Olha, Kornelia (Nellie)
(nee Beniak)
Peacefully on Monday, September 18, 2017 at the age of 91 years old. Nellie was the loving wife of the late Vincent Olha and the beloved mother of: Allen (Anne Moore), Grace (Stephen Onions) and Carolynn. She was devoted to her grandchildren: Cas, Ryan, Sean, Ellen, Christopher, Stephanie, Nikolas and Eva and was blessed with great-grandchildren: Calvin and Penelope. Nellie was born in Czechoslovakia and immigrated to Canada after the war. She met Vincent in Montreal and together they started their family. Nellie was a kind and gentle person who loved caring for her family. She valued education, appreciated the arts and enjoyed a good conversation. She was a true lady and we were lucky to have her.
