Loretta Oliver

December 23, 1949 — February 29, 2024

Loretta Moore Oliver, loving mother of four daughters, sister, and friend, passed away at age 74 in Omaha, NE.

Throughout her early years, Loretta participated in drill team, church, excelled in academics, and loved to sing.  She also enjoyed the time she shared with her 4 beautiful daughters.  Loretta was known to make people laugh with her witty remarks, without even trying.

Loretta loved God and believed in the blood of Jesus Christ from a very early age. Attending church was instilled in her and her brother, Eugene, by their mother and they faithfully attended church every Sunday. Loretta had a beautiful singing voice and loved to sing in the choir and praise the Lord.

Her days included writing letters to family and friends, visits to Wal-Mart, the post office, library, bank, church concerts, and Joe Tess Fish in south Omaha. Loretta was frequently seen out and about by her family and friends where she was often greeted and well-received with love.
