Obituary of Olive L Kahle

Olive Louise Kahle, age 88, of Tylersburg, passed away at her home on Friday, December 27, 2019 surrounded by her family after a five-month illness. Born August 6, 1931, she was the daughter of the late Edwin B and Lillis L (Mills) Gilmore. Mrs. Kahle graduated from Clarion High School in 1949. She was a home-maker who spent many years caring for elderly & ill members of her family, as well as grandchildren. Olive found joy in gardening, making applesauce, and canning. She could make a peanut butter sandwich picnic on a log feel like a party. Her faith was paramount. She attended the Washington Chapel, where she was a pianist, and later, Good Shepherd Church. Her motto, "I just like to see what I can do with what I already have." In 1950, Olive married Robert E Kahle, who preceded her in death in 2003.
