Martha Loughran

Martha Loughran, a long-time resident of Alameda, passed away peacefully April 25 at Oakmont of Concord Assisted Living with her husband James Loughran by her side.

For many years, Martha took great joy in working part-time for Connoisseurs’ Guide to California Wines. Martha was always very involved in the Alameda community through her many volunteer activities including at schools and libraries. In her later years, she loved her volunteer activities at the Mastick Senior Center in Alameda. 

Martha loved music and reading. She enjoyed going to musicals and plays with family and friends, and had a wonderful smile that could light up a room.

Martha is survived by her loving husband, James; daughter, Stacey Loughran (Walt Dieckmann) of Wildomar, Calif.; son, Sean Loughran (Christina) of Orinda; daughter, Stephanie Mackin (John) of Sonoma and grandchildren, Ryan Loughran and Caitlin Loughran.

A small service will be held in the future. In lieu of flowers, please donate to the Alzheimers Association.
