May 14, 1959 - September 20, 2021
Loretta Lee Arellano went to be with her Lord and Savior on September 20, 2021 in Denver, Colorado. Her passing brings great heartache to her family, friends, and all those that had the blessing of meeting our angel “Lori”. She was 62 years old. She is preceded in death by her parents, brother; Mitch Martinez, and sister Anita L. LeFebre. Loretta was born on May 14th, 1959 to Christella Chavez and Manuel Martinez in Denver, Colorado. She was the youngest of four children and remained in Denver to raise her beautiful family as a devoted wife alongside the love of her life Richard Arellano. The two vowed their love for each other on December 30th, 1988. Together they raised four children. Loretta poured her love and adoration into each of her children and will most certainly be remembered for her hugs, caring, smiles, cooking, and charm that made her so special to her children. Loretta shared her passion for caring as she worked as a caregiver from 2000-2015.She then retired early and cared for her father in the same capacity until his passing. Loretta was self-less when it came to what she did for others. She had a contagious smile and laugh that would brighten up the darkest room. She was a great and loyal friend to all she has met throughout her 62 years. When she wasn’t working she loved entertaining, camping, being with her family, and going up to “The Hill”. Lori was the life of the party. While Loretta left her thumbprint of love on many of her Aunts, Uncles, Nieces, Nephews and Cousins, none touched her heart like that of her grandchildren and godson. Whether she was called Grammy or Nina, Loretta leaves an incomparable legacy of love to them. She loved them immensely even in her final moments and last hugs. She is survived by her husband Richard Arellano, brother Steve Martinez , sister Gina Davis, step daughter and spouse Desiree and Randy Marques; step son and spouse Anthony Arellano and Amber Howard; son and spouse Christopher Martinez and Lance Hartley; daughter and spouse Jennifer Arellano and Josh Marquez. Grandchildren; Sydney Howard, Mariah Vigil and Elias Jiron, Destinee Arellano and Nevaeh Marquez, and godson Joshua Maes. A rosary will be held Monday September 27th, 5-8 PM at Romero funeral home in Denver, Colorado. A celebration of life service will be held Tuesday September 28th @ 11:00AM at Thrive Church in Thornton, Colorado. The family is requesting attendees please arrive by 10:00AM to ensure seating considerations.
