Margarita “Margie” Olivas 78, retired teacher’s aide at Hart Street Elementary passed away April 8th, 2020. She leaves behind six children, fourteen grandchildren, fifteen great-grandchildren, one great-great grandchild. Due to the current circumstances, there won’t be a service, but well-wishers are encouraged to post a picture, fond memory, or write a note of farewell and enjoy a margarita in her honor. A celebration of life will be scheduled for a later date. Margie was known for her lack of patience, colorful language, and volunteering her opinion. She always told you the truth even if it wasn’t how or what you wanted to hear. Despite this, she was an extremely protective lioness when it came to her family and took deep pride in her grandchildren. She also cared deeply for the many children she taught over the years. Margie loved her novelas, parades, popcorn & movies, making cupcakes and salsa to give away, socializing and mailing holiday cards to the kids. She will be incredibly missed by all who knew her. We were blessed to learn so much from Margie among them; never show up empty-handed, always “yes” never “yeah”, always say “please” and “thank you”, and never, ever give up – quitting isn’t an option. Instead of flowers, we ask that you perform an act of kindness for someone in need.
