She was originally buried on the Kilburn farm, but when the Mactaquac Dam was constructed, many homes disappeared under the new head pond and cemetery had to be relocated to higher ground. When Odber Miles and Loretta returned to live in Fredericton about 1897, they lived on York Street where the Hartt Boot and Shoe Factory Co. Ltd was constructed in 1899. Two years after Loretta died, he sold his share of the factory, and moved back to the USA in 1904. They were Free Christian Baptist people.
