Olive W. Buckworth

AGE: 85 • Middletown

Olive W. Buckworth, age 85, of Middletown, DE, passed away at Seasons Hospice in the Christiana Hospital on July 6, 2014.

Olive was the daughter of Jesse and Beulah Woolleyhan and was raised on the family farm in Earleville, MD.

She was preceded in death by her husband Albert Buckworth and her three brothers Raymond (Jake), William and Noland (Dickie) Woolleyhan.

Olive is survived by her two children; Jessica Buckworth of Odessa, DE and Ben Buckworth and his wife Lisa of Salt Lake City, UT as well as numerous cousins.

Olive was incredibly proud of her children and took extreme joy in watching them grow, their successes and spending time with them. She was a wonderful wife, mother, mentor and friend. She had a great sense of humor, kind, and giving. Olive was truly loved by all who knew her and will be missed dearly by her family and friends.

The family would like to extend their sincere thanks and gratitude to Bill (Shorty), Jean and Dawn Buckworth, neighbors, and the staff of Seasons Hospice. Without their care and support, this most difficult situation would have been unbearable.

A visitation will be held on Thursday, July 10th, 2014 at Daniels & Hutchison Funeral Home, 212 North Broad Street, Middletown, DE from 11 to 12 Noon. Services and burial are private.

In lieu of flowers donations in Olive's memory can be sent to Season's Hospice and Palliative Care of Delaware, 220 Continental Drive, Suite 101, Newark, DE 19713.
