Loretta Enlow, age 86, passed away peacefully at home in her sleep April 19, 2019. She was a truly devout Catholic who always had a bright smile and kind word to offer all those she came into contact.

Loretta crocheted many an afghan for friends and family. She also enjoyed an occasional excursion to the casino as well as shopping and lunch dates with her niece, Nikki Erdelyi.

She was preceded in death by her son Eddie Enlow, Jr., parents Joseph John and Anna Lorraine Gubach Yancik, and siblings Alice Ballweg, Mary Ann Harmening, Richard Yancik, Tom Yancik, and Charles “Chico” Yancik.
