We are sad to announce Olive's sudden passing.
Olive was born and raised in Britain, and joined her husband James in Nigeria for a term before settling the family in Winnipeg. Whether you came to know Olive in the UK, through Grosvenor School where she worked as a secretary, or through writing for the Scribblers group, her personality was infectious, and she will be missed by many.
Olive maintained a large correspondence throughout her life with her brother and sisters and their families in Britain. She was loved by her family and many close friends.
Thank you Tuxedo Villa for the meticulous care that Olive received.

Condolences & Memories (2 entries)

  • Olive gave me a book she had written many years ago relating her life in Nigeria with Jim. I believe it was called "From here to there and in between". She will be remembered as a kind, cordial lady. My condolences to her family. - Posted by: Mary Holding (Acquaintance) on: Jan 11, 2021

  • I knew Olive, she was a very good person. I was a secretary at River Heights Junior High for 27 years. Sorry to hear about her passing, not many of us left. I am 92 years old. - Posted by: betty curnew (friend) on: Dec 31, 2020
