Olga was born on a farm near Flat Valley, SK and grew up in the area. In Grade 12 Olga lived with her Aunt Olga and went to school in Meadow Lake, SK. Once she graduated from high school, she attended teacher's college at the University of Saskatchewan. In the fall of 1961, she interned at Gull Lake, SK where she met and fell in love with another teacher, Lorne Sakatch. They were married on June 30, 1962 and while living in Gull Lake their children, Keith and Laura were born. In 1967 the family relocated to Weyburn, SK. Since Olga was new to the area, she joined Beta Sigma Phi and was involved with the Weyburn Concert Series where she made many friends. Olga was a stay-at-home Mom and enjoyed knitting and sewing. Over the year's she taught many people how to knit. When her kids were in junior high she decided to join the work force. Most of her career was in the office at the Weyburn Psychiatric Centre. When her position was eliminated, she went to work for her friends Barb and Ken Petrescu at Superior Office Products. When Olga retired, she found a new passion - golf! On any given day you could find her at the Weyburn Golf Course. Her grandkids didn't share her love of golf, but they did enjoy driving the golf cart. In the winter Olga enjoyed her daily walks and opportunities to connect with friends and neighbors. Olga also enjoyed reading, crossword puzzles, Sudoku and lots of different crafts. Olga looked forward to spending time with her grandkids. She attended many sporting events, birthday parties and piano recitals. She was so excited to be a Great-Grandma. Olga and Lorne are now reunited in heaven. Donations in memory of Olga may be made to the Heart & Stroke Foundation. No formal services will be held at this time.
