Loretta Mae Reynolds, age 78, passed away peacefully in her home on June 20,2018. She was born June 28, 1939, in Billings MT to Archie Lyle Meek and Hazel Hope Henry.

Loretta worked for the Uintah School District while her children were young, and because of her many talents, she held a variety of positions before retiring from the Weston Hotels.
Loretta loved softball, and played on and managed many teams where she made lifelong friends before trading her interests for those of her family.
She loved her family above all. Whatever their interests were became her hobbies. She rarely missed anything that her kids were involved in and never hesitated to jump in the car and travel any distance to encourage and support her children and grandchildren.
Loretta was a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints and served wherever and whenever asked.
Loretta is survived by her husband, Ned, brothers, Gene (Joan) Meek, Gary (Claudia) Reynolds, sister, Audra (Chuck) Manos, daughter Lynda (Larry) Tusoni, son, Josh (Sheree) Reynolds, daughter, Joni (Eddie) Blandford, daughter in law, Lisa (Steve) Evans, 12 grandchildren, and 7 great grandchildren.
