Olive L. Fussey

April 3, 1920 – September 30, 2015

I did it! I said I would live to be 95.

“Live life to the fullest, love all God’s creatures, laugh every day.”

I was born at home on April 3,1920 in Coldwell Municipality, Manitoba to Tom V. and M. Lillie (Clegg) Thompson (predeceased). Also predeceased by sister Sybil, brothers Dave, Ben, Les and Bill. At age 18 I married my childhood sweetheart, Charles W. Fussey whom I met at age 5, he was 10. We celebrated our 65th anniversary in 2003 before his passing in 2005. Our marriage first took us to Trail, BC then to Abbotsford, living there for the remainder of our lives. I was blessed with two children; Tom (Laura) Meadow Creek, BC and Barbara (Dave) Gazso of Bradner, BC. They in turn gave me my most cherished possessions, grandchildren: Tom-Leanne (John) Mantha, Tomas, Megan(Jere) Prout, Lindsay and 5 great granddaughters – Lauren, Sierra, Abia, Kali and Lacey. Barbara – Lee (Christine), Amber (Mike) Windle and 3 great granddaughters- Sydney, Coco and Macartney. I was a charter member of the Women’s Auxilary to the Royal Canadian Legion Branch 15 for 65 years. My passion was bowling, belonging to various leagues for 45 years. As an original member of the MSA Riding club I volunteered at many events my daughter participated in with the club. When my granddaughter Amber also became involved with horses, I seldom missed a show and attended the PNE 4-H week with the Mt. Lehman 4-H horse club as their token Grandma. I especially loved attending the Bradner softball games when my grandson Lee was playing. I would like to extend a heartful thank you to the wonderful dedicated staff at Bevan Village where I happily have spent my last years. My family will be celebrating this glorious life next summer when they all can be in attendance. Please remember me by donating to B.C. Children’s Hospital.
