PRYMA – Ollie Elsie
1928 – 2006
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved sister and aunt, Ollie, nicknamed T “O” by her nieces and nephews. Ollie passed away on January 5, 2006 at the Foothills Hospital with her family at her side.
Ollie was born July 3, 1928 and raised in Regina, SK and worked at the Wheat Pool and Chevron Oil Company. She was transferred to Calgary by Chevron and worked in the Human Resources Department. Ollie was a warm, loving and compassionate person with a great sense of humour. Little children were a source of joy to her and she took great delight in entertaining them. Ollie loved to sing and was a member of the choir for many years.
