Our dearest mother Floarea (Florica, Babi) Olahut, of Grand Rapids, Michigan sadly passed away on Friday, May 20, 2022 at the age of 74, after a courageous battle with cancer. 

She was always positive and happy. Her smile, laugh and kind words were a comfort to everyone she ever met. She loved to cook, garden, help everyone and be involved in all sorts of volunteering activities. Floarea moved to the United States from Romania in 2016 to be close to her children and grandchildren. She will be missed more than words can express, she left a legacy of godliness, love, and kindness that will be celebrated by those whose life she touched. Floarea was a beloved wife, mother, and grandmother who took great delight in spending time with her family and friends. Babi will be always remembered by her children: Adriana (Lucian) Vlasin, Mihaela (Marius) Baintan, Grigore (Cosmina) Olahut;   grandchildren: Lucia Vlasin, Cristian Baintan, Patrick Olahut, Emma Olahut; siblings: Amalia Teglas, Maria Matias, Ioan Borz; many special cousins, nieces and nephews, and friends.

She was preceded in death by her husband of 49 years Grigore Olahut; her brothers: Emil Borz, Leontin Borz and Gheorghe (Ghitu) Borz; her parents Gheorghe and Amalia Borz.

There is no day harder and sadder than the day our mother leaves us! Where will we find the strength to stay upright, to survive this departure? There are no answers to the emptiness left in our souls. Dear and beloved mother, mother-in-law and grandmother, you were more than a wonderful person, with a hard life, that somehow always succeeded. A fighter, an optimist, a woman with a contagious smile, with a huge heart and open to all! All your worries and thoughts were for your family, your children and your grandchildren. We will all miss you so much and we will pray unceasingly that the angels will love you as deeply as you loved us! Our love for you will never end, it will always last!

Now you have chosen to leave us and embark on your own journey. Rivers of tears flow behind you, and sadness has frozen in our souls!

GOODBYE MOTHER, our first Heaven!

Relatives and friends may meet the family on Friday, May 27, from 6:00 -7:00  pm at STROO Funeral Home, 1095 68th Street SE, Grand Rapids, MI. Memorial service will follow the visitation at 7:00.
