Lola Chalupsky, 85

Lola Jeanne Chalupsky, age 85, of Delano, passed peacefully into the loving arms of her Savior, Jesus Christ, Sunday, July 10, 2016.

She was preceded in death by her husband, Amos; a miscarried child, Mary Joseph; her parents, Arvid and Gladys Olson; brother Rod Olson; and several treasured relatives and friends.

Lola is survived by step children, Lorelie (Donald-d), Gary (Lynn), and Carl (Diana); her children, Stephen, Douglas (Carolyn), Theodore (Diane), Jeanne (Kent), Brian (Sandy), Judith, Mathew (Cindy), Glenn (Grace), Kenneth (Elgene), Lawrence (Donna), and Bruce (Alice); her sister, Bonnie Connor; and many beloved grandchildren, along with numerous cherished relatives and friends.

Hers was a life well-lived, having raised 14 children and helping to manage several successful businesses in partnership with her husband of 55 years, Amos. Her most precious focus was her beloved Roman Catholic faith, which she joyfully shared with all whom she encountered along her path.

Her intellect, keen wit, sense of humor, counsel and loving tenderness to family and friends, will be deeply missed.
