Her deep faith carried her through these difficult recent months and she was well cared for by the wonderful staff at the St. Croix Health Center. Peg is preceded in death by her loving husband, Oscar “Ocie” Olien; daughter, Joyce Olien; parents, Michael and Rosetta Clark; brother, Jack Clark; and aunt, Alice Monahan who raised her after her mother died when Peg was an infant. She is survived by her children, Linda (Gary) Emery, John Olien, Tom (Gretchen) Olien, Bruce (Helen) Olien; many grandchildren and great-grandchildren; and sister-in-law, Martha Smith.
