Grass Valley woman, fiancé die in Cascade Fire

Former Yuba City attorney Stanley Coolidge (left) and Roseann Hannah of Grass Valley perished in the Cascade Fire, according to family members.

Roseann Hannah and her fiancée Stanley Coolidge died Oct. 9 when flames from the Cascade Fire burned Coolidge's Loma Rica home while the two were inside, according to family members.

Hannah, a 53-year-old Grass Valley woman, had a happy, uplifting personality and was a dedicated mother to her 26-year-old twin sons, Jeffrey and Jordan Hannah, according to her friend Anna Olrich.

"She will be missed dearly by the ones that loved her," Olrich said.

Andrew Coolidge, Stanley's son, said she was an "absolutely amazing person" who cared about her two boys more than anything in the world.

"You could always count on her being in good spirits and being a friendly face," he said. "She had a laugh and a smile that would light up a room."

Stanley Coolidge, 78, was a former Yuba-Sutter attorney for 40 years, Andrew said.

A joint service for the couple is scheduled for 2 p.m. on Nov. 3 at the Sutter County Veterans Hall, 1425 Veterans Memorial Circle, Yuba City.
