Olga Narcisa Branson

October 29, 1935September 13, 2018

Olga Branson-Guevara, born October 29th, 1935 in Ciudad Bolivar, Venezuela passed away peacefully in her home in Katy, TX, surrounded by her family on the morning of September 13th, 2018. She was the daughter of Manuel and Isabel Guevara and the oldest of nine children.

Throughout her childhood, Olga spent much of her time learning how to maintain a home while assisting her mother raise her eight younger siblings. She was always very involved in the local community, was a famed radio singer and even crowned Queen in her hometown.

She began working in the main office of Mene Grande (Gulf Oil Company) at the age of 17 and met her husband a few years later: Olga and Cecil married in the Catholic Church in 1957. They went on to raise their four children, Mary Isabel, Jacqueline Louise, Ann Cecilia, and Charles Henry throughout Venezuela, Brazil, Mexico and Argentina, before settling in Orlando and then in the Houston area.

She was the matriarch of the family and took great joy every Christmas in preparing over one hundred Hallacas for all her children to fight over. Olga was also an avid gardener and took pride in maintaining her yard and flowers, but her greatest accomplishment is the endless and selfless love she shared for everyone around her.

She is survived by her devoted husband Cecil Hubert Branson Jr. of 61 years. She will always be remembered for her easy smile, contagious laugh and beautiful personality.

A memorial service will be held on the 6th of October 2018 at the Katy Funeral home (23350 Kingsland Blvd) at 3:00 PM, with reception to follow 4:00-6:00 PM.

I always remember Mrs. Branson in the River Plantation days with a big beautiful smile across her face even when her four children (and when I was there five) were going in every which direction as fast as they could, but there she was... smiling! I have no doubt that smile is still shining brightly. Rest in peaceful slumber Mrs. Branson. To the family, my heartfelt thoughts and condolences.
