Adair

Loretta Derene Hibbard, a beloved wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, and faithful servant of the Lord, passed away on Sunday, March 31, 2024, in Adair, Oklahoma, at the age of 89. She was born on February 26, 1935, in Natural Dam, Arkansas, to Thomas and Leora Jones.
 
 Loretta was a woman of unwavering faith and love for her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Her deep connection to her faith was evident in every aspect of her life. She shared her passion for Jesus with everyone she met, always hoping to touch their hearts as he had touched hers.
 
 Apart from her spiritual devotion, Loretta had a creative spirit and a love for nature. She found joy in gardening and spending time outdoors. Known for her skills as a seamstress and crocheter, she lovingly crafted quilts for her grandchildren.
 
 One of Loretta's proudest accomplishments was her dedication to teaching Sunday school for many years. Alongside her husband Thurman, she played a significant role in constructing the Cross on the Prairie in 2016—an enduring symbol of faith and community in Mayes County.
 
 In the memory of Loretta Derene Hibbard thrive the lessons of kindness she imparted to those around her. Her legacy lives on through the lives she touched with her warm heart and unwavering faith.
