She truly lived a life of Christ. The family thanks Trinity Pathway Hospice for all of their help.
Olga is survived by her son and daughter-in-law, Tony and Sandy Jordan of Coal Valley; five grandchildren, Scott Jordan, Jon Janowski, Stephanie Inness, Denise Harris and Little Tony Jordan and their spouses; 18 great-grandchildren, who all had their lives touched by Olga in many special ways; and 11 great-great-grandchildren.
