She worked for Real for many years as a cook. She was well known for her delicious Fruit Cake, Pan De Polvo, cakes, cookies, and tamales, and let us not forget our favorite – homemade meals with homemade tortillas. One of Olivia’s favorite things – their annual tradition of going camping at Gardner State Park, especially since this was her rest time from housework, ironing, cooking and cleaning.
