Our beloved Mother died at her Care Home in Union City, CA. She was 94 years "young" and was born in Milton-Freewater, Oregon. She leaves her three children Thomas Glen Oliver of Salem, Oregon, Jerald Lee Oliver of Fremont, California and Jacqueline Beth Nielsen of South Lake Tahoe, California. She has 12 grandchildren ( 3 deceased ), 14 great grandchildren and 5 great great grandchildren.Ê
Our father, James Glen Oliver, died in September Ê1977.Ê
She retired from the State of California Bay Toll Crossings and was in charge of hiring the Êtoll collector personnel on the Northern California toll bridges.After retiring from that job she was employed for several years as a church secretary for the Hayward United Methodist Church.
She retired from that job and spent the rest of her life travelling back and forth from the Bay Area and South Lake Tahoe.Ê
During her employment and retired years she taught sunday school and the womens Bible Study at her church.Ê
She had a love of the outdoors, the snow at Lake Tahoe, growing her flowers and she loved helping people. Mom made every place she lived a happier place. Her hugs, her infectious smile, her laughter, her famous chocolate fudge at Christmas time, her jokes will be missed.
In her families hearts she was always the Mother of the Year every year. Her Christian example will be remembered for ever and her prayers for us and others will be sorely missed everyday.Ê
I Love YOU Mom. "A bushel and a peck and a hug around Your neck".
