Before Lolie was diagnosed with Alzheimer's 10 years ago, she was known by all as crazy Grandma Peña. She touched the lives of many people with her smile and generosity, and maintained her trademark sense of humor. Lolie will be remembered by family and friends, all of whom had the pleasure of knowing her as a caring, warm, spunky and giving person. She loved her family dearly, there were no exceptions. She loved to dance, watch her soap operas, attend and cheer on all of her grandchildren at their sporting events. Her funny wit and strong presence will be deeply missed by both her family and all of her friends. The family would like to thank the staff of Redwood Springs and Kaweah Delta Hospital for their loving care and compassion in her final days.
