The most giving, caring, sharing, patient, kind, and loving person we've ever known our loving Mother, Sister, Auntie, Grandmother, Great Grandmother, Cousin, and friend Ollie Mae McBride. She always knew how to calm our minds, body, spirit, and soul. Whenever we needed her she was always there to listen to give us peace, knowledge, and understanding in the most polite way, letting us know that everything was going to be all right. She was introduced to Christ at an early age and received the Lord Jesus Christ and was baptized at Mount Tabor Missionary Baptist Church in Los Angeles, California. She was a long-time and beloved member of Zoe Christian Fellowship of Los Angeles. She loved the Lord and attended service regularly. She faithfully supported her church family and her daughter Lisa's dance ministry.
Ollie graduated from T. J. High School in Sandersville, Georgia. Thereafter she married her beloved husband Willie J. McBride, he requested that she be a stay-at-home mom to care for and help raise their three beautiful daughters Linda, Carol, and Lisa. Early in her career, she was employed at two major hospitals LAC+USC Medical Center as a Dietician and West Healthcare as an In-home Support Service Worker. She was the kindest person you could ever meet, she knew no strangers. Ollie continued her education and graduated from American Pacific College with a degree in Computerized Office Administration. She eventually retired to care for her beloved husband. She was the best cook, always eager to fix a plate. Her smile could light up a room and her love could heal a broken heart you could always count on her to be her awesome self. Spending time with her family was her favorite pastime seeing them often brightened her days like the sun. Traveling to visit other states to see her family and traveling and cruising to exotic places with her daughters gave her overwhelming joy. OLLIE is the"QUEEN OF OUR HEARTS". She leaves these precious memories in the mind and hearts of her family.
She is survived by her daughter Carol, her brothers, granddaughters, great- grandchildren, nieces, and nephews.
