Olga Boyce was born in Parris Village, St. Joseph. She was a pupil of St. Joseph’s Girls’ School.
Like many girls in her era, Olga worked as a domestic in private homes across Barbados until she retired.
Ms. Boyce was never married but had two children, both deceased.
Olga had a strong faith in God and was a long-standing worshipper at St. Barnabas Anglican Church and sang in the choir. She was also a member of the Mothers’ Union.
Now warded at the St. Michael Geriatric Hospital, Olga still has a sharp wit which erupts peals of laughter from her friends and relatives who visit her.
Niece Goldine Herbert described her aunt as “a very sweet person and a joy to be around”.
She has several grand-children, great-grandchildren and great-great-grandchildren.
