– 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.
