Loretta Marlene Bennett

On Thursday, March 28, 2024, Loretta Marlene Bennett donned robes of immortality and was carried by ministering angels into the arms of Jesus.

Her 90 year journey on earth consisted of much sacrifice, unconditional love, unwavering prayer, sweet soprano-voice singing, Bible study and teaching Sunday School. Her gentle spirit and loving kindness were known to all who had the privilege of being in her presence. 

While her daughters, Evelyn Romero and Sandra Andrews, were telling her goodbye on this earth, a host of family and friends who had gone on before her were saying hello to her for eternity.
