Palmer, Olaug Ollie 1924 - 2018 Ollie passed away peacefully on February 18, 2018. Born in Norway in 1924, Ollie came to Canada as a child with her parents Rakel and Rasmus Hobberstad along with brother Hans and sister Olivia (Wiest). Youngest sister Sylvia (Rombough) was born in Canada. After growing up on the farm near Circle Hill, Ollie ventured to Lethbridge to work and there met the love of her life, Bill (William) Palmer. They married on June 7, 1947 and enjoyed 61 years of love and happiness until Bill passed away in 2008.
