Lauretta was a member of Faith Chapel.

She enjoyed sewing, her bible studies and teaching Sunday School, which she had done for many years. She enjoyed spending time with her family and friends.

Lauretta is survived by her children, Peter F. Mack, Margaret (Gary) Aull and Janet (Dirk) Otte; grandchildren, Christina Feest, Daniel Aull, Gary Otte and Malorie King; great-grandson, Mason King and her dear friend Holly. She is further survived by other relatives and friends. Lauretta was preceded in death by her parents, husband, a sister and a brother.
