Loretta Ann "Guga" Reeder, 58, of Gilbert, SC, formerly of Dravosburg, passed away peacefully while surrounded by family on Sunday, July 2, 2017 after a brave fight with lung cancer. She was born December 29, 1958 and was the daughter of the late Larry and Mary (Vucetic) Reeder. Loretta was a wonderful mother to her children and to all who crossed her path. She was hard working and a jack of all trades. She loved nothing more than her Pittsburgh Steelers, playing softball, gardening and the beach. Guga was outgoing, so full of life and always treated everyone like family. She is survived by her children, Andrew John Markatine of Charlotte, NC, Amanda Catherine Markatine of Gilbert, SC, Sarah Breeze (Rick) Kill of Logansville, GA and Michael Joseph (Jordan Lindler) Morrison, Jr. of Charlotte, NC, two grandchildren, Arianna Allison Markatine and Jaydyn Reeder Clark, Siblings, Rosalyn Reeder of Summit, SC, Betty Jo Reeder of McKeesport, John Reeder of Dravosburg and Cheryl "Poopsy" (Michael) McKelvey of Dravosburg, Nieces and Nephews, Shannin Reeder, Rosalyn and John Reeder, Caitlin, Tony and Harlie Ann McKelvey.
She will be fondly remembered for her selflessness, compassion and love of life. There is no visitation.
