During her lifetime, she moved to California, Utah, Idaho and back to Utah again with her family. Mom raised 8 children and made hard work her every day event. She never faltered at work in the restaurant business or at home. She taught all of us the meaning of life through the blessings of God, unselfishness and sacrifice.
Mom loved to cook for her family and friends. Gumbo, tamales and black-eyed peas were among some favorites, and they are recipes we all have in our kitchens today. She loved to fish and would get up early in the morning to take us fishing and be back in time for school. Mom loved to take trips to visit family and friends everywhere.
Mom is survived by her daughters Cynthia Olivier, Jackie Olivier, JoAnn (Gary) Dalton, Sabrina (Janet) Morgan, and her son Randy (Linda) Olivier, 4 grandchildren and 4 great grandchildren. She was preceded in death by her sons Richard, Kenneth, and Gregory. A special thank you to our sister Jackie for all her care and devotion to Mom in the last few years.
