We are so proud to be a part of her extended family. You only had to speak to Olivia once to realize that she was a loving, caring & warm hearted person. She will be missed by all who had the honor of knowing her.

How sad we were to hear about Olivia’s passing. Those we love leave us too soon.

Digi was whole-hearted in her efforts to support her late sister Janis at the first two RP Socials where we first met her. She and sister Anne (Bunny) chauffeured people to and from the airport, to and from events. For five days Digi, Mama Nan, and Bunny threw themselves tirelessly into making some 100 strangers feel at home thanks to their gracious Southern hospitality both Socials and at the Barbecues at the homestead.

Digi’s sense of fun, her warmth, and her loving nature will be missed in a world that has too few with these attributes.

I first met Olivia at the 2nd RP Social in Salisbury, and subsequently at the fall get-together a year later. She, Bunny, and Nan were tireless in their support of Janis in bringing together the RP group from far and wide, in marshaling the support of the Lions for assistance and transportation, and in making us all feel welcome. My condolences go out to Olivia’s family, and especially to Nan and Bunny.
