Our beloved Mother departed this earth Nov 10, 2021. We take great comfort in knowing she was met by our Father Arvin “Ed” Whitt and other beloved family members in heaven. Loretta Jean Whitt was born September 8 1945 in St. Paul, Minnesota. She journeyed to Sacramento, California in the spring of 1962 with her family.

They were married for 52 years prior to his death in 2016. She was a wonderful wife and mother. She was always there to support our family in anything and everything. She always made the holidays special with her home cooked meals and special home made Birthday Cakes. She always made sure during our grade school years she participated in both of our class celebrations with home made treats and just being present. She handmade and sewed our Halloween costumes.
