Chanel Isa Olivera, 23, died on June 27, 2007, in Chico. She was born July 18, 1983, to Arthur and Yolanda Olivera in Santa Barbara. Chanel graduated from Templeton High School in 2001 and just recently graduated from Chico State University.
Chanel once told a story to her mother of sitting in Heaven with God, carefully choosing the parents unto whom she’d be born and the family she would bless. Chanel definitely was an Angel of Love, bringing cheer, laugher and light to anyone around her. This lovely young lady has touched many lives and because of Chanel we shall not feel lonely again.
Chanel, we love you with all our hearts and miss you deeply. Please don’t stop shining your light on this world.
Chanel leaves her parents Art and Yolanda Olivera, of Templeton; a sister, Aja Mara; two younger brothers, Chasen Arthur and Britton Joseph; as well as many, many friends and relatives.
