Loretta attended St. Mary's Catholic School in Le Center. She was united in marriage September 18, 1939, to Isidore 'Tug' Clinton, at St. Mary's Catholic Church, Le Center. Tug and Loretta were life-long members of Immaculate Conception Catholic Church, Marysburg (a country parish by Lake Washington). She was an active member of the Marysburg CCW and the American Legion Auxiliary #207, Cleveland, MN. She maintained a wonderful work ethic throughout her life, being a farm wife, homemaker and also working outside the home. Throughout the years, she worked for Spors, Brinktuns, Larson Industries and Green Giant. Loretta grew up with five siblings, on a farm, just outside of Le Center. After their marriage, Tug and Loretta lived in St. Peter and Cleveland, MN. Her husband served during WW II, and during that time, she moved home to assist her Father and raise her 2 youngest brothers (her Mother had passed away the same year). After WWII, they purchased the family farm. They spent the rest of their life working the farm and raising a family. Loretta enjoyed jigsaw puzzles, Twins baseball, bird watching and was known for her wonderful apple pie and jams. She is survived by her children, (Rev.) Kevin Clinton of New Prague, and Martha (Don) Weisgram of Madison Lake; by her grandson, Michael Weisgram of Madison Lake, and many nieces and nephews. Loretta was preceded in death by her parents, husband, and infant daughter Mary; by her siblings George Blaschko, Veronica (Blaschko) Odenthal Gerardy, Alice (Blaschko) Frassel, Lawrence Blaschko, and Eugene Blaschko. We are grateful for her long life and the friendship and care of so many people. In lieu of flowers Loretta''s family prefers memorials be directed
