    I will miss my mother-in-law dearly. My daughter Brooke and I had such fun times with Grandma Olive – shopping, going out to lunch, or to the fair, or just visiting at her Escanaba home having tea and cookies together and reminiscing about Brooke’s Dad-Clyde. When we got together with Uncle Harvey, Aunt Mona and Bev, the stories really flowed with lots of laughter!

    My aunt Olive was a great lady! I have a lot of good memories of her that I’ll always remember. She’s been through some hard times in her life,but she was one stong lady who had a strong faith. I wish I could be there to say good-bye. I sure am going to miss her.My sympathy to everyone who loved her.
