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.
Loretta is welcomed by her son Robert “Bobby” Raines, daughter Maxine Grayson, grandson Shaun Raines and son-in-law Thomas McWilliams. She also gets to have family time now with brother and his wife, Charles Bemboom and bride Dortha Lorene Boten, brother Herbert Bemboom, and her parents and grandparents.
Leaving to remember and miss her are her children; Victoria Raines, Popular Bluff, MO, Robin Stewart and husband Bryan Stewart, Bronson, KS, and Mary McWilliams, Lamar, MO. She also had those who called her grandma; Patrick, Alexandria, Logan, and Miranda (Vicky’s crew), John and Emily, (Robin’s crew) and Libby, Rachel and Michael (Mary’s crew). She was also blessed with the name Granny by seven great-grandchildren. Loretta also has a baby brother, Francis Bemboom, of Marshall MO.
Growing up we have fond memories of family get togethers with our big city cousins (Kansas City), that we love and adore today, Wanda, Laura, and Charlie Joe. Mom, Grandma, Granny, Aunt, and friend you will be loved and missed always.
