GREETINGS AND SALUTATIONS!
(For those that knew Olive, she often burst into a room with this expression.)
Olive passed away peacefully at home on August 15, 2023, at the age of 80.
Loving mother of Christopher Allen and Amanda Batek and cherished grandmother of Andrew and Alex. Born in Whitewood, Saskatchewan to James and Tunie Topinka, and sister to Jan, Keith, and Ron Topinka.
Olive worked diligently as a pharmacist and finished her career at Peel Memorial Hospital. Always strong until the end, she loved telling stories and spending time with friends and family. She was a true trailblazer starting from rural Canada, being married in Jamaica, raising children in British Columbia, living in North Africa and England, and finally settling in Brampton.
She loved her garden and spent countless hours tending to her flowers and pond.
After retiring from pharmacy she continued to volunteer at local hospitals showing her true selfless and caring nature.
Cremation has taken place.
For those who wish, donations may be made to the Canadian Cancer Society.
