She was a loving mother, who was a wonderful role model. She was also a very caring and skilled elementary school teacher, and a supportive wife. She was a strict but caring teacher, with a dramatic flair that served her well in the classroom. She enjoyed learning, reading, nature, gardening and bird watching. In her younger years, she rode horses, did downhill skiing, and was an accomplished swimmer and diver. Most of all she loved spending time with her grandsons and family. She was raised by Hungarian immigrants, who worked hard to build a good and stable life for their eight children. Her mother, Amelia Kiraly, was married to a Mr. Kulscar, had 5 sons, and was widowed. Her sons with him were Charles (Chuck), Louis, Adolph, and David. There was one son who died very young, name unknown to me. Charles had moved to California, and had one daughter, they are both deceased now. Louis was a great uncle and brother, took care of his widowed mother, never married, and is now deceased. Adolph had a daughter and a son, he and his wife Helen are now deceased. David was married to Mildred for many years, divorced and remarried, and never had any children.
She married Zigmond Pinkoczy, and had three daughters. Olga was the youngest of the children. They were raised with the ethnic Hungarian cooking, and Grandma Amelia was an amazing cook, with stuffed cabbage, chicken paprikas, etc. Olga and her sisters did the Hungarian ethnic dances with costumes as girls, and all eight children learned the Hungarian language first in the home, and English second. One sister, Grace, went on to marry a Hungarian Reformed Minister, after studying piano at Julliard in New York City. The parents set high standards for their children, and they all, (as well as their children, eventually) turned out to be hard working, caring and contributing members of society. Sadly Olga died as a result of an accident caused by a habitual drunk driver. Her only two grandchildren (both boys) were babies at the time. She died instantly, and her husband Bruce survived, after being in a coma for 2 months, and lived for another 12 years.
