Together they made their home in Austin, Texas where they welcomed a wonderful daughter, Iana Lee, and then a handsome son, Hoyt Dell. Ollie was a loved mother and grandmother who brought joy and laughter to all of those who were in her life. She was an amazing seamstress who put those skills to use throughout the years.

Ollie was an active member of the Onion Creek Senior Citizens and Buda United Methodist Church.

She will also be remembered by her loving friends the Israel, Chavarria, and Marks families. Memorial services will be held at 10 a.m., Saturday, May 28 at Buda United Methodist Church.
