After moving to California in 1968, Olive became an accomplished artist and potter; she was awarded South Bay "Best Fine Artist" in 2002.

Olive was a 39 year resident of Hermosa Beach and active member of the Manhattan Beach Community Church. She was preceded in death by her husband, Gene; brother, Maurice; and sister, Jennie. Olive is survived by her loving daughter, Linda; son-in-law, Gary; beloved granddaughters, Deborah and Kimberly; niece, Melinda; and nephews Roger, John, and Patrick. A "Celebration of Life" service will be held at the Manhattan Beach Community Church on Tuesday, March 25, 2008, at 1:00PM; interment will be with her husband's ashes at Arlington National Cemetery in Virginia.

  1. I will dearly miss such a wonderful friend and neighbor. Thank you for being a part of my life, Olive. You were certainly one of a kind – such a great spirit and so full of life. Rest in peace, with the seagulls and dolphins, and with your loved ones who have passed before you. You leave us all with so many wonderful memories, Olive, but mostly I will never forget your kindness and your laugh. Love, Stan
