Olive spent six restful years at Heritage Square in Vernon, BC where she received excellent care and companionship. Olive especially liked Thursday sing-songs at which “Have I Told You Lately That I Love You” was her favorite song.
The doctors and nurses at Vernon Jubilee Hospital were exceptional during her brief stay there.
Olive passed away at the age of 89. We know she was peaceful as she was singing “Jesus Loves Me” several days before passing.
A family memorial service will be held at a later date at St. Anne’s Church at the O’Keefe Ranch at Vernon, BC where the memorial service for her husband Al was held in 1990.
