Note

Ollie was a sweet person who everyone liked and who didn't talk about others and kept her grandchildren a lot. She didn't have a combative personality like her daughter Katherine.

She gave a lot of attention to her grandchild, Puddin, who she helped raise. She allowed Pudding to sleep with her, so that her husband Charles no longer slept with his wife. This caused jealousy between Puddin and Ollie's daughter Katherine, who used to beat up Puddin.
