This makes me so sad! Olga was a ray of sunshine as a volunteer at the Arcola Food Pantry for many years!
She always was very quick to help wherever she was needed, and had a laugh to share with those around her.
My heart goes out to Jose and also to Josie. Olga’s laugh and smile will live on forever in my heart.
