June 23, 1974 - January 28, 2021
UTICA - Loretta Lynn Booth, age 46, passed away on Thursday, January 28, 2021 at MVHS at St. Elizabeth Medical Center after a long battle. Born in Utica on June 23, 1974, Loretta was the daughter of Linda L. (Dewhurst) Banks and the late Cecil W. Booth. She also knew the love of her late step-father, John Banks who treated her like a daughter. Raised and educated in Utica she was a graduate of T.R. Proctor High School. Loretta met many wonderful people, including parents and children while carrying out her job as a crossing guard at the corner of Columbus School, a position she enjoyed via the Traffic Division of the Utica Police Department, up until her illness. A kindhearted woman, she enjoyed the simple times at home with her family, especially cooking and baking. She also held a special adoration for her nieces and nephews. Her family marveled at her strength during all her health obstacles and adversities that she went through alone. She is survived by her mother, Linda; her siblings and their loved ones, Brenda Booth and Louis Martinez; Thomas Booth and fiancée Mary Bertke, and Terry Booth and Megan Rienzo; her many adored nieces, nephews, great-nieces, great-nephews, cousins, and many special friends. The family extends their thanks to the Utica Police Department for their care and compassion during a difficult time. Visitation will be held Monday, February 8, 2021 from 3:30-4:30 at the Eannace Funeral Home, Inc., 932 South St., corner of Hammond Ave. Loretta’s funeral service and Celebration of Life will commence on Monday afternoon at 4:30 pm at the funeral home immediately upon conclusion of visitation. Social distancing and registration for contact tracing will be implemented. Also, a mask covering your nose and mouth will be required. Interment will take place in Norwich Corners Cemetery at the convenience of the family. During this time of social distancing that we are all experiencing, please take a moment to connect with Loretta’s family through the “Memories” section of her obituary. Our prayers go out to all as a sign of our continued support.
