1950 – 1990
Olivia Dirtion, a vibrant and dedicated member of her home church, left an indelible mark through her unwavering service. She was a force within the congregation, actively engaged as a member of the Nurses Board, Vice President of the Youth for Christ, Editor of the church newspaper, a Sunday school teacher, and a compassionate member of both the Sick Committee and Kitchen Assistance team. Olivia’s devotion to Christ was the cornerstone of her life, and she carried this devotion into her role as a loving mother to her six children. She was a radiant light, illuminating every corner she graced with her presence.
In her honor, we have established the Olivia Award—a symbol of women supporting women and celebrating their remarkable achievements. Each year, we invite women from our families and communities to nominate extraordinary individuals. Starting in March 2024, nominations can be submitted, accompanied by a brief paragraph explaining why the nominee deserves this recognition. The chosen recipient will be awarded a $200 gift card.
To be eligible for the Olivia Award, the nominator must provide a detailed paragraph highlighting the nominee’s significant contributions to bettering society as a whole. We seek qualities such as an unwavering commitment to service and community involvement, a woman of virtue, dignity, and an outstanding reputation. The nominees will also be informed of their nomination via email, fostering a spirit of appreciation and acknowledgment within our community.”
