Olga was truly the rock of the family. She taught her children and grandchildren how to work hard, take pride in what you do and value the Ukrainian traditions passed down from the many generations of the family. Her home was adorned with an abundance of gardens and flowers that she worked hard to beautify ever year. She was a common-sense, no-nonsense woman who was of strong mind and strong spirit until her last moment.
Olga’s family would like to extend a special thank you to Dr. Ho, Dr. Munro, Dr. Sikkema and the staff at the London Regional Cancer Centre for the care they provided to their beloved mother.
