Obituary of Loretta A Shields

Loretta A. Shields, at the age of 77, passed away March 4, 2020.  She was a resident of Westville, NJ.


She loved everything about life, especially her family.  Everyone called her Mrs. Claus during the holidays.  She was a very crafty woman, she crocheted everything under the sun and always had a book on her lap.  One of her favorite things was girls beach days, with her toes in the sand and a magazine in her hand.  She always had a kind word and a smile on her face. 


Loretta is the beloved wife of 61 cherished years to Richard Shields; devoted mother to the late Richard Shields and his wife Faith, Rhonda Shields (Kevin) and Joseph Shields (Gwen); loving grandmother to her favorite grandchildren Samantha, Ronald, Ashely, Casey Rose, Matthew and Katelyn; devoted great grandmother to Mackenzie, Kaden, Mason and Jase; spiritual sister to Barbara.   Loretta is also survived by many nieces, nephews, extended family and friends.

Loretta is predeceased by her parents Francis and Rosina (nee DiMuzio) Abel.
