She is survived by her much-loved family, daughters Arlis (Marcel) Shivak and Debra (Duane) Cookson; grandchildren Jodi (Barry & family) Kydd, Krista (Brent) Evans, Sean Shivak (Shelby Braun), Tenille Shivak (Mike Labelle), and Michael (Liza) Shivak; great-grandchildren Jaiden Evans (Carter Kidd), Griffin Evans, Janelle Evans, Connor Labelle, and Lucca Shivak. Loretta is also survived by her siblings Vivian (Ernie) Millar, Opal (Ron) Hein, Alvin (Marjorie) Sandvold, Karen Smith, and Roald (Mary) Draycott; Stuart’s brother Rae (Betty) Morton; as well as many nieces, nephews, and friends. A family Graveside Service will be held at a later date and Loretta will rest with her husband in the Morton family plot in the Lumsden Cemetery.
