Mrs Olcott was an amazing woman… I remember when I was young and came to her house she was so sweet to us and so calm and had goodies all the time! Then one time Patty spoke back to Mrs Olcott and she yelled Pattys name so loud…She was so loud it was funny ( not scary)..I started laughing and she stopped and looked at me and then started laughing too!! I will always cherish the memories with her and her wonder family gatherings! At Christmas their house had every Christmas item in the world and all most precious moment figurines I had ever seen!! We will miss our Mrs.Olcott!!! Xoxoxo❤️❤️❤️

Margret had a heart full of love for others because Jesus filled her heart. She loved her family and church family, dearly! She loved serving Jesus through her many acts of kindness: making delicious food for those who needed it, words of encouragement, and hugs! I enjoyed working with her at church and her friendship. We will see her soon when Jesus comes! Condolences and comfort to her family! She loved all of you with every fiber of her being!- A legacy of love!

Oh, how we enjoyed seeing Marge at church! She was so kind and what a lovely smile. When she talked with you, she really listened to you and the caring she had for you was evident. She exuded that quietly firm "peace of God, that passeth all understanding". A few years ago, KCCSDA had a Breakfast Club. Marge Olcott was one of our first, and undeniably our most regular visitor. She would chat with all who came and she gave the whole atmosphere more of a homey feel. And she always thanked us for a wonderful breakfast lol. As her health began to wane and her visits to church grew less frequent, we missed her sorely. A visit to see her in hospital was as much a treat for us as it was for her, she blessed us so. No person is a saint for sure. But Marge made passing this way a bit nicer for us. And isn't that what each of us should do for one another? Thanks Marge and thank you Jesus for lending her to us.

We will so miss our dear friend! The thing I regretted most about leaving the KC area was leaving our dear friends. Margaret and I served so many years together being deaconesses at our local Seventh Day Adventist church. Many Sabbath afternoons were spent together taking food to the shut-ins, making hospital visits & praying for our church family. So many good memories of special time spent together. Margaret worked with our youth as well. She was one of the Pathfinder Leaders and was one brave soul leading out with children. Margaret was often times out-spoken but did not hesitate to stand for her beliefs. You had to love her honesty and overall concern for others. Margaret not only loved her church family but also loved her own family. She was a devoted mother and prayed for her children faithfully. She longed to see all of them in God's kingdom some day. She will be missed by all who had the privilege of knowing her!

Do you know how much we loved your mother. You must know we did and always will. She was a wonderful caring empathetic person and we will miss her deeply. She always had a smile on her face when she came in our office we’ve known her for so long she feels like family to us just says your family feels like family to us. With Mike and Patty ( better known to Hannah as Pappi ) taking care of our daughter Hannah, just like she was one their own children, they were and are a huge part of her upbringing. We know Margaret is now out of pain and now reunited with her beloved husband Frank and of course Karen who we will also miss. Know that you all are in our thoughts and prayers. We know what a long situation you all have been going through ever since Karen passed. We love every one of you! 🙏❤️❤️❤️

Margaret has been surrounded by a family that deeply loved their mother and been a blessing for their care for her. Truly she was a wonderful mother, because you can see the that in the way her children cared for her. Each one of you are in our thoughts and prayers. Margaret will be truly missed by many, because of her love for people. Many adults today remember Margaret from their childhood and the influence that she had on their lives. It was apparent that Margaret loved people, especially young people. Until we all meet again when Jesus comes.
