Olga "Ollie" Kitts, 85, of Lacon died at 10:30pm July 18 2014 at St. Joseph's Nursing Home in Lacon
Born February 26, 1929 to the late Frank and Josephine Zupan Uranich in Ogelsby IL, she married Dale Kitts on August 24 1957 in Peru IL. He passed on October 23, 2004.
Ollie was like a good will ambassador for Marshall County, knowing no strangers. You never left Ollie's house hungry. She was most comfortable in the kitchen surrounded by her children and grandchildren. One of her most cherished moments was making an instructional video with her family on how to make the Slovenian pastry potica so future generations could carry on the tradition. Heaven just gained a helper to snap beans and can tomato juice. A farmer's wife's work is never finished.
Ollie is survived by her children; Christine (Bruce) Ulmer of Stanley NY, David (Jill) Kitts of Lacon, Lynnette (Doug) Nevitt of Lacon, and Lori (Dave) Schaidle of Goodfield; her Brother Frank (Nancy) Uranich of Peru; sister Josephine (Ed) Pastor of Rockford; and her grandchildren Terra Nevitt, Abbey (Nicholas) Dudley, Kyle Duryea, Jenna & Jason Kitts, and Matt & Josh Schaidle. She is also survived by her best friend for 82 years, Henrietta Wallock. Ollie was also preceded by her sister Frances Kasperski. She was a member of Calvary Bible Church in Lacon.
