Family always came first for Olive.

She was good at math and loved word games, and was an excellent organizer. She made sure all of her children got a good education. She started all of her children on music lessons at a young age. Mom and Dad enjoyed being snowbirds and spending winters in South Texas for a number of years. After living and raising their family in Ottawa for over 50 years, Mom and Dad cleared out their attic and moved to a new home in Columbus Grove in 1997, where they enjoyed meeting new friends.
