 RAVENA – Olive C. Frese, 95, entered eternal life Sunday, January 20, 2019 at home surrounded by her loving family.  Born in Albany, she was the daughter of the late Bernard and Olive Kirby.  Her father called her Mickey at a young age and it stayed with her.  She was a member of the Ravena VFW Ladies Auxiliary, the Red Hat Society and a communicate of The Church of St. Patrick, Ravena.

     Mickey’s final wish was to assist in medical research, in her own way, by donating her “old Irish body” to the Anatomical Gift Program at Albany Medical College.  But because of the snow storm they could not take her.

     Mickey was the wife of the late Rudolph (Rudy) Frese; mother of Lucinda (Donald) McMullen, Thomas (Sandra) Frese, Donald (Stephanie) Frese, Christopher Frese and the late Melissa Frese; grandmother to Kersten and Adam McMullen, Jaylin, Tressa, Logan, Joshua, Luke and Seth Frese; great-grandmother to Tyler and Zachary McMullen; sister of Alice (Poonie) Kniffen and the late Nellie Butler and Bonnie Ruso.

     A Memorial Mass will be celebrated 1 PM on Saturday, February 2, 2019 at The Church of St. Patrick.  The family would like you to consider a donation in memory of Mickey to The Church of St. Patrick, 21 Main St., Ravena, NY 12143.
