  4. Olive brought sparkle to my life! Her wonderful smile and the unique pitch of her voice began to work their magic for me in 1947, when I was just three years old.

    I loved to spend time at Grandma & Grandpa Setchell’s house in Bedford, just a few doors away from ours. They always had interesting visitors, mostly old and serious. This time, Olive swept into the dining room, laughing and full of fun, putting everyone at ease.

    That is how Mary & I shall remember a lady who loved life, her family and cared.

  6. Grandma,
    Thank you for so many happy memories; around the table at Mum’s, at your house in Chandler’s Ford and before that in Maidenhead. You were always smiling and thinking of us, even in your later years you always asked how my exams and work were going.
    Thanks to you and Grandpa for raising such a wonderful, caring family.

  14. Dear Olive, you have been a constant and very treasured friend of my parents Elsie and Frank Wood ever since you first met in Brazil so many years ago, and have been part of our ‘extended’ family as far back as I can remember, with special memories during all the Shell years in Brazil and the Far East, and later through correspondence and visits across the Atlantic after we moved to Canada. You have also been a dear friend to me since I came to England, and I’ve enjoyed our get-togethers reminiscing and hearing the news of your ever-increasing family who all meant so much to you. I’ll always remember your generosity, your interest in life, your beautiful blue eyes and sweet smile.
    With love, Catherine

  15. Olive was a lovely and kind lady with a generous and loving heart. She was especially important to me in my teenage years when I came to visit my friend Jennifer and join in family life. Olive always made me feel welcome, at home and safe. She lived a long, giving and good life and was blessed to have all her family nearby, which must have been a huge comfort to her in her final years as her family were her world. Olive left a loving imprint on this world and there’s not much more any of us could do than that. Much love to all the family,

    Annette Booth (Wilson)
