You will be dearly missed Aunt Ollie! I am so happy that Dana and I had the chance to visit you last year. I have so many fond memories of you and the "the gang" to include my mom, Barb, and uncle Don. I loved hearing some of the stories you shared about your teenage and early adult years. You all had so much fun together. I am at peace knowing that you will be with them again. Dance like no one's watching! Love ya! Lori

Mom you raised me as a signal mom for years. Sorrounded me with love and good male role model in uncle Art, uncle John, Dad Dowen "as I was the redheded triplet with the Twins Dennis and Duane" and finally a Dad in Donald Wescott who couldn't of done more for me. I was always safe and warm unlesss I got myself into mystif like most red blooded American boys. Between building tree forts and jumping bikes over ramps with the Roger, Grant , Dave & John in the Trailer Park to riding bikes all over to village of Ballston Spa with Dennis and Duane along with time with my cousins being a kid running and playing at Uncle John's & Aunt Dolly's with Hank, Don, Darlene, Terry, Dolly Ann, Belinda, Missy, or aunt Diane's Eddie, Stephen, Todd, Bryant, Scott, Sandy, Diana and Sherry. Not to forget all the Arts and craft time at Aunt Edna's with May Ann and Benny. Art and John were much older but were around if needed. I could go on and on Aunt Barb's were I learned of rock music Kiss Detroit Rock City, STYX grand illusion and swimming at the pump house with Jimmy, DJ, Lori, Dana, Terra.
The point is I was always safe but allowed to find my way my wife, my children and grandchildren can thank you along with me for helping make be the man Iam. You molded me to be strong and independent and told me repeatedly along the way you loved me and were proud of me. This doesn't mean I was perfect and had no struggles along the way because I did. I'm so practical and interverted social at times I have to work at not coming acrossed as judgmental as others find me hard to read at times. However I have tried to understand everyone has a story to tell and we all have are struggles. No one man or woman is greater then the other. I'm honored to have had you as a Mother and the People above along with others not listed in my life. Ohh no I forgot Harold, Beverly, Tony, Tracy and Judy Dowen you see it was us Triplets weekly mission to sneak upstairs and choose chaos or simply run the roost downstairs as we were the babies and they were out numbered because Dad Dowen and my other Mother Mom Dowen always protected the babies unless they were the ones grounding or swatting us.
So I got long winded And I'm just hitting the good stuff Mom and Dad W get together and suddenly my little sister Erica and I start sharing the house the our siblings Donnie, Rhonda, Carl

Aunt Ollie you sure will be missed .. You have always been a fighter and I know you fought the best fight.. Your not only my aunt but my godmother.. You weren't afraid to give your opinion something this family expected of you ! So now the party continues as you met Uncle Donald, Aunt Barbara and Your brother Rookie in the sky. Boy what a party that it must have been.. All you spit fires together again.. Show them how it's done up there.. We will certainly keep your memory alive.. I hope heaven knows they gained one hell of an angel

Ollie was an angel to all that got to know her. She was caring to all of her neighbors. Everyone loved Ollie she would give you her shirt off her back if she had too. She is being already missed. She was a friend to all and never bothered anyone. She was a wonderful person to be around many times she would play cards with some of her closest friends. Fly high Miss Ollie high as the highest cloud you can find so you can be looking down on your many friends here on earth. You are now at peace where you belong no more suffering.

GOD TOOK YOU AWAY FROM US BUT I SUPPOSE HE KNOWS IT WAS YOUR TIME. YOU WILL ALWAYS BE IN OUR HEARTS OLLIE WE WILL NEVER FORGET YOU

I'm so sorry for your loss. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.

Vickie Walsh

Our dear "Ollie", you will indeed live on in our memories, preserved and cherished until we can gather together and have the pleasure of hearing your laughter again. I always thought that I was blessed to resemble you. I admired your spunk, being so full of life, and a family gathering wasn't the same if your laugh wasn't part of the memories we were creating. Hug mom, Johnny, our precious uncles and have fun catching up with your mom. Until we all meet again, enjoy dancing with your Aunt Hazel. You are loved.

Jamie DiPasquale
