Obituary of Lotetta Styring

Loretta was born on October 2, 1918 and passed peacefully on SundayAugust 6, at Iroquois Nursing Home.  Loretta was a native of Syracuse and was the daughter of Clara and Charles Bittner who made their home at 110 Michaels Avenue.  Loretta was married to Arthur Styring on August 10, 1940 at Assumption Church and made their home in Eastwood at 128 Forest Hill Drive.

Loretta was predeceased by her husband Arthur (Styring) as well as 10 siblings;  Ann, Anthony, Bernice, Clara, Jeaninne, Lucy, Esther, Marge, Mary, Rita.  She is survived by her children Barbara (Lee), Bob (Diane), Betty (Don), her grandchildren Renee (Hill), Chris (Kelly), Ryan, Leanne, one great grandchild (Nora) as well as many nieces, nephews and cousins.

After many years in the work force (Acme Markets), Loretta's dream of staying home was fulfilled. She loved to cook and bake, was a talented sewer and loved to her garden.  Loretta was awarded two NYS Fair ribbons; one in culinary for her bread and butter pickles and one in arts and crafts for a beautiful Christmas Wreath.

Loretta loved her family and friends, picnics, parties, holidays and watching over her grandchildren.  Always willing to lend a helping hand to anyone, offer some words of advice or provide a gentle touch, Loretta was a caregiver to several children in her later years. 

She loved to play cards, board games, singing and listening to music, bingo and slot machines and was an avid NY YANKEES fan.............especially Derek Jeter!

Loretta had a beautiful smile and a wonderful sense of humor, made the world a happier place to live and will be dearly missed!  She is the key to the magic toy shop; the prize in the cracker jack box.

In lieu of flowers contributions may be made to the Francis House @ 108 Michaels Ave.  Syracuse, New York, former residents of the Bittner Family.

Calling hours will be held at Blessed Sacrament Church (James Street) on Thursday from 9:30 to 10:30AM followed by Mass of Christian Burial. Burial will be in the Assumption Cemetery.
