DIMEN, Loretta Marie (nee Husack)
Passed peacefully at Hampton Terrace, Burlington on Tuesday, December 17, 2019 at age 84. Beloved wife to John Dimen. Much loved mother to Brent (Barbra) and Leona. Proud Babcha to Spencer and Deirdra. Predeceased by brothers Frank Husack (Evelyn) and Douglas Husack (late Isabel). Sister-in-law of late Ernest Dimen (late Margaret) and Diana Berner. In addition, Loretta will be deeply missed by her many nieces, nephews and friends.
Loretta began her life in McMunn, Manitoba and later moved to Hamilton where she was introduced to John. They married in 1959 and built their first home in Burlington, where they welcomed Brent and, three years later, Leona. The family then moved to the first of two homes in Carlisle before John and Loretta finally settled back in Burlington. Together Loretta and John enjoyed 60 wonderful and eventful years of marriage. Loretta relished family gatherings, travelled far and wide with John, and loved hosting social events for friends, attending ballet and opera performances; and golfing at the Beverly G.&C.C. She played bridge with various groups including in Carlisle and at the Roseland Park Country Club. Loretta volunteered extensively; notably, she was past president of the Hamilton Dental Assistant’s Association; she volunteered for several years with the Joseph Brant Hospital Auxiliary; and she sat for 12 years on the Board of Opera Hamilton.
