Ollie grew up near Cloverdale, Ill., where she attended St. Isidore's Catholic School. She married Clarence (Jake) Gilmore on April 16, 1942.

She was preceded in death by her husband Clarence; daughter Janice Gilmore; her parents, Leo and Margaret Pauling; brothers Orrin (Ruth), Len, Robert and Richard (Arlene) Pauling; sisters Carol Seddon and Pearl Pauling; and great-granddaughter, Peyton Jane Bero.
