Olga left a teach­ing ca­reer in Pick­er­ing to raise her three chil­dren. Mom was an avid reader, quil­ter and bridge player. She was a mem­ber of the Quilters Guild in King City, and the King Crafters for many years. As her eye­sight failed she joined Probus, and the CNIB Book Club. To con­tinue with her pas­sion for read­ing, Mom switched to au­dio books, and could be found lis­ten­ing to them con­stantly. Mom and Dad spent many sum­mers at their cot­tage on Lake Joseph in Muskoka for over 50 years. A spe­cial thank you to her care­giver John D’Amata for his ex­cel­lent care and friend­ship over the past eight years.
