The Guest Book is expired.
September 25, 1930 - September 19, 2011
Olive, dearly beloved wife of Ian, died on Monday, September 19, 2011 at Agapé Hospice. Olive was born in Edinburgh, Scotland to Thomas Craig Ramage and Catherine Isabella Moors Cruickshank on September 25, 1930. Left to mourn her passing are her beloved husband Ian; her brother and sister-in-law Alan and Florence Ramage of Edinburgh, Scotland; and her nieces, great-nieces and nephew. Also the dear and faithful friends here in Calgary. Olive worked for many years in the operating room at the Old Children's Hospital on Richmond Road in Calgary, where she did her best to help sick children, "her children" as she called them. Olive loved her garden and along with Ian enjoyed testing out different fruits and vegetables. Neighbours and friends often came to inspect the very tiny kiwi fruit. Olive was an active member of the genealogy community, volunteering in both the Family History Centre and the Alberta Family Histories Library, both in Calgary.
God sent me an angel when I needed one,
now she is taken away.
