Olga was a member of St. Christine Church and the Arie No. 3298 Eagles. She enjoyed painting ceramics, baking her horseshoe Christmas cookies, picking blueberries and watching Elvis. Olga was very proud of her Hungarian heritage and she loved her Polkas. Her greatest love was for her family, especially her generous time spent with her grandchildren and great grandchildren. Olga was known for her great sense of humor and she will be deeply missed.

Olga leaves her daughter, Deborah Hammond of Canfield; her son, Gerald Gnapp of Boardman; her son-in-law, Fred Wolf of Canfield; a brother, George Boldizar of Gallitzin; six grandchildren; and nine great-grandchildren.
