Condolences

Condolence From: Tim Blumenschein
Condolence: To Peter, Kathy and Tom I offer the sincerest condolences and sympathies on the passing of your Mother on behalf of my wife Wendy and my brothers Andrew and David.
I remember well the first time I met Olga in 1969 when Peter invited me over for dinner. It was shepards pie and and my first experience with HP sauce (which became a staple on my future hiking trips with Peter).
Mrs. Foley always had a kind word and she usually provided Peter and I with a good bit of sound advice before we set out to the mountains.
She was always easy to converse with and I'll always remember her laugh.
I will miss you Olga...

Condolence From: Terry
Condolence: Dear Mother In Law… the time has come for me to say goodbye.

The term mother-in-law always seems to carry a bit of a negative connotation, but with Olga, none of those typical mother-in-law things were characteristic. She was never nosey, or bossy, or prone to dispensing unwelcome opinions or advice. In fact, she was a quiet and gracious lady, her only request was to take care of her daughter. Our many visits were very sweet as long as the offerings that I bestowed upon her included a sweet pastry, candy or a piece of chocolate, then she was excited to see me.

Some of the many life lessons Olga taught me were as follows:

• Tea is to be sipped from a tea cup and not a mug. Milk is to be poured into a cup prior to pouring the tea and for heaven sakes, wrap that d*mn tea pot in a cozy while it steeps for some God unknown reason. Her tea was always hot and didn’t need a thermal layer to keep it warm!

• If you coming to visit, make sure you know where the finest bakery shop in the area is located. She loved her pastries, cookies and sweets. And If it wasn’t for her, I would still be looking for hot cross buns 12 months a year, not knowing they are mostly popular at Easter.

• That good Chocolate is NOT to be shared. Olga was very generous but keep your hands off her Chocolate!

• And it’s perfectly acceptable to use your knife as a fork when eating mashed potatoes or peas. The very first time I saw her do that I really thought she was going to visit her maker sooner than later.

• And to close off… if your tall enough to see through the steering wheel… than you are still able to drive. I was NEVER in a car with Olga driving but I do understand why she always had such a large “boat” of a car.

So there it is, putting thought to paper is a bit harder than I imagined, so I just want to say thank you once again for the very generous gift you gave me many years ago.

It was just a week ago that your daughter and I celebrated our 25th anniversary. Your gift of creating such a beautiful and loving creature is more than I could ever ask for. She completes my living and for that, Olga I say thank you.

I will be forever grateful to the lord for the gift of Olga Foley, as Olga in turn gave me her greatest gift, Kathleen.

NOTE: She still gets the last word. As I tried to post this, it was rejected for using a few unsavory words, my addition on the Captcha was wrong and two spelling mistakes. Love you Mrs. Foley!

Condolence From: Christina Milaney
Condolence: Our mothers were friends from the first time they met decades ago in Sarcee Meadows Housing Coop. They took part in community events together and were a vital part of our community. And as friends they departed this life almost together. I am so sorry for the loss of your mum. Tom you took such good care of her and you are a wonderful son. I have not met the rest of your family but if you are any example of the type of child Olga raised, she was a very special Mother. Hopefully the happy memories you have of your time together will help you through this difficult time.
