Loretta N. Kruppenbach, 81, of Denver, passed away Sunday, Nov. 18, 2018 at Hospice & Community Care in Mount Joy.

Born in Reading, she was the daughter of the late Warren F. and Margaret E. (Boyer) Steely, and the loving wife of 22 years of Lloyd A. Kruppenbach.

Loretta played keyboard and sang back-up in a small music group called Lost & Found with her husband. She enjoyed traveling; the Swiss Alps, Italy, and other European excursions meant a lot to her. She was a member of St. Paul’s E.C. Church in Reamstown.

Loretta’s sincere, quiet and gentle nature attracted others and she quickly made friends from strangers. She was a talented seamstress and for many years loved to sew clothes for her granddaughter. There was something special about her pumpkin pies and cookies, her love was the secret ingredient.

In addition to her husband, Loretta is survived by two daughters: Cheri A. Borelli, wife of Charles of Reading; and Brenda J. High, wife of Marvin of Laureldale; a granddaughter: Stephanie L. Borelli, fiancée of Jerrold A. Reber, Reading; and a brother: Lee W. Steely, husband of Patricia of Montana.

She was predeceased by brother: Carroll N. Steely.

Services were held Nov. 24 at Good Sipler Funeral & Cremation Centre, Reamstown. Pastor Matt Hill officiated.
