Olivia E. Higginbotham Obituary
April 26, 1919 - October 30, 2017 Beloved mother and Grammy, 98, died peacefully in her Bellflower home. She was born in Minot, North Dakota, to Arthur J. Charlebois and Ellen Charlebois (Vollan). Though her 6 brothers and sisters are deceased, she remained close to their families. She moved to Anderson, Indiana, to continue her business education, and later achieved her AA degree in CA. She married the love of her life Bill, dancing throughout their 69-year marriage. They moved to Los Angeles and later Downey to raise their 5 girls, Diane Diyorio, Pamela Preiss (deceased), Jeannette Higginbotham, Grace Forman, and Mary Lawrence. Her family was centered around love of God, holiday fun and St. Dominic Savio Catholic Church. She is survived by her daughters, grandchildren, close relatives, dear neighborhood and church friends. We have been blessed to share her joy for life and love of nature. Vigil and Rosary Sunday, Nov. 12, 7pm, and Funeral Mass and reception Wednesday, Nov. 15, 10am, both at Saint Dominic Savio Church, 13400 Bellflower Blvd., Bellflower, CA 90706.
