Loretta Grooms Life and Times

Loretta Daniels Grooms, a beacon of unwavering faith and love, completed her earthly journey on January 24, 2024, in Hartford, Alabama.

Born in Dothan, Alabama, on August 1, 1947, to Freddie Lee Daniels and Leola Rogers Daniels, Loretta's life was a testament to the power of grace and dedication. Embracing her spiritual calling, she became an integral part of the Followers of Christ Ministries, where she served with devotion as the Church Mother.

Loretta's early acceptance of Christ laid the foundation for a life filled with purpose and service. Her commitment to her faith was evident in every aspect of her life and inspired many within her community. Her service as the Church Mother was not just a title, but a role she embodied with every fiber of her being, offering guidance, wisdom, and an unshakable support to all who sought her counsel.

The Dothan City School System, where she was educated, saw her graduate with the Class of 1966. This educational journey was the springboard for a life of continuous learning and growth. Loretta's professional life was marked by her tenure at Twitchell Corporation, where she retired after years of dedicated service. Her work ethic and commitment to excellence left an indelible mark on her colleagues and set a standard for those who followed.

Beyond her professional achievements, Loretta's true legacy lies in the loving family she nurtured. She was the cherished matriarch to her children: Maria Jones, Shelia Grooms, Kenneth Grooms, Calvin (Viva) Grooms, Jr., Thomas Grooms, and James Grooms. Her wisdom will continue to guide her fifteen grandchildren and sixteen great-grandchildren. Loretta's siblings: Reverend Mace C. (Vivian) Daniels, Charles (Irene) Daniels, Coly Daniels, Kelvin B. Daniels, and Reginald Daniels, along with sisters Evangelist Freddie (Bishop Robert) White and Prophetess Rita Von Grice; aunts: Mary Epperson and Montraler Sudduth, will hold dear the memories of a sister whose life was a living sermon of love and strength.

Loretta's life was a vibrant tapestry woven with the threads of her unshakeable faith, the joy she found in her family, and the countless friendships she cultivated. Her absence will be deeply felt by the host of nieces, nephews, family, and friends who were fortunate enough to be part of her journey. Yet, the essence of her spirit—a spirit characterized by resilience and boundless compassion—will remain a guiding light for all who knew her.

In the words of Helen Keller, "What we have once enjoyed we can never lose. All that we love deeply becomes a part of us." Loretta Daniels Grooms loved deeply and lived fully, becoming an integral part of the lives she touched. Her legacy is not one of sorrow but of celebration—a celebration of a life that exemplified the virtues of kindness, generosity, and unwavering faith.

As we bid farewell to Loretta, we honor her life by emulating her example: to live with purpose, to cherish every moment with our loved ones, and to serve our communities with a heart full of grace. Her journey on earth may have concluded, but the seeds of goodness she planted in the hearts of many will continue to blossom, spreading the beauty of her spirit across generations.

Loretta Daniels Grooms's story is not one of sadness but a narrative of a life well-lived—a life that will continue to inspire and uplift long after her passing. In celebrating her remarkable journey, we are reminded of the enduring power of faith, the strength found in family, and the transformative impact of love in action. May her memory be a blessing to us all.
