Loretta Lynn Baird
Loretta Lynn Baird, 54, a resident Fort Myers, Florida since 2014, formerly of Roanoke, VA, passed peacefully in her sleep Tuesday July 5, 2022, in Fort Myers. She was born November 21, 1967, in Salem, VA to Richard and Mary Brown, now deceased.
Loretta was of the Baptist faith and was a member of Pine Island Church. She was an amazing woman, she made everything better. You could always catch her dancing around everywhere even around a stop light. She would always keep you laughing, there was never a dull moment. She was a caring person, she would listen to others, comfort them and when she was done, she would have them laughing. She was the person to run to when you needed advice, a partner in crime or a good laugh. She enjoyed painting things and doing crafts too. Of course, she would give them to others or simply put it up in the house for Dean Hassell. She was so creative and good at what she did even though she never thought so. She was humble, beautiful inside and out. Caring, loving and the strongest person I know. If you had the pleasure of knowing her, she probably lit up your life, because that’s what she did. She lit up any room she entered. Loretta will be missed by many.
She is survived by her loving husband Harold Baird; brothers, Roy Brown, and Richard Brown; her children Amber Chapman and Al King “Buddy” Chapman, Samantha Marie Bryant, and Albert King Chapman; nieces and nephews Roy Brown, Alyssa Brown, Timmy Brown, Richard Brown and Mercedes Brown; as well as eleven grandchildren, Skylar Chapman, Mason Chapman, Cayden Chapman, Kenneth Bryant, Jamie Chapman, Evan Chapman, Nathan Chapman, Ashley Bryant, Bruce Hawkins, Daryl Hawkins, and Dean Hawkins.
