Loretta Ellen Herr was born on Feb. 15, 1919, in Greenwood, to Albert and Ellen (nee Baily) Herr.

She moved back home to Greenwood, where she resided in the Black River Apartments until entering the Clark County Health Care Center on Jan. 12, 2007. She was a member of St. Mary’s Catholic Church. She was a quiet and peaceful soul, who loved watching nature, especially birds and squirrels, from her windows. She will be dearly missed.

Preceding her in death were her parents; one sister, Grace Abel; and two brothers, Joseph Herr and Francis Herr.
