For several years, she worked at Coleman Products and R&A Manufacturing until her retirement.

Loretta was a member of Trinity Lutheran Church where she was very active with bible study classes, Ladies Aide, and volunteering to help where needed.  Her Church family brought her companionship and strengthened her faith.

Family was her greatest joy. She loved spending time with her grandchildren and great-grandchildren, attending games, concerts, birthdays and other celebrations. Knowing just how to make each of her twelve great-grandchildren feel special and help them accomplish their goals was her greatest gift.  She was a caregiver, teacher, nurse, spritual guide and freind to all of them.

To describe her as a busy lady would be an understatement. She enjoyed spending time with family and friends, church activities, taking care of her home and yard, bus trips and keeping current with her Ipad. Her accomplishments were amazing.

Loretta is survived by son, David (Barb) Patz and daughter, Cheryl (Chuck) Bushmaker, five grandchildren, Mindy (Ryan) West, Alisa (Tyler) Gross, Raymond (Tabatha) Yoder, Jenny (Jason) Harvey and Melissa (Dakota) Lueskow along with twelve great-Grandchildren.  She is further survived by her siblings, Donald (Betty) Marquardt, Leslie (Pat) Marquardt, Myron (Carol) Marquardt and Eunice Nasgovitz.

She is preceded in death by her parents, Lawrence and Martha (Jandrey) Marquardt, her husband Richard Patz, brother Raymond Marquardt and brother-in-law, Russell Nasgovitz.

Funeral services will be held at Trinity Lutheran Church, Coleman, Wisconsin on Thursday, Oct. 14, visitation from 9:00 AM-11:00 AM, service at 11 AM with Pastor Matthew Langebartels officiating.  Burial to follow at First Baptist Church Cemetary of Pound.

The family would like to offer heartfelt thanks to the Marinette County Sheriff Department, First responders, UW Med Flight staff, and UW Hospital staff and especially her "team" in Neuro ICU that took such good care of her and were so supportive to all of her family.

She was a woman of strength and dignity and left her mark on so many of us.
