Great Grandma Chapter – Great Grandma Lola

My Great-Grandma Lola was a pioneer, second generation Yuman. She was born in 1898 as an Evaro. She was a fair skin, petite, women with long, salt and pepper hair that reached her waist. She would place her hair into a bun in the daytime and wear it down at night in a braid. When I arrived on this earth, she was fifty-six years old. She and my Great-Grandpa Nacho had approximately twelve babies is what I've heard. Perhaps there were more.

My Great-Grandma had the respect of her family, friends, the community, and especially the Church. She was a very religious woman. When she got much older in her eighties, the priests would come and visit then give her communion.

Oh Great-Grandma was a very proud woman who spoke Spanish and English beautifully and appreciated the fine things in life, such as good food and good music. I loved my Great-Grandma very much and spent a lot of time with her after my Dad passed away when I was eight. One thing that I remember, is when we would talk in the afternoons about anything, and she often asked me to sing to her, as long as it was not a current ‘60s tune, of course.

I knew a part of Great-Grandma that only a few of us know, though. I still loved her. She taught me how to be generous with others. I miss my Great-Grandmother today. Now that I am older, I appreciate all the living that she did during her time. She was a strong woman, and I was fortunate to have spent quality time with her while I was growing up as a child.
