AMERO, Loretta FrancisJan 15, 1962 – Jan 20, 2022 We are greatly saddened to announce the passing of Loretta Francis Amero (nee Ketchum) on January 20, 2022 in Leduc, AB. She passed away peacefully, but far too young, after a courageous fight with cancer. Thankfully, she was always surrounded by family and friends and never felt alone. Loretta’s family was her life. She enjoyed being in the sunshine, camping, biking, swimming, and crafting; it was a bonus if it was with her family and friends. She was literally and figuratively our biggest cheerleader. She is lovingly remembered and missed by her husband and her true love of 40 years, Kevin; her children: Christine (Danny) Sych, Murray (Jen), and Chad (Brittny); as well as her beloved grandchildren: Hailey, Carter, Sierra, Harlowe, Ryker, Asher, and Everlee; and siblings: Rick (Maureen) Ketchum, Linda (Monty) Trent, Carol Ketchum and Barb Ketchum. She is predeceased by her parents Lofton (Frances) and Brenda Ketchum, and her siblings: Christina and Gordon Ketchum. We would like to thank her incredible homecare team as well as the staff at the Leduc Hospital (unit 22) for treating her with compassion and a gentleness that matched what she showed others. There will be no service, however, in the Spring, we will be sharing information on a celebration of life in her honour to take place within the Leduc area.
