Olga was a very loving and caring person. Olga was a Mom or Grandma to everyone. No one she knew went without food or shelter. She was also a foster mother and a provider to many. Her heart was so big that there was always room for more. This legacy will live on in her children, and by many stories, through her grandchildren. She is so very sadly missed.
