Olivia was born in Arrifes, Sao Miguel, Portugal and immigrated to Canada with her family to make a better life. She settled in Toronto and raised her family. She was loved by all who met her, as she was kind, compassionate and had a great sense of humor; she made sure everyone was cherished and treated as if they were family. She was a devout catholic who was strong in her faith for God and the Holy mother. She was a long time parishioner of St. Mary’s Catholic Church and was loved by the community.
