My fondest memory of Olive was from a trip that my company provided to Malaysia. One day during the trip, we took a nature hike through a jungle that was quite hilly. Olive, even though she was much older than other people on the tour, got up and down the hills, through the creeks and dodged the tree limbs and roots MUCH better than people half her age. On this jungle hike, she was dressed in a wild blouse and was making a fashion statement all the way. Olive's love of life and her undeniable spirit were on full display on this jaunt. My sincere condolences to her family, friends and all who knew Olive who will miss her.

I am so very sorry for your loss and will keep you all I’m my prayers. I have to say it was an honor to get to know Olive. She was an amazing lady. So full of life, love and compassion. She sure did love to go out to listen to her favorite bands and was upbeat, loved the music, and was young at heart. I do know she loved her family as well and raised some amazing children who grew up to be amazing adults. Wish I got the chance to know all her children. I did get to know Leif one of her sons. He too is amazing and made sure his mom was well taken care of. Took her to listen to the bands here in Omaha. I know she loved you Leif with all her heart. Again she will be missed. Keeping you in my prayers. Let me know if I can help in any way. Love you Olive ❤️❤️ You will definitely be missed ❤️❤️
