I am so sorry to hear about the loss of sweet Olga. She was such a kind soul. My family and I enjoyed celebrating 8 am mass with her. She would often walk by our pew, give my arm a squeeze, and give a hi five to our kids.  I enjoyed talking with her and having her smile and pay attention to our children. Her friendship is one I will treasure always.

I only had the blessing of knowing Olga for a short time, but it was a time when I needed a sweet smile and a story. And it always made me feel better or laugh. And it was Olga who accomplished that.whenever I saw her at Newport Meadows. She was such a wonderful and sweet soul. I send my condolences to her family and friends. She will be sadly missed by all that knew and loved her. Rest In Peace dear Olga.

I knew Olga only slightly but always enjoyed my time with her.  Her passing leaves a hole in the fabric of the community.

Olga was a very good friend to our family. Even after retirement she and my mother, another former educator in the Octorara District, spent time together, sharing their love of books, and she showed several instances of kindness once my mother moved to Ohio. Olga probably was responsible for me entering the field of library science, as I spent many hours helping in the high school library when I was a student at OHS. There were not many times that I ever saw her without a smile on her face. The world is a poorer place without her.

I am sadden to hear she has passed. When I was in high school she was someone I could count on to listen and care about me. I am grateful she was in my life during some difficult years.  She helped me to grow as a lover of literature and encouraged  me in my goal to be a teacher. I did have a chance to have lunch with her and thank her for her help.I wish that I had reached out to her more times. Her presence on this earth will be missed by all the people she touched with her kindness and love.

I will always love and remember this precious woman's sparkling eyes and sweet sweet smile. I loved working with her as a Student Library Aide at Octorara HS. She taught me so much about Library Science and a deep love for books. She was such a genuinely happy, kind and loving person. Heaven is a richer place with her presence. Love you Miss Link.

I got to know Olga first as a customer at my picture framing shop in Downingtown. When she discovered my shop dog, Ammo, (a dachshund) she became a frequent visitor to the store. I always looked forward to her visits, where we would talk about our love of horses and of course Dachshunds. She never came empty handed without a bag of dog treats for Ammo, who probably loved her visits even more than I did. She was such a lovely person and I will miss her letters in the mail with newspaper clippings of articles she thought I might enjoy. A kind soul that this world will miss greatly, I'm forever greatful for the time I got to spend with her.

Sorry for the loss of Ms. Link. She was a very good friend to my grandmother, Edie. Thought she was such a mean librarian until i knew her personally and realized and sweet and wonderful she was. We alsways joked about it. I just talked to much in library. Hope you and Grandmama can get back to your shenanigans. Much love
