Obituary of Bertha "Tita" Olvera

Five generations seen through her eyes, five generations loved by her. Bertha Olvera was born in Tierra Blanca, Nuevo Leon, Mexico on June 6, 1930. She met and fell in love with Rafael P. Olvera in Mexico, and married the same year they met in 1946. In 1950, they moved to Elsa, TX, where they began their own family. In 1965, they moved to Yuba City, CA, where they expanded their family with one more child. Bertha and Rafael were married for 35 years before Rafael passed away in 1981. Fifteen years later she became a proud U.S citizen on July 3, 1996. Family was always the most important thing to Tita, she cared for and helped raise her grandchildren and great-grandchildren as if they were her own. She is survived by daughter, Olga Dorantes; sons, Raul Olvera, Raymundo Olvera, and Tomas Olvera; daughter-in-law, Tracy Olvera; son-in-law, Ramon Oliva; grandchildren, Yvette and Tony Miguel, Sonja Olvera, Teresa and Christie Basile, Stephanie, Olvera, Mario Dorantes III, Christopher and Veronica Olvera, Vanessa Olvera, Arturo and Dillery Oliva, Andres Oliva, Antonio Olvera and Alexander Olvera; seventeen great-grandchildren; and three great-great-grandchildren.
