  • I would like to extend my condolences to your family. Mrs. Oliver was clearly a good, kind and loving woman that will be greatly missed by those in her life. It is obvious she lived a life filled with love. May you take comfort in the Bible’s promise at Revelations 21:4 that there will come a day when, God “will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more”. When that time comes, sad times such as these will be a thing of the past.

  • Prayers and thoughts to each family member in your time of loss and sorrow.may your special memories, lighten the burden of your hearts..

  • So sorry for the loss of your loved one. Helen was a classmate and have known her a long time. I will keep the Oliver family in my thoughts and prayers.

  • Dear Family , Was so sorry to hear of Helen’s passing. I worked with Helen many years at Dana Corp and I can truly say Helen was a very aware and intelligent person as well as dedicated to her work at Dana. I can attest to her gardening as well. During late summer she never failed to bring in her prize Hibiscus bloom to display at work, and to this day I have never seen a Hibiscus that size, our own included. She shared her Trumpet vine and her Fantasia fern with us which we have transplanted in different areas of our property and think of her often when they are in bloom. Please know that we do share your grief at this time and will be keeping you in our thoughts and prayers. Sincere Sympathy, Sam and Carleen Snell
