   Loretta Louise (Bemboom) Penner, of Lamar, MO passed away on Monday, February 24, 2020, at her home.

   Loretta was born June 1, 1944 to John and Antoinette (Distler) Bemboom. She was born and raised in Jefferson City, MO. She started and raised a family of five in various parts of Missouri until finally settling in Lamar, MO and has been a resident for the past 40 plus years. She worked raising her family with different jobs; cook, waitress, store clerk, and farmer. The job that she loved the most was being a mom and taking care of her family, close and far away.
