Olivia, or "Lula" as she was affectionately known, was born on November 13, 1940 in San Patricio, NM to Severo and Maria Erminia Gallegos. She was a dedicated wife, mother, and grandmother. She always took care of her family and put them first.
Olivia was best known in the community for working at the pawnshop. However, her main focus was on her family and, most importantly, her pride and joy -- her grandchildren.

She is also survived by her siblings and their spouses; Mary Lou and Max Bringhurst, Connie Gallegos; Lucy and Paul Garcia; Gloria Holguin; and Billy Gallegos.
She was preceded in death by her father, Severo M. Gallegos; her mother Maria (Minnie) Gallegos; her sister Patsy Ramos; her brothers Monroe Gallegos and Milo Gallegos.
