I had the privilege of working with Olga for ten years at what was then named Allen and Stevens She Took me under her wing and always took such good care of me. That's what she did she would defend and protect the people that she cared for. She was always so strong. No matter what she was faced with she did it with her head held high. Over the years I have never stopped thinking about her and wishing I could be half as strong as she was every day. I will miss her very much. She was my best friend. For her children she loved you all with every bit of herself. I am very sorry for your loss.

I am so sorry for your loss. Your Mom was my beautiful grown up cousin who I admired and looked up to while we were growing up. In later years her strength and resolve through some very difficult challenges made me admire and look up to the woman she became. I can only imagine the empty space her passing has left in your lives. She will live on in the many memories I have of her.

It was with great sorrow that I learned of Olga's passing. I had the great privilege of having her as my classmate all through school, graduating with her in the Black Creek Township Class of 1961. Olga was dynamic, lovable, and fun-loving. Her great personality and sense of humor would light up a room, and bring joy to any gathering. She will be greatly missed.
Most sincerely, John Phillips
