Elizabeth "Libby" May Oliver was born Lizabeth Krausus on February 9, 1922 in Browndale, Pennsylvania. When she was 9, both of her parents were killed in a fire. She and her sister were adopted by Bill and Meta Campbell of Carbondale, Pennsylvania where she graduated High School and on August 30, 1941 she married Jack W. Olver. They had two sons, Raymond (4/2/1942 - 3/6/2019) and John (12/8/1946-). Libby was a working mother and became the office manager for a Johnson and Johnson Division President. She was always charming with a quick, humorous wit and was much beloved by her family, friends, and neighbors. After retirement she and Jack moved to Sunrise Bluffs, New Mexico in 2000 to be near Raymond and his family. Libby and Jack had many friends in the community and enjoyed a lively social life. After Jack's death in 2013, Libby continued to enjoy the friendship and company of her neighbors until shortly after her 100th birthday when she moved to the Beehive Home to receive hospice care and live out her final days. Libby was not left alone as her many friends and family members kept a steady stream of visitors. Libby was alert and sharp till the end of her life on April 24, 2022. She is survived by her son John; her daughter-in-law, Tama; her daughter-in-law Miriam; her granddaughters, Michelle and Lisa; and her great-grandchildren, Franklin, Sarah, Nathan, and Rosie. All those who knew her knew she was a joy to be with. Elizabeth will be laid to rest with her late husband at the Santa Fe National Cemetery at a later date.
