Loretta L. Quintard was born Jan. 10, 1943 in Harrison, Neb. to Merrill A. and Gertrude "Gerty" E. (Jordan) Quintard, the fifth child - joining her siblings: James Quintard, Bruce Quintard, H. Lloyd Quintard, and Barb Quintard-Joss. Living in rural Sioux County, Neb., she attended a small country school until she and her sister were enrolled in the Assumption Academy in Chadron, Neb. Loretta returned to Sioux County High School, in Harrison, Neb. where she graduated.

On June 1, 1963, Loretta married Robert L. "Bob" Serres. Bob and Loretta traveled, working various places, in their early marriage, and chose to settle at the Serres Ranch in Sioux County, Neb., where they started their family: Renee' Lynn, Cory James, Carol Jean, and Sandra Rose.

In 1973 Loretta and Bob moved their family to Lusk, Wyo., where Loretta worked in various businesses in the community, including Niobrara County School District, cleaning at the local hospital and motels, and babysitting numerous children in Niobrara County. Another task we all recall about Loretta was her using her cosmetology skills for her girlfriends. Loretta was well known in the community for her willingness and strong strength in helping anyone she could. She had great devotion for her husband and her children. She will be greatly missed by her many friends and family.
