Olga Marie Batista, 89, of Scottsville, passed away peacefully on Tuesday, May 10, 2022, in Staunton, Virginia.
She was born on October 29, 1932, to the late Ramon Batista and Maria Teresa Balbontin in Tampa, Florida and raised by her foster parents, Luther S. and Alice T. Baber in Scottsville, Virginia.
In addition to her parents and her foster parents, preceding her in death are her two brothers, Ramon Batista, Jr. and Alberto Batista, along with a sister, Orchid Batista Juncal.
Olga was a sweet and caring soul and anyone that encountered her, knew that instantly. She would care for and help anyone in any way that she could and with a smile on her face while doing it. She enjoyed baking and sharing her yummy treats with her community and crocheting in her free time. She loved flowers and watching them bloom. Miss Olga will be missed by all that knew her and because of her kindness, she will be with the Lord, as a special angel.
Survivors include a sister, Carmen Batista Sainz of Florida; a sister in-law, Laura Batista; several nieces and nephews; a special friend, Gail Huskey of Scottsville; along with a host of close friends whom she loved dearly.
