Inez D. Oliva passed away on January 18, 2013. Her family loved and adored her. She leaves Rosemary, Bill, Adam, Matthew, Tomoko, Olivia, Roy, and Patrick. Also survived by brothers Henry and Alex. Preceded in death by husband Fred, daughter Georgia, and brother Guido. Inie set an example to us in so many ways. She was a lady to be admired for her work ethic, her ability to love, her gentleness to all and her kindness to animals. Nobody had gardens as beautiful as hers. Rest in peace, Mom. As time goes by, you will forever be with us.
