Loretta Elliott passed away peacefully at home on Nov. 29, 2017, with her family by her side.
She was born to Harold and Ida (Martin) Irwin in Berkeley, Calif., but grew up in Hood River, Ore., graduating from Hood River High School in 1959. She moved to The Dalles, Ore., in 1979 and then to Dallesport, Wash., in 1982.
She was a loving mother of two children: Monty Hannon and Cindy (Hannon) McHargue; three grandchildren, Chrissy Zaugg-Williams, Tori Wilkins and Nicole Grace; and five great-grandchildren, Cody, Ella, Aralyn, Rylie and Azrielle.
She married her soulmate and love of her life in March 1994, and enjoyed traveling with him until his passing in August 2000.
She enjoyed dancing, painting, crossword puzzles, watching the “Golden Girls,” traveling, playing on her computer, and her family.
Loretta was preceded in death by her husband Gary Elliott; a son; brother Roy Irwin and her parents.
She survived by her daughter and son-in-law, grandchildren, great-grandchildren, sister-in-law, and nephews.
A celebration of life will be held at a later date.
A special thank you to Dr. Judy Richardson, Dr. Sonia Sheumann and Heart of Hospice for the loving care they showed Loretta.
