A reception will be held following the service at 2:30 p.m. at Harbor Oaks Place, 30 Turner Street, Clearwater.
Olga was born on November 8, 1923 in Manhattan, New York to Hugo and Vincenza Cioli. She was the oldest of 10 children; Adeline, Gloria, Josephine, Joey, Tootsie, Louie, Jeannie, Mickey and Sonny and a mother of two; Robert Grasso of Clearwater, FL and Joseph Grasso of Tulsa, OK. Married to the love of her life, she met Joseph during WWII and spent 62 years married to him before his passing in 2008. She also had three grandchildren; Jennifer and Anthony Grasso of Clearwater, FL and Michael Grasso of Tulsa, OK, and two great grandchildren; Dannah (14) and Jackson (8), who both reside in Clearwater.
Olga led a wonderful life. She helped to care for her nine siblings, worked at Clay Adams Hospital in New York and performed with the USO during the war. After marrying Joseph and moving to Clearwater Beach, Florida, she became the co-owner and partner of the Surf n’ Sand Motel for nearly 50 years, which allowed her to also be a loving housewife and a caring mother and grandmother during those years. She will be talked about often and missed dearly.
She is survived by her son Robert, her three grandchildren Jennifer, Anthony and Michael, and her two great grandchildren, Dannah and Jackson.
