She received an honourary fellowship from the University of Sudbury (Laurentian University in 1999) having received many certificates in the past for courses she took with the Ontario Federation of Friendship Centres in Toronto. Loretta was very involved with the inception of the alternate justice program in the city of Sudbury. She worked alongside many of the judicial personnel in Sudbury in her role as native courtworker that she held for 23 years with the N'Swakamok Friendship Centre.

Her great sense of humour will be missed by all who knew her.
