Olive Jasmine Raven Azak was born on November 25, 1987, in Terrace, BC, and passed away on November 17, 2023, in Kamloops, BC.

Olive is predeceased by her father, Elmer; sister, Falon; and uncle, JB. She is survived by her mother, Fern; brother, Isaiah; grandmother, Heather; uncle, Corey; nieces, Khyna and Hope; and nephews, James and Drake.

What made Olive memorable was her love. Her love was always ‘complete’, and she was passionate about expressing it. Olive loved without barriers—no one felt “left out,” no one felt “alone.” Indeed, if this eulogy ended right here, everyone would agree, ‘Yes, that’s the Olive I knew and loved.’

Olive always loved spending time with friends and family. Be it good times or bad, Olive wanted to be there. She loved giving and receiving big hugs and laughing with everyone. She’ll be remembered for her full, signature laugh and smile.

I believe Olive saw everyone as the same, “we are one.” Maybe this is why she expressed concern for the injustices and suffering she saw for those who didn’t “fit the mold”—like the homeless, as well as others rejected by society. And why she referred to friends as family, calling friends mother, sister, brother, etc. We could all benefit from loving the way Olive did.

If Olive witnessed an injustice, she spoke out about it. And where she could, she did something about it—one of her favorite things was distributing her grandma’s homemade food to the homeless. Love through action.


Olive’s childhood memories were of being involved in church and of the extended family we came to love. She would tell me that even though she couldn’t sit still in church, she was still listening. Olive loved the Lord Jesus, and it was evident in the love she had for so many.

One of her favorite things to do was to play music for us, some new and some old, for Mom and me. She cared about our individual likes so much that she would make song picks just to make us happy. We will miss this.

Memory from Uncle Corey: “What I loved about Olive was how excited she always was to see me—which is the way she was with everyone. And how easily I could make her laugh—I’ll miss her laugh and smile.”

There will be a viewing for Olive Saturday, December 2 at 12:30pm in the Kamloops Funeral Home. A Funeral Service will follow in the Kamloops Funeral Home Chapel, Saturday, December 2 at 2:00pm.
