Tunkhannock, PA

Loretta Ayers, 92, of Tunkhannock passed away Saturday, May 13, 2023 at The Gardens, Tunkhannock. She was preceded in death by her first husband, Howard Culver and second husband, Joseph Ayers.

Born on August 17, 1930 in Tunkhannock, she is the daughter of the late Joseph Ross and Margaret Matthews Roberts, and step-father, Carlton (Bill) Roberts.

Loretta was not only a great cook; cooking brought her immense joy and happiness. Her family and friends always looked forward to her homemade meals during holidays and special occasions. Loretta had a talent for making everyone feel welcome in her home, whether it was through the delicious dishes she prepared or the warm embrace that greeted each and every guest.

Loretta will also be remembered for her caring and loving personality. She had an unparalleled ability to empathize with others and offer a listening ear when someone needed it most. Her selflessness was demonstrated not only in the way she treated others, but also in the way she lived her life.

In addition to cooking and socializing with loved ones, Loretta enjoyed dancing throughout her lifetime. Her passion for dance allowed her to express herself creatively while also staying active.

One of the fondest memories that many will have of Loretta is going shopping with her. She had an eye for fashion and could always find the perfect outfit for any occasion. Her shopping trips were more than just buying clothes; they were moments cherished together with loved ones.

She is survived by her sons, Stephen Culver and spouse David and William (Billy) and spouse Lorraine Culver; two grandchildren; one great-grandchild; great niece, Wendy Miller and spouse Harold (Jr.); and many other nieces and nephews.

In addition to her husband, she was preceded in death by her brothers, Jack Ross and Gerald Ross; sister, Eleanor Visneski; niece, Linda Waardenburg; great nephews, Pat Waardenburg and Jamie Dickson.

She will always be remembered by those whose lives she touched. Her kindness, warmth, and culinary skills will never be forgotten, nor will the memories shared while enjoying them together. Loretta's legacy will undoubtedly live on through those who knew and loved her.

Funeral services will be held privately at the convenience of the family.

Arrangements and care entrusted to Sheldon-Kukuchka Funeral Home, 73 W. Tioga St. Tunkhannock, PA 18657.
