Loretta McNall Obituary

With great sorrow and bittersweet gratitude we announce that Loretta L. McNall, 72, of Moravia, NY passed away Saturday June 10, 2023 at Northwoods Rehabilitation Center, Moravia NY after suffering a debilitating stroke March 23, 2022.  The past 15 months had not been the life Loretta wanted to live.

Loretta was the youngest of four born February 9, 1951 in Rapid City, SD a daughter of the late Kenneth & Leona (Stenseth) Muffat.  She was married to Gary McNall (divorced) at 18 years of age. They raised their family in Lead, SD with a 5 year stint in Newcastle, WY.  Loretta did it all.  She raised a family, ran multiple businesses, wielded a chain saw and logged along side Gary all day.  She could drive any piece of heavy equipment and one summer stood 12 hours a day in the blazing WY summer heat, as part of a road crew.  She was tough as nails.  She hunted, fished, rode horses, and even learned taxidermy. She worked in simultaneous operation of multiple businesses and did the books for them all; the LeadmLaundromat, where she even fixed all the machines, reclamation and grounds maintenance for Homestake Gold mine, and the Gold Town Motel. When Loretta “Retta” did anything, she gave it her all.  She started playing billiards 12 years ago and loved the game.  She won many tournaments and earned 4 trips to Vegas to play in the APA tournaments there. She loved the
game and loved teaching people to play.  
Loretta is survived by her three adoring children-Heidi McNall (Moravia NY), Heather McNall (Locke NY) & Austin McNall (Melbourne Beach FL), as well as her two sisters-Sonja Moorea (El Sobrante, CA) and Marlys Bokker (Gregory SD); grandchildren-Samantha Russell, Jared Russell, Lynnae Russell, Margaret McNall, Creed McNall; nieces and nephews-Jessica Opitz, Kenny Glotch, Emily Glotch, Shane Muffat, Michael Pfuntner, Sara Bokker &John Bokker.  Loretta is predeceased by her brother David Muffat and niece Darilyn (Muffat) Pedani.  
Loretta was the biggest supporter of her kids and grand kids attending every music, drama and sports event she could, always encouraging them all to be the best they could be and work hard doing what they love.
