    Notes 
    • BIOGRAPHY: Loretta was best known for owning and operating Peggy's Restaurant in Kings Mountain, North Carolina. She and her then husband, James "Bill" Owens, bought the restaurant from her sister, Peggy Chaney, in 1973 and ran it until 1996 when she sold it to her sister, Sherry Chaney Short. In her latter years Loretta started wrote poems for her sisters and friends on special occasions, surprising everyone as she had never shown an inclination or affinity for poetry.

      DEATH: Loretta died suddenly after a brief illness. She had fallen and sustained injuries to her wrist and knee, and was hospitalized at Cleveland Medical Center in Shelby, North Carolina. While there it was discovered that she had a weak heart and an aneurysm on her stomach. Doctors were reluctant to operate on her knee because of this, but in the end decided that they had to take the risk. She came through the surgery without complications, and was sent home.

      While at home Loretta had begun physical therapy and within a week was regaining some of her mobility. A week to the day of being released from the hospital she became sick on her stomach, and afterward complained of some chest pains. Her sister, Peggy, called the paramedics, who arrived and checked Loretta out, and decided that she was, perhaps, having some problems due to a chronic hernia (Loretta insisted that this was the case). 10-15 minutes after the paramedics had gone, Peggy found Loretta dead in her bed, apparently (in the opinion of her doctors) the victim of a massive stroke cause by a blood clot.

      BURIAL: Loretta was buried beside her sister, Sis, and with her parents, Robert Lattie and Winnie Moss Chaney, in Mountain Rest Cemetery, Kings Mountain, North Carolina.
