at home in De Pere, surrounded by her family.
Loretta was a loving mother and homemaker for her two children and husband of 58 years, Lloyd, who preceded her in death in 2009. She enjoyed working at the Brown County Chronicle, Paper Converting, Hobart Scale and H. C. Prange's merchandising department. After their working days were over, she and Lloyd volunteered helping children learn to read.
Loretta enjoyed many summers with her family in Door County, Wis. and summer family camping trips around the Upper Midwest. Every fall through the years, she enjoyed rooting for the Green Bay Packers. She was a long-time member and supporter of St. Mary of the Angels' community.
Her kindness, wit and wisdom were present to the end. Despite challenges in her younger life, the majority of her life included fun times and was filled with grace and love.
Loretta is survived by her son, Daniel Gunn, and Mary; daughter Peggy Gunn, and Tom Peterson; granddaughter Sarah, and Armin Peterson; grandson Kurt, and Kim Gunn, grandchildren, Emily, August and Josie; along with many other loving and supportive relatives.
The family wishes to thank Dr. Jason Hoppe and staff members of Brook Park Apartments, Nicolet Highlands, Interim Health Care, Unity Hospice and St. Mary of the Angels for their loving attention and care for Loretta.
Loretta lived her life with dignity, grace and faith. The family will hold private services and interment. Memorials preferred to St. Mary of the Angels' endowment fund.
