Olga was a beautiful soul .with every one she comes in contact with.
May her soul rest in peace.
My family is truly saddened by the passing of Auntie Olga, with whom I remained in contact through calls, voice notes, the sharing of pictures and family updates. She was an illustrious member of our extended family - one of few to be called Mrs. Mitchell and the only remaining one at the time of her passing. Personally, I remember her several visits to Jamaica. She spent this time with dear family members in Linstead, St. Catherine (including her precious Brother Harry, other relatives) and in-laws in Arcadia District, St. Thomas. In particular, we looked forward to the visit by the Mitchell's family at Christmas time/ early January which was a period of great merriment. We made every effort to ensure that they had a good time, which included as much organic Jamaican foods as possible such as our staple dishes of breadfruit with ackee & saltfish and fried fish & bammy. As a teenager, I was fond of her use of make-up which she was always keen to bring back to Jamaica for me. I adored her cleanliness; there was no other person in this world that was as clean as Auntie Olga. During the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic when many countries were on lockdown, I even joked with her in a telephone conversation that if the world was as hygienic as her, then this virus would have never spread. She laughed endlessly on the phone because she knew it was true. Even when she visited Jamaica, she doubled down in the kitchen as she exemplified pristine household practices. She was a homemaker, a family woman and a believer in the true and living God. May her soul rest in peace and light perpetual shine on her.
How I would describe her.
She is love, kind, affectionate, selfless, no nonsense, caring. (eg) as a child growing up in Jamaica and she would visit us, the way how I see her care for family members and friends in the country, that she would make it her point of duty to visit, and shared whatever little she brought among us all ensuring that everybody was happy. To me that was priceless. even in our final days when she could not do much for herself she asked Pam to send my dad her baby brother whom she worried about a lot (Joseph Corriah) some money for her. she was more than a auntie to me, she was more like a mom. whenever I was having any problems she was the one that I would call and she would listen to me and try to give me her best advice. If she didn’t hear from me for a while she would send me a text or call to say I AM JUST CHECKING IN. The beauty about this all I have all these wonderful memories of my auntie Olga a.k.a. auntieTIBS that will always warm my heart whenever I think about her. she was laughter and forever will be missed.
