Loretta Mary Haywood
We are so sad to announce the passing of Loretta Mary Haywood on April 19, 2021.
She is survived by her children, Robert Haywood, Marlene (George) Pankewich and Doug (Cindy) Haywood, grandchildren, great grandchildren and nieces, nephews, family and friends who will miss her so much. She was predeceased by her husband of more than 60 years, Joe, her son Ken, her parents Albert and Evelyn Michaud and her three brothers and six sisters.
Loretta will be remembered for her sense of humor and her love of games – she was a formidable opponent at cards and boardgames and she loved to play BINGO! She was a wonderfully skilled seamstress, knitter and crocheter. She created so many beautiful pieces for friends and family and to donate to the Battlefords Union Hospital Gift Shop for fundraising.
She worked for many years as an LPN at the Saskatchewan Hospital in North Battleford until her retirement and after retirement she and Joe enjoyed travelling.
She was blessed to have lived independently to the age of 98 and passed peacefully after a brief illness.
We will miss her greatly, but are comforted by our memories.
There will be no funeral service due to Covid19 restrictions, but a memorial service will be held at a later date.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Canadian Cancer Society.
