Loretta Watts was the mother of the protagonist, Wade Watts. She died sometime before the events of the novel when Wade was only 11 years old. It's known that she was a hardcore drug addict that let the OASIS raise her son for her, though she worked two jobs to support her habit. When she died, it was from a drug overdose while zoned out on the couch listening to an old mp3 player that Wade had repaired for her.
