Predeceased by her parents Oswood and Edith, three brothers Oswood, Wilbur and George, and her husbands Sidney Steeves and Angus Campbell.

She is survived by her daughters Mary Harrison and Victoria Osler as well as a multitude of loving relatives and friends. Olga was renowned for her prize winning blackberry jelly, her beautiful needle point and knitting and her interest in genealogy. Her love of the outdoors was always prominent during her life on Vancouver Island. Walking was a passion that earned the name “The Greyhound”.
