Loretta Gregorich

April 7, 1962 - May 25, 2012


Loretta Sparky

Passed away peacefully on May
25, 2012 at Jubilee Manor after
a lengthy battle with cancer.
She is survived by her husband
Edward and her reasons for
fighting for so long, her children,
Jacob and Emma.

She is also survived by her mother
Bernice Posnikoff, sister Nancy, brothers Ray (Yvonne) and
Mike (Mary Anne), best friend Susan Roth and many more
family and friends.

Loretta’s love for her family was obvious, as was her love
of art which came through in her drawing, gardening and
decorating. She also loved the outdoors, singing, playing
soccer and spending time with her many friends.

Although this part of her journey has ended, she did not
go through it alone. Our love goes out to all of those people
who spent time with Loretta, sent well wishes and gave hugs
or encouragement along the way.

Special thanks to Dr. Malpass and the girls on the cancer
ward, Dr. Barbour, Nelson Home Support and the staff
at Jubilee Manor for making Loretta’s final days very

“Thank you Loretta”

From: Rebecca Roth
Relation: A close family friend

My memories of Aunty Loretta are all amazing. I think of a kind, gentle hearted spirit that was very good at making the people around her feel comfortable. I will miss her shoulder rubs, her all encompassing hugs, and her eyes that spoke sincerity to whoever she was giving attention to. I love Loretta and hearing her and my mom tell me their childhood stories over and over again never got dull!! To Uncle Ed, Jacob and Emma – you can be sad and grieve, because you miss the wonderful woman who so easily loved others with all she had, but at the same time, you really can eventually find comfort in the fact that she is walking side by side with Jesus in Heaven, with the God who created her and loved her first. She is no longer in pain, she can express herself freely and she will ALWAYS be present in the wonderful memories she has left behind. I love you all so much, and I am praying for you guys!! Turn your eyes to Jesus, because he is right there beside you, he sees you in all your strength and weakness, and he loves you unconditionally through it all.

The loss of her for me is almost too much for words so I can only imagine what you are going through. I loved her because she was my sister and we have been confiding in each other for our lifetime. You know that I love you all and are praying for some peace through this. May the Lord Bless you during this time and please know that she is with him now filled with the love that He gives. Until we see again lots of love from me to you and goodbye to my buddy in this earthly plain. Susu
