She was the wife of Richard E. Jackson of Red Lion to whom she married on March 8, 1958. Loretta was born in York Twp. on November 10, 1941, and was the daughter of the late Millard C. and Luella (Sterner) Raffensberger. Loretta worked as a secretary at the former AMP, Inc., retiring in 1998 after 33 years of service; she was a 50-year member of Winterstown United Methodist Church where she was very active volunteering in various ways within the church; a member of the Steam-o-Rama in Windsor.

Loretta was a wonderful wife to Richard, just celebrating 56 years together. She was a very caring and loving Mother and Grandmother who always put her family first. Loretta and Richard traveled exclusively to other countries which she really enjoyed but her favorite was to Ireland. She was an awesome cook who could take enough ingredients to feed three and make a meal in a very short time to feed five. Loretta also had a fondness for all animals. She will be greatly missed by anyone who knew and loved her. Online condolences may be offered at www.BurgFuneralHome.com
