Anna Loretta Slates died Monday, March 6th in Oklahoma City. She was a resident of Oklahoma City, Oklahoma at the time.
Born June 8th, 1935 in Wichita, Kansas, she was the 7th of 11 children. As a young woman she worked as a secretary and held numerous other positions until she received her LPN degree. In 1954, she gave birth to her only child Pamela Sue.
Loretta will be remembered by her family as a loving mother, grandmother and great-grandmother. This is evidenced in her home which is decorated almost solely with pictures of her family. She could often be found with at least one great grandchild in her room playing. She loved to spoil them, giving into their every desire. Nothing was off limits. She loved to take them to the zoo, do craft projects with them, and let them eat as many icees as they wanted. She loved to say that some of her greatest blessings in life called her GiGi.
She will be greatly missed by her family.
