This Obituary Has 3 Condolences

  1. I’m Theresa’s oldest daughter Nancy. She had been sick for along time, we are going to miss her. I loved to set with her and listen to the young side of my Mom. She had six kids, all were dressed, she cooked dinner ever night I never remember of her not making sure all of us had food. My Dad Marvin died when I was eight years old. She went to work at the telephone company to try and support all of us. She made some of our clothes, we went to church every week. She did not know how to drive so we walked to church every Sunday cold or hot we were there to be educated in our faith. This past year has been bad she’s gone through a lot and been sick a lot. It got to the point she would not even get out of bed. Anna found her relation, and a friend to watch her. But these people were not really caregivers, thus she got worse. It broke my heart she stayed in bed, no TV, radio just her rosery. The last I seen of my Mom the day she died she opened her eyes and said she loved me. That was the best day I ever had in my life, she spoke. I’m going to miss her. But I’m glad she’s in Heaven with our Lord God. No more suffering.

  2. Dear grieving family, my deepest condolences so sorry for your loss. May the God of all comfort strengthen you for the days ahead. Know that caring thoughts are with you. That “He heals the brokenhearted; He binds up their wounds, according to Psalm 147:3.

  3. Mrs. Olme was such a doll!
    She always greeted me with a smile and a warm hug!
    We would laugh and chuckle about finding boyfriends and then she would tell me to find mine first because I was getting old.
    To her family, please know that you have my deepest condolences.
    She will always be loved, cherished, and missed unconditionally!
