Loretta G. Castro
December 29, 1920 – May 3, 2020

After 99 years of love, guidance and example the loving soul of our Loretta moved on to a well-deserved rest, filled with comfort. Our family learned by living example the true value of our lives, the importance of acceptance, and the inner strength to challenge the obstacles that would come our way. A family elder has moved on, yet the spirit of this remarkable woman remains in our souls and offers solace to our wounded hearts.

Loretta was a resident of Madera; she attended St. Joachim Catholic Church where she was a graduate of Madera Union High School. Loretta attended 4 C’s Business College and obtained her Associates Degree. She worked as a Legal Secretary for the Federal Courts of Los Angeles and for Fresno. For 40 years, Loretta was the director for Dial a Ride, a dispatcher for Madera Taxi, Dispatch and facility manager for Mayflower Moving Co in Tulare.

Loretta was the oldest living person on record with Spina Bifida at her 99 years of age.

Remembrances may be made to the Holy Family Table of St. Joachim Catholic Church.
