Olive C. Abel On March 13th at 3:45 pm Olive Catherine Abel went to be with her sweet Lord. Many will miss this wonderful and creative woman, who gave so graciously to all with her energy, her published writings, and her generous work with children, whom she taught to dance, sing, laugh and love. Little children loved Miss Olive as all who knew her did. She was a true inspiration, and her smile lit up the world. She worked actively with children as a volunteer, and in her vocation. She was born in London England on August 4th 1935. In her early years she worked and traveled Europe and Asia as a professional dancer. She deeply committed her life to Christ.
