Olive Jane Flick, 96, of Applewold, passed away on Friday, October 5, 2018 at VNA Hospice in Butler. Jane was born April 1, 1922 in Karns City, Pa. She was the daughter of the late Harry Blaine and Bertha Idella (McElravy) Wagner. She was married to Leroy C. Flick, who passed in 1986. She ran the family grocery store in South McGrann for many years. After closing the store, she did day work and child care for Kohl, Karp, and Butler families in Kittanning. She took care of the babies in the nursery at Kittanning First United Methodist Church for 45 years. She retired from the Housekeeping Department at Armstrong County Memorial Hospital at 67.
Jane had an infectious smile with beautiful blue eyes that sparkled when she smiled. She was a strong and determined woman who loved beyond all faults and was loved by all who knew her. She learned to drive a car at age 49 and loved her first car, a blue VW Bug. After retirement, she enjoyed taking her sisters and sisters-in-laws out for lunch and shopping. Jane’s most cherished time was spent with her family. She loved holidays and family dinners and picnics with her family.
