She was preceded in death by her husband Phil (Philip Otis) Hurst (who passed away on December 6, 1986) and by her father, mother, sister Wealtha Peacock Johnson Lund, and brother Charles Richard Peacock. She resided in Fairview, Manti, Provo, Salt Lake City, and St. George, Utah.

She married Phil at Coalville, Utah, September 10, 1933. They were later sealed for time and eternity on April 25, 1981 in the Manti LDS Temple.

In January 1934, Olive and Phil returned to Fairview, Utah and opened the Travel Inn Café with Jack (John Frank) and Hortense H. Stewart. This partnership continued for twenty-five years until Jack and Hortense retired and the Café was sold. At this time, Phil was employed by the U.S. Forest Service and Olive went to work as a checker for Safeway at Mt. Pleasant, Utah where she worked for ten years. She then went to work at First Security Bank at Mt. Pleasant as a teller and worked until retirement.

As a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, she held positions in Mutual, Relief Society, and the library.

Olive always said she had a good life, surrounded by caring family and friends including many loving nieces and nephews, who always made her feel welcome into their lives, especially her brother's daughter Judith (Judy) Sharon Sevcik, who cared for her like a loving daughter.

In return, her warm loving heart and cherry optimistic nature blessed everyone who knew her. She made many friends wherever she went and was deeply loved.

The family expresses appreciation to the staff and her many friends at The Meadows Assisted Living Center, The Coral Desert Rehabilitation Center, and The Kindred Nursing and Rehabilitation Center, all of St. George, Utah.
