Loretta Mary Sheehy, 88, of Williamstown, MA, passed away peacefully December 1, 2018 at Berkshire Medical Center. Born in New Marlborough, MA to the late Roslyn Viola and Henry Hebert, she grew up on Lake Buel where her parents owned Hebert’s Beach Motel and her father built many of the cottages. She graduated from Searles High School in 1948. After she married, she moved to Stewart Manor, NY and raised her children there. She later moved back to Gt. Barrington where she worked at the Berkshire School and Bob’s Deli. Upon retirement she moved to Williamstown where she continued to be a big fan of the Williams College men’s basketball team, coached by her son, Harry. She loved running Harry’s basketball camp store, where she was not particularly concerned with revenue (lucky kids!) Her sense of humor, incredible work ethic and delicious cooking were her hallmarks.
