"If ever there is a tomorrow when we are not together, there is something you must remember. You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem and smarter than you think. But, the most important thing is even if we are apart I'll always be with you" (Winnie the Pooh) It is with great sadness that we celebrate and pay tribute to the life of our loving Mother, Nana, G.G., Great G.G., Sister, Aunt and Friend. Olly was welcomed into this world by her loving parents Harry and Dorothea (Drozdowksy) Dutchak on October 2, 1925.
