Loretta Coral Cattaneo
December 26, 1948 - August 15, 2021
Life-long Santa Cruz Resident
Loretta Cattaneo passed peacefully after battling complications from a stroke she suffered eight years ago. She was 72 years old. For the last several years, Loretta continued to have a good sense of humor and remained spirited. Keeping busy with coloring books that helped with therapy. She looked forward to visits from family and friends.
Loretta was a long time Santa Cruz resident, born and raised. She attended local schools. She was employed at Plantronics for many years.
She married Bill Cattaneo in September 1971. They both later worked together in the restaurant business. Loretta was happy to be hostess for their restaurant, Rancho Del Mar Cafe, in Aptos for more than 20 years. There she met many local customers, that she looked forward to seeing on her weekend shift.
Loretta loved the Christmas season, and her birth month. That was when Loretta's talents for being hostess shined, celebrating with family and friends at her home. She and Bill made spectacular meals, that guests fondly cherished. Loretta decorated throughout her whole house for the season.
Loretta was the only daughter born into a family of four brothers. She is survived by Doyle Singer, Dan Singer, Larry (Connie) Singer, and Mike Singer.
She will be greatly missed by her aunt, cousins, nieces, nephews and extended family. Loretta is preceded in death by her parents, Daniel and Coral Singer; husband Bill Cattaneo, and nephew John Singer.
Loretta's family would like to thank the staff that cared for her at Pacific Coast Manor in Capitola. A special thanks to good friend Mallory Sims, who looked after Loretta's placements and care after suffering her stroke; as well as niece, Radawna Spencer, who gave extra attention, care and a voice for Loretta.
The family has no memorial service planned at this time.

Loretta will definitely be missed by our family. She was my sister-in-law. Who I admired, from the first time I met her. So caring she was for her family and many friends. She loved to cook, and shared those meals often. She was a people person, for sure. Her stroke took quite a lot out of her. But, I only hope that Loretta is now united with her loving parents; her husband Billy; and her best friend, Debbie. Take care, Loretta. You are free now!
