    I knew Olga from working in the office with her at Bobbie Brooks many years ago. She was one of the kindest, sweetest and happy ladies that I have ever known. Every day was a good day when she was there. I agree with the statement that she loved to bake; she brought goodies to work and we couldn't stop eating them until they were all gone. May she rest in peace and be in God's loving hands forever and ever.
