Ollie Jo Slaven, 78 , Anderson went to be with her Lord on January 26 surrounded by her family after an extended illness. She was born May 27, 1940 in Maynardville Tennessee.

Ollie was a devoted and loving wife, mother, and Mamaw. Her caring heart touched many people in her lifetime. She loved working in the yard with her flowers and spending time with her family. She also warmed many hearts with her ability to cook great food. She loved caring for others. Fixing a meal or sitting with them when they were ill.

When she was well, she attended church at Charity Baptist Church in Newcastle. Ollie will be deeply missed by all of her family and friends.
