Obituary Notices and Memorials


BACHMAN, Olga T. Olga was peacefully promoted to Glory on the afternoon of Friday Nov. 12, 2010, and at her bedside were her two daughters, a granddaughter, two great-granddaughters and her son-in-law. She is survived by her sister Jenny Mele of New Jersey, brother Walter Jakobwski of Florida, her children Marianna Sylvies (Roy-Linden), Christopher Hoatson and Rhonda Hoatson, her grandchildren Brian Elliott Jr., Barrett Sylvies, Tonya Masino, Stephen Johnson, Brandon Biagas, Cyle, Courtney and Tina Hoatson, Samantha Dutra, Anthony and Lauren Cabral, and 9 great-grandchildren. She was preceded to glory by her parents, Alexander and Anna Johobowski, a son Stephen R. Riddle Jr., and her husband Wallace Bachman, who she referred to as 'her Saint'. Olga was born in New York, January 22, 1933, and moved to California in 1956. However, she has called Antelope Valley her home since 1961. Olgas main focus in this life was God, her family, frugality and helping others, especially those less fortunate than herself. Much of her volunteer work was with the Salvation Army, Lancaster Corps, where she was enrolled as a Senior Soldier in 1972. She was active with the Salvation Army in Sunday School, Church, Ladies Home League and a driver for those who had no transportation. A very independent, often hilarious and colorful woman, Olga continued to help others even while in a wheelchair. Visitation will be held from 4 to 6 p.m., Thursday, Nov. 18, 2010. Funeral Service will be held at 11 a.m., Friday, Nov. 19, 2010, at the Salvation Army Church and Community Center, 44517 N. Sierra Hwy, Lancaster, Calif. Graveside Service will follow at Lancaster District Cemetery. There she will be buried next to 'her Saint'. In lieu of flowers it is requested that donations to defer funeral costs be made to Rhonda Hoatson at Antelope Valley Bank Account #3010660586.
