You were not only a fantastic teacher of Italian, but of life! I feel blessed to have you as a teacher for four years and share all your wonderful life and love stories...still talking about them today. Heaven will be honored with your presence.
Pearl always made everyone feel important. She would comfort you in hard times and laugh with you in good times. She was like an open encyclopedia with her knowledge of everything from apples to zoology. She will be greatly missed by all.
I always admired Pearl for all she accomplished in her life
She was kind, interesting and thoughtful
She was one of the most interesting persons I know. I wish I had taken the time to see more
Of her. She was wonderful to her parents and I
Truly admired her for that . She had a very interesting life
And found love late in life. I hope that she and Fran
Are now together again. She is at peace and
I will keep her in my thoughts. She will be missed by many
I had the good fortune of having Miss Oliva for Latin1 at Framingham North. And as a 2nd generation Italian, I would love it when she would share her stories of her travels in Italy. And my parents would truly enjoy the radio show! My sincere condolences to your family. Donna DeLuca Hegarty
"Miss Oliva" had infinite patience and love for all of her "kids". I feel blessed to have had her as a teacher. She was truly a wonderful person.
