Olive was such a dear friend of my mother, Pauline Bennett, who passed away in November. They were neighbors in Rock Island and my mom so enjoyed her company, phone conversations, and the precious gifts she so generously gave my mother. Thank you, Olive, for loving my mom. She loved you, too.

Oh my goodness. Dear Olive. My Mom loved her so (Pauline Bennett). My sister, Rhonda, and I stopped by to see Olive after my mom passed away. She said she would be moving soon to receive more care. She was always interested in others, loved to talk of her family, and blessed so many with her love; the love someone has when Jesus is in their soul. I remember our talks of Major and Maverick and how she loved those boys.
My condolences to all of you. I will remember Olive fondly.
In sympathy and love,
Margot (bennett) Hary
