Kim Marie O'Hagan, 54, of Escalon died at her home on Thursday, Sept. 27, 2012.

She was born on Nov. 22, 1957 in Oakland to Harold and June Morehead (Gendreau). She was the youngest of four daughters. She lived in the Bay Area for many years and then moved her young family to Manteca, then eventually moved to Escalon, where she has lived for the past 16 years.

She worked in the administrative field for 36 years at various jobs before becoming ill at the beginning of this year. She had a huge heart for animals and never found an animal that she didn't love instantly as evidenced by the five dogs and two horses that she owned at the time of her death. She spent her weekends with her friends at various different riding events. She loved to be out in the open riding her horse Mak. Kim will forever be remembered for her contagious laugh and her free spirited personality. She had an uncanny ability to make friends.

Survivors include her husband Daniel O'Hagan; her daughter Jennifer Martinez of Escalon; her son and daughter-in-law Kyle and Cara Martinez of Morro Bay; her mother June Morehead of Manteca; her sister and brother-in-law Sharon and Danny Ross of Sacramento; her sister and brother-in-law Gwendolyn and Kenneth Watson of Danville; and brother-in-law Clay Neilson of Cathy's Valley; also by several nieces, nephews, great nephews, one great niece, plus many cousins and close friends.

She was preceded in death by her father Harold F. Morehead and her older sister Toni Neilson.

A memorial will be held in the near future at Kennedy Meadows where she loved to be. For further memorial information contact Jennifer Martinez via email (

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in her memory to your local SPCA or horseback riding camp for kids.
