Olga Moell

Olga Moell passed away on March 22, 2024. She was born to Emery & Iona Jenks in Hague, North Dakota on July 9, 1936, she was the oldest of 6 children.

Olga met the love of her life, Frank, in 1955. They were married on December 17, 1955, and were never apart until Frank’s passing just a few weeks shy of their 67th anniversary.  

They moved around the Dakotas a lot early in their marriage due to Frank working construction. After several years of enduring the cold weather of the Dakotas, they moved to Chula Vista, California where they lived for several years until moving to Nevada. They spent 14 years in Carson City, then moved to Lovelock for a short while before moving on to the Feather River Ranch in Loyalton, CA. They also spent 2 years at the Cutler Ranch in Yerington, NV before finally settling in Fallon, where they lived out the remainder of their lives. 

Olga was a stay-at-home mom. She was her kids and grandkids biggest supporter. She spent several years on the Nevada rodeo circuit with Lisa and Laloni. She rarely missed any of her grandkid’s sports or extracurricular events as they grew up. She was so very proud of her daughters and of all her grandchildren.

Olga is survived by her three daughters; Leann Moell of Ridgecrest, CA; Lila Moell of Lovelock, NV, and Lisa Moura (Anthony) of Lovelock, NV; 8 grandchildren; Laloni, Holly, Jerry, Donovan, Dylan, Megan, Daralyn, and Devin; and 5 great-grandchildren; Dakota, Dillon, Deegan, Hayden and Koda. As well as her 5 siblings; Vashti Christlieb of Fargo, ND, Darrel Jenks (Diane) of Dayton, NV, Dave Jenks (Jan) of Alice, ND, Jim Jenks (Marlys) of El Cajon, CA, and Terry Jenks of Enderlin, ND.

Olga didn’t like anyone to fuss over her, so it was her wish not to have a public funeral; therefore, there will be a private family gathering to celebrate her life. 



Comment author: Claude EzzellComment text: Paul was one of the most manifest men I have ever met. He was a good friends with my Dad and always had an entertaining story for the occasion. One of my most favorite stories Paul told dated back to the late 60s or early 70s and it revolved around him killing a deer way out in the mountains. Naturally the deer ran down into a deep canyon and died. Knowing that it would take him forever to haul it out he devised an awesome plan. After preparing the deer he drove back to NAS Fallon and rustled up a SAR crew and they flew out and picked up the deer. Of course it was labeled as a training flight but what the hell in those days you could do that sort of thing. Rest in Peace my friend until we meet again!!Comment publication date: 4/11/24, 1:15 PMComment source: Obituary - LCDR Paul N PflimlinComment author: THughesComment text: So sad to hear.
