My condolences to all of her family members. I’ve known Olie since 1969. She was my other mother. Always treated me like a member of the family. Through 24 years in the Army, and 20 years as an Army Contractor Instructor, I always had a welcome home to go to when visiting Colorado Springs. I loved her and will miss her. Rest in peace, Mom!

Condolences from my mom Maria (Ruth) Arkel and myself. Olie was a part of my our lives when we were living in Colorado. She was a good friend to my mom and I was able to spend many days at her house while I was being taken care of by her and her family as my mom was a single mother. We lost contact but she remains a great memory and influence on me and my life!
