Loretta Hoard passed away peacefully on 12-3-2019 at the age of 80. She made her way into the arms of her Savior whom she looked forward to seeing as well as all who went before her.
Loretta was born in Salmon, Idaho July 11, 1939 to Ray and Ora (Babe) McDonald.
Loretta was the oldest to seven children. The family moved to Sandy in 1956 and she attended Sandy Union High School graduating in 1958 along with her sister Evelyn Proctor.
When Loretta was in primary school the folks moved so much that she had to start first grade over, therefore, going all the way through her schooling with Evelyn. Folks thought they were twins but that was not the case.
Loretta went to school to be an LPN and did her work at the old Rest Harbor Care Home.
She met Clarence Hoard, Jr and they were married August 31, 1968. They relocated from Colton to Enterprise in 1983. They bought their place in Lostine in 1985 where she currently lived.
Loretta worked at A Country Place on Pete's Pond Restaurant as a preparer and cook. She enjoyed the hard work and the many locals who came to dine. Loretta later went to work for Ace Hardware in Enterprise in 1993 and retired from there.
Loretta's hobbies were needlepoint, sewing and quilting. She was known for flowers and her love of gardening.
Loretta was preceded in death by Ray and Ora (Babe) McDonald, Larry McDonald, Evelyn Proctor as well as her husband Clarence Hoard, Jr. and her brother in law Willie Proctor and sister in law Montell McDonald.
She leaves behind Gary (Ellen) McDonald of Vancouver, WA. Richard McDonald of Irrigon, Oregon. Dolores (Wayne) Morrison of Sandy, and Donna McDonald of Sandy. She also leaves behind many nieces and nephews. Her step-children are Wayne Hoard of Junction City, David Hoard of Brush Prairie, Wash., Carl Hoard of Rainier, Wash, Jane Conway of Newberg and Donna Haggstrom of Sandy.
