Obituary

Andrea Lynn Grant
October 28,1951 – January 4, 2021
Andrea Grant, after a long illness, passed away peacefully in her sleep at the age of 69. Andrea was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. She was the daughter of Willard and Norma Bolden. Lynn’s father was in the Air Force and the family traveled from base to base before finally settling in Fairfield, California in 1966. Lynn attended and graduated from Vanden High School in Fairfield. She received an academic scholarship to Scripps College in Claremont, California, graduating with a BA in American Literature. She then received a Teaching Credential at the University of California, Santa Barbara. Lynn ultimately decided to pursue a career in law, attending Golden Gate University School of Law in San Francisco. After passing the BAR she started working at the California Department of Mental Health till 1995, when she began working at the Office of Legal Affairs at the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation, working in various legal departments, retiring in 2014. Lynn also served in the United Air Force Reserves, working as a Base Public Defender with the Judge Advocate General Department. While attending college Lynn met her future husband, Lloyd Grant, who was attending a college nearby. After getting married in May 1978, they eventually settled in the Sacramento area, and went on to have two sons, Daryl and Darren. Lynn was always an avid reader from the time she was in elementary school up to the time she became ill. Her brother remembers whenever they went to the library, she would always check out several books at a time to his one. Lynn would read all her books and then start reading her brother’s books. Lynn liked to be active when she could. In the early years, she was quite the Racquetball player. Later in life, she took up hiking and Zumba. And for the past 5 years, she has participated in two of her favorite races, the Kaiser Women Fitness Festival, and the Urban Cow Marathon. Finally, one of her favorite pastimes was spending time with her young grandson.
Lynn was preceded in death by her loving parents, Frank and Norma. She is survived by her husband, Lloyd, sons Daryl (Natasha), and Darren (Sarah), three brothers, Gerald (Linda), Brian (Maria) and Terence, one grandson, Karter Grant, and a host of nieces and nephews.
A private service, including military honors, will be held at the Sacramento Valley National Cemetery on January 26 at 11:30 am PST.

    Although we cousins are separated by the west coast and the east coast we remain close. Our parents made sure that we knew each other, and whenever possible we would make the long distance trip to share our kinship. I remember Lynn as a reader of books, and as an avid runner. She was always nice to be around and would make sure we a lunch date during our visits to California. May God rest her soul

  • Marilyn E JOhnson says:

    Lynn was probably the best read and smartest of us. She could read a text book as easily as a novel. And while we did not spend a lot of time together in our later years, I sure have some great memories. I thank God her transition was peaceful. Praying for the family, we shall see her again.

  • Kori Salas says:

    I worked with Lynn for over a year – too short because she was a pleasure to work with. Everyone at work liked her; she was that person that had a good rapport with everyone. I know sure liked her, and appreciated her help as a new attorney. Lynn and her family will be in my thoughts.

  • Wanda Washington and Family says:

    To the Grant and Bolden Family,

    I knew Lynn through Gerald and Linda. Lynn was a beautiful person with her beautiful smile. She was very intelligent and smart woman but most importantly she was very down-to-earth. I would see Lynn and her family at one of the holiday gatherings. It was always so good to see and talk with Lynn. She enjoyed spending time with her family and friends.

    We will continue to pray for the strength and peace for the Grant and Bolden families. Yes, you will miss Lynn’s presence but you will always have those memories of her in your heart.
