My Tia Olga was a tiny little thing with a big personality and an even bigger heart. She was funny and spirited. My favorite saying of hers was "hateful outfit!" when she saw or heard anyone being mean, rude, disrespectful, or she simply didn't like....her expression would change for those few seconds and then back to her smiling self. She loved me unconditionally and I will miss her always.
My love and deepest condolences to my primos, Mona & Ernie. May God wrap His loving arms around you and give you strength and comfort in this most difficult time.
Rest in glory, Tia Manchita.
All my love,

Olga was such a good neighbor for around 40 years or so and one of the most caring and sweetest women I’ve ever known !I remember there would be mornings when we’d both be outside getting our newspaper,and she’d wave hello ,I would walk on over there and start our little neighborly chat!Our chats would always end with “Le saludas a mi compadre”, referring to my special needs son Andrew! Her children and my dear friends Ernest and Mona are living proof of what a great person and mother she was!Olga and the Dominguez family will always hold a special place in my heart!Rest in peaceOlga!❤️

I had the honor and privilege of working with Olga. I enjoyed playing jokes on her and making her laugh.

She would always tell me , “Aye huerco mugroso “ she would laugh and hit my arm.

She was a hard worker, a dedicated employee and a true HEB Partner

May she Rest In Peace in the loving arms of our Lord Jesus Christ.

She will be missed
