Loretta was born on October 4, 1930, in New Roads, Louisiana. She was preceded in death by her husband of 69 years, Joseph C. Giglio, Sr., whom she loved so dearly and missed so greatly since his passing on March 23, 2021. Loretta was also preceded in death by her parents, Gilbert and Lois Baum, and a brother, John Gilbert Baum. She is survived by a sister, Nelda Baum Beaud, and a brother, Bernard “Pap” Baum, both of New Roads, Louisiana.
Loretta attended College of the Sacred Heart, a Catholic Boarding College in Grand Coteau, where she earned her degree and met the love of her life, her husband of almost 70 years, Joseph C. Giglio, Sr. After she graduated from Sacred Heart and he graduated from Southwest Louisiana Institute (now UL Lafayette), the couple moved to Greenwood, Mississippi, where they lived for five years. There, Loretta was a math teacher while her husband started his career with Pfizer Inc. Then, Pfizer moved them to Lafayette where they lived continuously since 1957, raising their three children. She was an artist, seamstress, great dancer, and wonderful mother. She was a devoted Catholic and active parishioner and supporter of Cathedral of St. John the Evangelist. Her daughters and daughter-in-law affectionately refer to her as their Queen Bee.

Giglio, Jr., married to Deborah Dupuy Giglio; Loretta Ann Giglio, married to Bryan Neal Dronet, Sr.; and Marie Elizabeth Giglio, married to Glen Olivier Raggio.
