Olga Fava Dean, age 92, formerly of Oakfield passed away peacefully at The Villages of Orleans Health & Rehab Center in Albion joining her granddaughter, Marcy Mruczek in Heaven.
Born November 10, 1927 in Batavia, Olga was a daughter of the late Guglielmo and Antonietta (Minello) Fava. She raised a family of seven children. Olga worked for many years at Fisher-Price Toys in Medina, where she made many close friends. Olga was a parishioner of the former Sacred Heart of Jesus R.C. Church in Medina. She enjoyed playing Bingo and was a constant prize winner. An amazing cook, Olga will be remembered for her amazing lasagna and tasty fruit pies. Her sweet smile, jokes and maternal love will be affectionately remembered by her loved ones. A biography could not possibly tell all of her tales and travel trips that she so enjoyed.
