March 11,1930 -Oct. 5, 2015

It is with great sadness that we say goodbye to our beloved mother, grandmother, sister, aunt and friend. Olive was born March 11th, 1930 at Bashaw. Her aspiration to be a teacher was changed when she had to help care for her mom who had developed rheumatoid arthritis. Olive married Robert Church August 23, 1950 and lived on the family farm near Nevis til her passing October 5th.

Surviving family: sister, Dorothy Radakovich; sisters-in-law Ruby Church and Martha Inions and special friend John Wittwer along with his family, children, Judy White, Beaverlodge, Ron, Nevis, Bonnie (Bill) Papineau, Didsbury, Jim (Chris), Bonnyville, grandchildren, Troy, Ronny Rae (Jason), Carla (Tina), Nadine, Michelle (Jeff), Denise, Taylor (Kyle), Matthew (Amber), Lucas (Brenda), Justin, Jonas, great grand children, Dallyn, Shasta, Mikayla,Trinity, Kendal, Ayden and Layne, numerous neices, nephews and friends. Predeceased by parents Beatrice and Brian Inions, siblings Jewell Lindemann and Victor; Son-in-law Al; Brothers and sisters-in-law-Hans, Jack and Margaret, Eugene, Carl and Laura, Percy and Marge, Bruce and Gladys.

Olive loved the farm and devoted her life to doing whatever had to be done to make the farm function. She would rather be outside in the field or garden than doing housework, picking raspberries was one of her most favourite things to do. She never complained about the hard work that came with this way of life.

Her church and community were very important and she donated many hours to the Nevis community club, enjoying monday coffee group and pot lucks.

There will be a memorial service October 18th at 3pm at the Evangelical Free Church of Erskine. Following this, a luncheon will be served at the Nevis Hall by the Nevis Community Club.
