The first time I met her she treated me as if I were family. I met her while living in Germany, she had come to visit Gladys; we called my mom back in the states. They spoke and laughed so hard. It was cute. Afterwards she turned to me and gave me the biggest mom hug ever; she says that’s from your mom. 💛She was so warm and loving each time I saw her. Truly an Amazing person; one of the purest kindest souls I’ve ever met.

My condolences to all of Olga’s family and prayers to you during these days of sadness. I didn’t know her but I know her daughter Gladys from the Army. Based on what I have been seeing with tributes to her she was an amazing woman and someone that made a huge positive impact on the world.. But she also raised an amazing daughter who carry’s on that same positive impact on the world and that says a lot about the mother she was. Gladys I’m so sorry you are going through these tough days and I pray you find peace in all the good memories you shared with your mom over the years. Sending many hugs and prayers to all of your family.

My hermosa Tia Olga was and will always be one of the strongest and most amazing person God gave us in our family. Always with a warm smile to share with everyone. I enjoyed her visits and to see her interact with her younger sister, my Mom. Never a dull moment when they were together. Will always remember her happy and positive attitude. May God grant her eternal peace.

Ms. Quiroga ocupa un lugar muy especial en mi corazón, ya que desde el primer día que llegue a Funston ella me recibió con una sonrisa y me ofreció su apoyo en lo que necesitara. En ese momento yo estaba tan nerviosa por la transición en la que estaba pasando al ingresar a un nuevo ambiente, pero al mirar la sonrisa de Ms. Quiroga y escuchar sus palabras tan sinceras y llenas de ternura me dio tranquilidad y me hizo sentir que estaba en casa. Desde ese día siempre disfruté de las pequeñas conversaciones que teníamos durante el lunch y en la mañanas cuando llegaba a recoger a sus niños del salón. Su sonrisa está grabada en mi corazón.
Por siempre en mi corazón Ms. Quiroga!

Hablar de Olga es transportarme a mi epoca de Juventud, nos conocimos en una boda en la cual Yo no conocia a los novios ni sabia quienes eran, pero Dios quiso que esa oportunidad la conociera a ella y gracias a eso se covirtio en mi Cuñada, para mi tiempo de noviasgo ella fue nuestra chaperona, para todo tenia que ir con nosotros, siempre con la mejor actitud, se convirtio en nuestra complice de muchas cosas, después comenzo su noviasgo con Gil y le llego el tiempo de formar una muy bonita Familia, siempre supo lo que queria y lo logro a base de luchar, sacrificar y con la meta muy clara y lo logro, Dios sabe el dolor tan grande que tengo por su partida, me duele mucho mi Corazón por que ahi siempre habra un lugar para ella por el tiempo que yo este en este mundo, el consuelo que tengo es que Ella esta viendo el rostro de Dios, y esta en un lugar mejor, por que ya No esta sufriendo, y se que desde alla estara "abogando" por todos nosotros su Familia quienes la quisimos tal y como ella era, la recordaré como siempre fue, una mujer muy Alegre, una gran Hermana, una gran Esposa, una gran Abuela, una gran Tia, una gran Maestra, y para mi "Una gran Cuñada", descansa en Paz Olga.

My forever memories will be of her beautiful big smile and personality to match. She was always kind and loving. I can still hear her voice and picture her dancing to music. Thank you for gracing us with your spirit. We will continue to rejoice in our memories together.

Dear Mrs. Quiroga family
My prayers are with you in this time of sorrow and ask the Lord to give you strength to continue on.
I met Mrs. Quiroga when she came to work at Funston. I'm the payroll clerk .
We had wonderful talks about family and she was so excited with the born of her granddaughter.
I can tell you she was a great teacher and a great human being, and bet a great MOM. When she went to Funston a few weeks ago, came to see me to show up her new style. "Look Maria, just like you I left my gray hair" made me laughed. I will miss her. God Bless you all. So know she will always live in our HEARTS. So when you feel sad, touch your heart, the beating is telling you. "I'm here" She will always be with you.
Much Love
Maria
