Obituary for Loretta M Whitten

Loretta M. Whitten, 74, of Mount Carmel, passed away Thursday July 20, 2017 at Select Specialty Hospital in Evansville IN with her loving family by her side. She was born June 23, 1943 in Wabash County, the daughter of George Burton and Geraldine (Montgomery) Burton. She married Gilbert Whitten on March 31, 1962 and he survives. Loretta was a loving wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother.  She loved being a United States Air Force wife and exploring the places they were stationed.  She was particularly proud that her husband retired as a Master Sargent.  Loretta enjoyed traveling, especially to Holland, Germany, France, Austria and Belgium. She was a licensed cosmetologist and worked at the IGA store in the greeting card department. As Loretta’s health declined, she accepted what she was given and never complained.  During her final hours, she took great comfort in visits from her grandchildren and having her family by her side.  She will be deeply missed by all who knew her. Loretta will be remembered by her husband of fifty five years, Gilbert; daughters Toni Marie (Jack) Dunn of Mount Carmel, Jeanie Renee (Kevin) Hallam of Shawnee OK; three grandchildren; four step grandchildren; four great-grandchildren; six step great-grandchildren; sister, Connie (Jerry) Zumbahlem; special family friend, Kevin Michels and many loved nieces and nephews. Loretta was preceded in death by her parents; one brother, Howard Burton. Family and friends are invited to gather for a memorial visitation 11:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m., Tuesday, July 25, 2017 in the Chapel of Keepes Funeral Home.  A memorial service will follow visitation at 1:00 p.m. in the Chapel of Keepes Funeral Home with Pastor Jim Saunders officiating.  Burial will take place at a later date.   Keepes Funeral Home is serving the family with the arrangements.  To view Loretta’s tribute wall, leave condolences and purchase flowers for the Whitten family, please visit www.KeepesFuneralHome.com.
