Olive’s life was beset with tragedy. While on her second honeymoon in Paris she accidentally consumed bichloride of mercury which proved fatal.
He served several United Methodist churches in Western Washington as pastor, teaching Biblical Archaeology at Pacific Lutheran University and Garrett-Evangelical Theological Seminary. He leaves behind a daughter, son, two grandsons, and granddaughter-in-law.
Early Life and Education
Olive’s early life was marked by humor. One tale found Olive interrupting an otherwise monotonous day of running errands for her teacher-college to attend a baby shower (which Olive refers to as being “like a funeral for a baby”).
She became widely beloved during her lifetime, earning the moniker “Everybody’s Sweetheart”. She appeared in numerous films–many still existing today–but her marriage with Jack Pickford proved turbulent and she later died from swallowing mercury bichloride tablets.
Shawn Patterson and Laura Olive, his daughter-in-law Lori and granddaughter Molly are left to mourn his passing, along with Nora Scott, Wendy Olive and Christi; Murray Kennedy (and Phylis Kennedy as well as stepson Duke Maddox); as well as many nieces and nephews. A memorial service will take place later this year.
Olive lived an eventful and turbulent life, appearing frequently on screen to play positive characters, in contrast to her private life which was riddled with alcohol, drugs and infidelity; additionally she battled bipolar disorder.
Captain Olive was assigned to SH-60B Fleet Replacement Squadron during Operation Enduring Freedom as Air Boss, VBSS Officer and Senior Watch Officer. Additionally, he served on Commander Surface Forces staff as the Senior Aviator/Helicopter Placement Officer.
Summer golf was his passion at Oak Lake and surrounding courses, while in winter he would curl at Oak Lake or participate in bonspiels at local bonspiels – both hobbies were shared with family and friends.
Achievement and Honors
Olive is survived by his two daughters, Linda Sheehan and Joan Andersen; three grandchildren Anna, Sara and Will Sheehan; sister (Delma) Ann Metz; nieces, nephews and great-nieces/great-nephews as well as numerous great nieces/great nephews and great nephews/nieces. Unfortunately he was predeceased by his parents Delmar Landis and Mary Virginia Cropp as well as Dorothy Olive his longtime wife of 61 years before his passing.
Olive’s story illustrates Strout’s impressive ability to allow readers inside her characters’ minds. Bitter regret and searing loneliness collide against unexpected mercies and stubborn hope; Olive manages to find new love after suffering a heart attack thanks to Halima (a Somali refugee experiencing xenophobia) and Betty (a Trump supporter who gets on her nerves), two nurses’ aides she befriends from nurses’ aide staffing services; her wry humor remains as sharp as ever!
Olive caught Florenz Ziegfeld’s attention and became one of his Follies stars, in addition to being one of his top models and posing nude for artist Alberto Vargas.
Jack and Olive had returned from partying in Montparnasse that night, where she took medicine, such as aspirin, sleeping pills or cold medicine in order to relieve herself in the bathroom. Instead, she inhaled a bottle of mercury bichloride liquid that had either been mislabeled or was entirely unlabeled and died five days later.
Strout deftly explores the traumas associated with loneliness, class divide and snobbery through Olive’s tale. She may seem like an uncaring busybody at first glance but her kindness soon becomes clear when one of Olive’s guests goes into labor and she assists. Later she must apologize to them both for helping out during labor before admitting her own traumas are exposed in an apology exchange between herself and them.
