Loretta J. (Wlock) Gaugler, 85, of Barto, passed away on March 14, 2020 at Amity Place in Douglassville, Pa. She was the loving wife of Harvey F. Gaugler, sharing 62 years of marriage before his passing in February of 2018.
Born in Bridgeport, PA on January 25, 1935, she was the daughter of the late Michael and Catherine (Adams) Wlock.

In Loretta’s spare time, you could find her in her garden tending to all of her flowers and in her kitchen baking
or cooking something good. She also enjoyed traveling and most importantly, spending time with her family.
