Loretta Fern Sepulveda (nee Norbeck) died on Saturday, September 19, 2020 in Virginia Beach,
VA. She was born in Philadelphia, PA to Melvin and Frances Norbeck on September 2, 1930.
Loretta was the eldest of nine children including: Melvin, Jr. (deceased); Francis; Louis (Karl)
(deceased); Patricia; Jacqueline; Reverend Ernest (deceased); Eileen; Gerald and beloved sister-
in-law to Loretta B. Norbeck (deceased). She had four boys: John (Rhonda), Thomas, Anthony

by her several nieces and nephews as the “coolest” aunt ever. Loretta was most recently
married to John Sepulveda of Pace, FL.
Loretta worked for many years as a Civil Servant computer operator. She was a very devoted
Roman Catholic and member of Church of the Ascension in Virginia Beach. As a founding
member of the church Seniors group – Rainbows, she took a very active role in its Craft Shows
and management. One always knew exactly how the organization was to be run. If you didn’t,
you quickly learned. Loretta enjoyed wearing an item of jewelry on the back shoulder of her
blouse or sweater. It made her quite unique. There was never a dull moment when Loretta
was around, and she will be sorely missed by her family and friends.
