Grandmom, we love you and are eternally grateful for the influence, love and support you infused into our lives.. Yours and grandad’s legacy survives well beyond the love that brought the two of you together. We are who we are because of the two of you. I rejoice with you in being reunited with the sweet souls who’ve gone before and will anticipate a day we will be together again. Love you a bushel and a peck...Christy (Bill), granddaughter, Claire & Bennett, great-grandchildren

Olena was such a sweet soul. She simply wouldn't let me call her Mrs Polk. It had to be Olena. I loved our visits and our talks. I will miss her dearly.
