Loretta Michelle McGee (nee Paranich), loving mother of Brennan, Kelsey and Michaila of Water Street, Miramichi, passed away Monday November 30, 2020 at Miramichi Regional Hospital, after her brief battle with cancer, at the age of 57.

Born in Vegreville Alberta, she was the daughter of the late Michael and Alyce (Sorochan) Paranich. She was a clerk for almost 10 years at MacCallum Building Supplies and assisted many Miramichiers with their projects, but she was so much more in her lifetime. She was a dancer, a paramedic, a farmer, a cow rider at rodeos, a veterinary technician, a teacher, an artist, a cook, a friend, and a member of the Roman Catholic Church.

She is survived by her son Brennan McGee of Fredericton and her two daughters, Kelsey (Jesse Corcoran) of Miramichi and Michaila (Jonathan Wood) of Bathurst, Her two sisters, Audrey (Mike) Bellis of Calgary Alberta and Barbara Paranich (Wally Rutkowski) of Edmonton, her three brothers, Greg Paranich (Faye) of Blackfalds Alberta, Russell Paranich (Sue Weniger) of Calgary Alberta and Corey Paranich of Edmonton Alberta, her former husband Ken McGee of Bathurst and the McGee Family of Moncton, nieces and nephews, and extended family Nancy Blackmore (Late Rocky) of Miramichi, Jeannie Allison (Brian) of Fredericton, Joyce Carruthers (Wayne) of Miramichi, Derrick Carnahan (Betty Anne) of Miramichi, Barry Carnahan (Veronica) of Miramichi, and a special friend Margaret Tozer and her family.

Besides her parents, she was predeceased by her loving companion of 15 years Boyd Carnahan with whom she raised countless animals at Edgewood Farm in South Esk, and brought joy to the children of Miramichi with their pony ride and petting zoo business, and a nephew Matthew Paranich of Alberta.

Loretta was so full of life and love. Whether it was at work, in her home, or out around town she would always lend a hand to those in need with a big smile on her face and more often than not a baked good to offer. Although her battle with cancer was brief, she fought hard and in true Loretta fashion didn’t want to make a fuss about things or have people worrying for her.

At the request of the family there will be no visitation. A memorial Mass will be celebrated at St. Michael’s Basilica on Saturday December 12, at 11 a.m. with Father Paul Doucet officiating.

Please note: Mask and social distancing is mandatory.

In memory of Loretta, donations to Hospice Miramichi would be appreciated by the family.
