Loretta T. Christoforetti

October 3, 1933 — May 14, 2018

Loretta T. (Cardone) Christoforetti, 84, of Attica passed away peacefully on May 14, 2018 at Crossroads House in Batavia. She was born October 3, 1933 in Nanticoke, PA to the late Angelo and Anna (Barshauski) Christie (Christoforetti). In addition to her parents, Loretta is predeceased by her sister; Delphine Croy.

She is survived by her children; Donna (Chris Green) Almeter of Canaserega, Rosanne (Colin) McGovern of Henrietta, Maury (Mike LaVarnway) Fountain of Attica, Michael (Sydney) Cardone of NC., Dominic (Chris) Cardone of MD., Daniel Cardone of Attica; brother Angelo Christoforetti of PA.; 12 grandchildren and 1 great-grandchild.

Loretta had just enjoyed a beautiful celebration for Mother’s Day surrounded by her family. She raised 6 very musical and faith filled children so there was lots of singing and Praise to God. She also had a strong devotion to Mary so her family had a May crowning with lots of flowers. Loretta was a Master Gardener and had many beautiful gardens during her life. But she’d cut the flowers and for her entire life used them to adorn the altars of every church she belonged to. She was in charge of the May Crowning every year so it was very special to her. She was the head of the sodality, the Blue Army teaching many young women the virtue of chastity and emulating Mary as a role model of how to love and honor her Son Jesus. Loretta was a Home Health Care Provider and housed many elderly and disabled people over the years and also in her “spare time” cleaned homes and tended the gardens of many elderly in the neighborhood. She was a foster mother to several teens, and many others called her mom. Loretta took in anyone, some stayed for days, some for years. Loretta was a member of The Altar and Rosary Society and washed and ironed all the altar linens and taught Religious Education from the time she got married up into a few years ago. She never stopped teaching the faith to anyone she came in contact with and was an incredibly loved mother and grandmother. Loretta will be so missed but her family rejoices that she is home in Heaven seeing the face of God and can finally rest.
