April 9, 1947 ˜ September 13,

Lorretta Carol (Dallman) Thomas, age 72, passed peacefully at home, surrounded by her loved ones, in Vancouver, WA. She was loved by all who knew her.
Lorretta was a modern day renaissance woman. She was well-read, a published author, an avid gardener, scored a hole-in-one, and a bowler. Most importantly, she was a loving mother and grandmother who taught her children the value of hard work.
Lorretta’s life became complete when she met and married her soul mate, Charlie Thomas. Married for twenty-five years, they spent every day loving one another.
Always organized and prepared, “I’ve got a list.” was often heard around the house.
Celebration of Life services will be held October 27th at 12:30-2:30 p.m. at Royal Oaks Country Club, 8917 NE Fourth Plain Blvd., Vancouver, WA 98662.

Whenever I think of you, Lorretta the image is always the same. I see you coming down the hall toward my office at the end of the workday.
You wear a warm, peaceful and girlishly sweet smile on your face while walking hand in hand with Chuck in his Army uniform. You are both beaming with pride, completely focused on one another, each and every time he picked you up after work.
We are lucky enough to be neighbors with Lorretta and Chuck. Thank you for being such thoughtful and helpful neighbors. For stopping by to say hello with your pups, for sharing from your garden. For caring about all of the neighbors in our friendly little group.
Thank you Lorretta for making this world a warmer, lovlier, and far better place . . . by just being you.

As a wife, mother, sister, Aunt, and best friend, she was my heart and sole. I wanted nothing more than to be with her. We always agreed, come grow old with me, the best is yet to be. Dejectedly she was ripped from my arms by cancer. We will not have the golden years together.
I will forever morn the loss of my best friend.
I love you, Lorretta Carol Thomas, my kindred spirit.
Your loving Husband Charlie

Loretta, you will sure be missed! You're smiling face, kind nature, and compassionate demeanor to our family will never be forgotten! You were an amazing neighbor, with a garden as beautiful as your soul; every harvest time you always shared the fruits of your labor, and every chrsitmas time, you always blessed us with a beautifully prepared gift, and for that, we thank you with our whole hearts! May you forever rest in paradise!

Charles "Chuck", our hearts and prayers go out to you in this time of great loss and sorrow. May the care and love of those around you provide comfort and peace to get you through the days ahead. We are here for you should you ever need anything!

Much Love,
The Tudela's
