Loretta A. Gumm, 79, of 117 Market Street, Kohler, began her eternal life surrounded by her loving family on Friday afternoon, June 9, 2006 shortly after being admitted at St. Nicholas Hospital.
Loretta was born on July 31, 1926 in Ada in the Town of Herman, the daughter of the late Rymond and Elsie (Kuhn) Zimmermann. She attended school in Johnsonville and the Mission House.
