Maretta was born on May 13, 1940 in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, to Fern Welch and Margie Sprague Welch, they both preceded her in death. Also, she was preceded in death by her younger brother and her cherished, youngest daughter.
She is survived by one brother, two daughters, nine grandchildren, eight great-grandchildren, and three grand-dogs, whom she adored (especially the one with the “floppy ear”).
Maretta was employed by Eureka Williams for many years. Upon retirement, she enjoyed helping kids and adults alike ride the Merry Go Round at Eastland Mall. She was a member of Trinity Lutheran Church in Bloomington, where she enjoyed volunteering her time. She had many lifelong friends, loved her family fiercely, and had the best memory known.
