Olga passed away suddenly on March 4th, 2015.
Olga was born in Langendorf, Austria but her Dad moved the family to Canada when she was 6 years old. They settled in the Vernon area. She married Joe Beck and had a daughter, Margaret. A few years after Joe’s death during WW2, Olga married Amos Honeyman and had a son, David. They lived in Kelowna and Lavington before eventually relocating to Castlegar. She remained there after Amos’ death in 1972 but later moved to her mobile home in town. She enjoyed the trees, garden and beautiful Hydrangea plants. She loved to take photos and share them with everyone. Card games were a favorite pastime with family and friends. Olga was glad to be able to live on her own, saying “if you don’t use it, you’ll lose it”.
Olga will be remembered for her sweet and cheerful nature. She especially loved the Bible and happily spent her life as one of Jehovah’s Witnesses.
Olga was predeceased by both her husbands, Joe and Amos, as well as by all her siblings. She will be greatly missed by her surviving family: daughter Margaret Thomas and son David (Carol) Honeyman; grandchildren: Tracy, Tamara (Rob), Tara, Cory (Carly), Jordan (Brianna), Sandon (Ellesa) & Kal; great-grandchildren: MacKenzie-Lynn, Mitchell, Riley & Flynn; Sister-in-law: Maxine (Roy) McMahon; Brother-in-law: Almer Stanley; as well as many nephews and nieces.
Funeral service to be held on March 14, 2015 at 2:00pm at the Kingdom Hall of Jehovah’s Witnesses at 1680 Woodland Drive, Castlegar
