She was a resident at Marian Apts. from 1987 until her move to Ideal Senior Living in 2010. Olga's thirst for learning, inquisitive nature, and adventurous spirit lead to many personal accomplishments continuing through her senior years. She embraced new technology completing several computer classes with Southern Tier Senior Net, eventually helping to coach other seniors. Olga loved to read, especially about health and nutrition. Her hobbies included needlepoint, cross stitch, crotchet and craft projects that were lovingly made and given as gifts to family and friends. Olga worked at various jobs throughout her marriage, the last being at the former General Electric in Westover. She was a proud member of the Czechoslovakian - Moravian Club and passed on the richness of her ethnic heritage to her family. She loved to cook and bake and always made family gatherings extra-special. She was grateful to have witnessed and participated in the many activities and accomplishments of her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren, who were her pride and joy. Olga also enjoyed the company of the numerous family pets. She had a wonderful sense of humor and a fun-loving spirit. The family extends heartfelt gratitude and thanks to Dr. Shawn Berkowitz and the Staff at Ideal Senior Living Center Iris Place for the loving care provided to our Mom. We'd also like to thank Dr. Linda Fort and all of Mom's other healthcare providers throughout the years.
