Olga is predeceased by her mother (Tekla) and father (Mykola) Bilicz, sister (Irka), brother (Ostap), husband (Mychajlo) and son (Bohdan). Olga is survived by her sister (Olena). Mourning her passing are her grand-daughters – Natassia (Dillon) and Emma (Stefan), daughter-in-law, nieces and nephews. The family would like to extend special thanks to the staff at Actionmarguerite (Taché Centre) for their care for Olga over the last number of years.
