Obituary

Olga Walker, of Philadelphia, passed away peacefully on Wednesday, July 17, 2019 at the age of 92. She was the beloved wife of the late Simon Walker; cherished mother of Dennis Francis Walker (Jean), Robert Patrick Walker, Anthony Joseph Walker (Denise), Michael John Walker, and Carolann Walker; caring grandmom of Kathryn Ann, Steven (Amy), Jonathan (Jill), Jean Marie (Andy), Christopher (Jill), Maryann, and Kevin (Rachael); loving great grandmom of Benson, Taylor, and Eleanor; and loving sister of the late Michael Diatchenko and the late Mary Pessiki .

Olga was born to two hard working parents who came to this country to make a better life for their future family. She quit school in 10th grade to start working and help out the family, and never stopped since! She had many jobs over the years...she packed cookies for Nabisco, made chocolates for Whitman's, made umbrella's, being a meat wrapper was her last. She never missed a day of work. She put pride in everything she did, but she was most proud of her family! She just enjoyed the simple things in life if it involved being with the family. She lived a long and happy life and I am sure is happy to be reunited once again with her husband of 51 years. If we listen hard enough, we can hear her yelling...BINGO!!!! I know she has that lucky card at last!
