Austintown - Loretta J. Horn, 79, passed away on Wednesday morning, June 15, 2022 at Austinwoods Nursing Center, with family by her side.
Loretta was born August 25, 1942 in Youngstown, Ohio. She was raised on Youngstown's west side and graduated from Chaney High School in 1960. After graduation, she worked as a telephone operator and then in the cafeteria for Washington School and West Elementary School. Loretta later moved to Houston, Texas, living there for the next 20 years, working as a secretary. While in Texas, she was a member of the Bread of Life Church. Upon returning to the Youngstown area, she worked as a receptionist for Rhiel Supply until her retirement.
In her free time, she enjoyed word searches, crossword puzzles, and was a voracious reader. A dedicated and loving mother and grandmother, Loretta's biggest joy came from spending time with her family and her fur grandchildren.
