Following Joe's service career, the family settled in Marshfield, Wisconsin until moving to Sheboygan in 1953. Joe and Olive resided on MacArthur Ave. for many years and most recently resided together at Sunny Ridge.

Olive was a tailor with Art Imig, Richmond Brothers and Kress Hertel. Olive was a member of Holy Name Parish and the St. Anne’s Women's Society. Olive enjoyed gardening and needlework, proudly presenting afghans to family members.

In addition to her husband, Joe, Olive is survived by two children, Linda Warmbier of Woodstock, Illinois and Kevin and Gloria Zinthefer of Sheboygan; five grandchildren, Jason Warmbier, Matthew (Katie) Warmbier, Zachariah Zinthefer, Vanessa Zinthefer, and Katrina (fiance Barry Buechner) Zinthefer; two great-grandchildren, Jared Warmbier and Caleb Warmbier, a sister, Rosalia Baumgart of Abbottsford, Wisconsin; and other family members.

A time of visitation and support will be held at Holy Name Catholic Church on Saturday from 10:00 A.M. until the time of service. A memorial fund has been established in her name.

Olive will always be remembered for her great sense of humor, a shoulder to lean on, and a strong heart which she shared with the one's she loved.
