Obituary of Tanika LaFollette

ADRIAN- Tanika Ann (LaFollette) Lolley, age 48 of Adrian, passed away on Sunday, September 23, 2018 at the Lenawee Hospice Home, Adrian, following a life-time of courageous battles.


 She was born on August 9, 1970 in Adrian, Michigan to Ovid C. and Mary Ann (Ingersoll) LaFollette.  Tanika was a 1988 graduate of Madison High School. Following high school, she worked at Lenawee Stamping.  Tanika devoted her life to raising her son at a young age.  She and her son’s father, Daniel Lolley remained friends while raising their son and recently re-connected all these years later.  Tanika and Daniel committed themselves to each other in a beautiful ceremony on August 31, 2018 in Adrian. These last weeks have been the happiest days of Tanika’s life as her family became whole again.  She was a very faithful woman and connected spiritually to her Lord and Savior and everything he stood for.  She enjoyed gardening, listening to music and especially rescuing animals of all kinds and nursing them back to health.


Surviving is her son, Mark LaFollette of Adrian, MI; the love of her life, Daniel Lolley of Adrian, MI; her mother, Mary Ann McKinney of Adrian, MI and two sisters, Sonya (Jeff) Poling of Adrian, MI and Trisha (Benjamin) Alvarado, of Virginia Beach, VA; nieces and nephews, Savannah McKinney, August, Joseph, Gabby, Melanie and Greyson Poling and Ben and Gabe Alvarado.  She was preceded in death by her father, Ovid, both her maternal and paternal grandparents and Judy Lolley, whom she thought of as a mother-in-law.
