Services will be at 1:00 p.m., Saturday, January 22, 2022, at Hudman Funeral Home, 615 Main St., Post, TX.
Olga was born in San Antonio, TX on June 7, 1932, to Olivia and Joe Tijerina.
Olga was a devoted Catholic, always involved in the church. She loved helping with the church however she could. One of her favorite hobbies while she was in Odessa, TX was getting to help make rosaries.
Olga was a spunky little lady, hard-working, simple, and loving woman.
While in Amarillo she worked at Northwest Texas Hospital as a housekeeper, which she loved. She also worked at Homeland after retiring from Northwest Texas Hospital. Olga would say how her customers would tip her good for carrying out their groceries. She loved staying active and never met a stranger.
Olga’s pastime had anything to do with the church, bingo, and spending time with her family and grandchildren.
She will be missed by many, forever in our hearts.
