Olive Rickey (Chevrier) Champagne, 81 years of age, of Burns Lake B.C. went home on her birthday, Wednesday, April 1, 2015. She was born to the late Edward and Wilma Chevrier, of Ontario.
Olive is survived by 7 children; Jeannette (Stuart) Froese, Susanne (Chris) Harris, Ronald (Cathy) Bourcier, Rene (Cheryl) Bourcier, Darlene (Mike) McIntyre, Sylvia (David) King, Leona Bourcier, Amy, Armand (A.J.), Arynne Froese, and 12 other grandchildren, along with 9 great grandchildren.
Although Olive passed away from cancer, she fought to her very last breath. When she passed away she was surrounded by her loving family, Stuart, Jeannette, Armand, Amy, Arynne, and A.J. with thoughts and prayers.
Olive, mom, was very active in the community. She was very proud to volunteer in the Royal Canadian Legion in both Fraser Lake and Burns Lake, as well as the local Thrift Store, COPS, and as a hobby, she loved her puzzles. The one thing that mom loved to do was make others laugh.
