  • Butch, John and Donna.
    I send my deepest sympathies to you all. The years I spent at Point with Olga as my aide were some of the best times I had in my career. We had more laughs and it was my pleasure to know her.
    I speak of her often and tell some of the crazy stories that are still funny today.
    I am sorry I won’t be able to attend the services. We are leaving on vacation.
    I will keep her in my prayers.
    May she rest in peace.

  • We remember Olga and John because of the many times they brought Aunt Amelia and Uncle Chester back to Niagara Falls. She was the life of the party with so many stories and her special way of telling them. We last saw her at the DiRamio Family Reunion and she still had that special way to make everyone in the room smile and laugh. She will always be remembered in so many special ways. Our condolences go to her entire family.

  • I’ll always remember Auntie’s fun spirit. When I was 6, I had a loose tooth that I just kept playing with. She said ‘let me take a look at it – I won’t pull it out’ . Of course, she yanked it out in a second and we all laughed.
    She’ll be missed.

  • Olga was one of a kind. She will be missed. My condolences to John and Robin and the rest of the family. She is in our prayers. May she rest in peace

  • Olga was beloved by all of us at Broad Meadows Middle School where she worked “officially” as an attendance aide, but unofficially she was Broad Meadows’ best Kindness Ambassador to parents, visitors and especially students.
    Broad Meadows still remembers the phone call Olga answered one day. It was a call from actor Jamie Lee Curtis (True Lies). This call was totally out of the blue, but nothing flustered Olga. Olga conversed with Jamie Lee for several minutes. Laughs filled the air. Finally Olga asked Jamie Lee how she could help Jamie Lee. Jamie Lee explained she called to find out how to make a donation to one of Broad Meadows’ student led social justice campaign – “A School for Iqbal.”
    Jamie lee mentioned the donation would be in the name of her 11 year old daughter and her dad. Olga asked politely and innocently how to spell her dad’s name. Jamie Lee paused for a long moment. Olga patiently waited, pencil in hand. Then Olga let out a very loud scream. “My goodness! Your father is Tony Curtis? I love Tony Curtis movies. Jamie Lee added that she, too, was an actor, but Olga wanted to talk about her dad’s movies. Lots of laughs followed. We can only imagine the conversation Jamie Lee and Olga were enjoying during that call. A few days later a very generous donation from “The Curtis Family” arrived at Broad Meadows. Olga was so proud to have helped. In truth, Olga was helping someone every day. Olga is remembered with love for her many kindnesses.
