She was naturalized in Buffalo, NY, at age 7 months previously being a child without a country until then. She then spent her first five years in Ankara, Turkey, even learning Turkish as a child. Her next home was Jakarta, Indonesia for 4 1/2 years where she learned some Indonesian. Next she lived in Tehran, Iran, for 3 1/2 years, under Reza Shah Pahlavi until the revolution and street riots. She finished off the school year in Scotland. Her next home was in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, for 2 years. After this she resided and was educated in Edinburgh, Scotland, to complete her secondary (high) school education and university (college) at the University of Edinburgh. She has been in the United States since 1989. Her father was a project manager for the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations. He worked on specific projects in each country to help plan for specific crop needs or population requirements for 5, 10 or 20 year plans depending what the governments required. In Turkey, for instance, he had to help find cash crops to replace money earned previously by growing opium poppies – REALLY!!
Travel has been a big part of Loretta’s life also. She has visited 44 countries, 26 with her husband, Dr. Lanting. She has experienced the Sky Venture wind tunnel which simulates skydiving equivalent to skydiving to 25 jumps. She has done adventure zip-lines in Costa Rica, Mexico and Scotland.

She has two lovely children, aged 22 and 19. Her oldest is her son who is a graduate from the University of Colorado at Boulder and studied Computer Science and Electrical Engineering. He graduated from Rocky Mountain High School where he was the class Secretary. Her daughter is attending the University of South Carolina, is involved in a Co-ed Engineering Fraternity, participates in sports and loves spending time with her friends.She loves color and original art. Her home is decorated in vibrant colors and her husband thought that she was on drugs when she first described her home color scheme. Their home is decorated in original art from their travels around the world that they chose together. She helps curate his multiple collections of art, sports memorabilia, postcards, glassware, comic art, first edition books, autographed memorabilia and other collectables. She enjoys the lovely green grass and bright flowers in her backyard and the views of the mountains between the trees. It is so peaceful.
