Sorry for the loss of your loved one. My mom and dad (Brownie & Stella Sexton ) often spoke of Ollie when we were small. We will keep your family in our thoughts and prayers.

I cherish many memories with Ollie. To me she was more a mama to me than my aunt.From a little boy to a grown man Ollie was a big influence in my life. I will miss her dearly and she will have a special place in my heart.

Ollie was a very special lady. She was kind and loving and adored by her/my grandchildren Heather and Josh. My heart goes out to all of the family she leaves behind especially my son-in-law Tim who dearly loved his mother. She will live on in the hearts of those who loved her through precious memories that were made during her 91 years. I pray that God will bless her family and bring them peace knowing she is not suffering and is now in the arms of our Lord .
