  • Oleta Christine Lolmaugh, of Gridley passed away peacefully on the morning of October 26, 2013. She was born in Oklahoma to Floyd and Betty Jackson on December 15, 1949. She started her family in California and lived in many parts of the State. She married Dan Lolmaugh, of Gridley, in 1994 and settled down. She was a natural caregiver to her loved ones, friends, strangers, and especially to the many creatures and critters she rescued over the years. She was a woman of many talents, which included bargain shopping, yard sale-ing, creating stained glass artwork, gardening, cooking, reading, and watching cheesy horror films. Her greatest passion was nurturing and raising children. She was the greatest grandma ever. If you were lucky enough to have been loved by her, you know that her love will never leave you. She will be forever missed. She was a young spirit and an old soul who could eat a plate of food half her size. She once had a tape worm. She got her first tattoo at 60. She dressed up for Halloween every year. She loved Chile Relleno. She loved the Eagles, Elton John, Janis Joplin, and The Hollies. She had three sisters: Sandy, Alma, Caroline; and two brothers: Robert and Clyde. Oleta had three children: Carrie, Teresa, and Eddie. She is preceded in death by her daughter Teresa and brothers Clyde and Robert Jackson. She is survived by Dan Lolmaugh and family. Her youngest sister Caroline McNally, of Yuba City; Chad and Carrie Cheatham, of Los Angeles; Eddie and Angela Barrera, of Los Angeles; and her Grandchildren: Angie, Aleta, Nichole, Eddy, Jeremy, and Zack. Great-grandchildren: Gracie, Drew, Lucy and Taiden. Oleta was greatly loved and will be dearly missed by her family and her furry babies: Dixie, Roxy, Happy Hunter, Baby, and too many others to name. A celebration of life will be held on December 15, 2013 at 1232 Losser Avenue, Gridley, CA 95948 at 2 p.m.
