You were so full of life and positive energy at an age when so many of us have none of that left ! We so loved visiting with you many late afternoons accompanied by our glasses of white wine ~ always only 2 ~ and have enjoyed many rounds of golf with all the golf balls you found at Little Creek. We will remember you when we are out in our garden and stroll through the Lilies of the Valley you gave us. We'll never forget your attitude about going to the doctor ... "Why go looking for trouble?" We'll always remember how you cherished your many good friends. You will always be "one of a wonderful kind" to us, Olga. Fondly, Ron & Jan Eaton

Olga was an amazing woman. I loved listening to her stories and I enjoyed visiting her beloved house in Lake Shores. She was such an independent thinker. My last conversation was in April at Betty Byrnes funeral mass and she still was a little smaller and bent over but still very upbeat and happy. What a wonderful soul; she will be missed.

To anyone who reads this,family and friends, Olga was one of a kind. I enjoyed visiting with her when I visit my sister in Virginia Beach. We have a standing joke. The first time I met Olga I had just arrived in VA Beach for a visit with my sister after driving 8 hours to get there. Olga was not much on using the A/C. I must say, I think I had sweat dripping down every nook and cranny in my body and coming out of every orrifice of my body... to be continued

The candle has gone out for one amazing lady. My life has been touched by knowing both her and Henry. I will smile everytime I think of trying to give her a ride as she walked to wherever she was going along shore drive, only to be told "it was a great day to walk" no matter the weather.

Olga was a permanent fixture in Chic's Beach. I will miss seeing her in the mornings while strolling the beach with my dog a "present" for him always found by Olga among the sand. It was Olga who introduced me to the opera, now a healthy addiction, and forever I will be grateful to her for enriching my life and putting a smile on my face whenever I encountered her walking the beach, rain or shine, cold or hot, wearing just a pair of old shoes without socks and a wonderful life attitude. Olga's presence will be greatly missed.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.
