I just read of Olive's passing. I have many vivid, positive memories of Olive, her husband Reverend Butler, and her children Joy and Paul living next door during my youth. Initially playing together as kids and then growing up neighbors. Olive and my Mom (Arleene Slocum-Meyers) were good friends and my Dad (Ken) was a good friend of Bill Butler.
One Olive memory that stuck was the time I was doing a report on WWII and she let me rummage through Rev. Butler's WWII memorabilia in their attic. It was captivating because my Dad died when I was young and I never remember hearing his stories of the war. Rev. Butler then let me interview him on his WWII recollections. I was captivated by his story of entering a Nazi Jewish death camp at the end of the war. Just the kind of man you would want as a chaplain.
Thank you Olive for being good to me on so many occasions. May you rest in PEACE.
I just heard of Olives passing. What can I say, Olive better known to me as "Love" was simply one of the neatest gals from my childhood memories. She welcomed me into her home daily, with warm fuzzies, a warm hug and a snack. When I couldn't say aluminum, she told me to call it "num" so I did. When I couldn't say Brazil nuts, she told me to call them "bra" nuts. Those words stuck for years. When I didn't have a father for a father daughter event, she gave me your father, Reverand Butler. I was her Sunday School helper and just loved that. Olive was wonderful and we all loved her. Prayers and blessings to you all. Susan
