OLDS, Victoria Anne Ph.D.

June 19, 1958 – August 28, 2021

Dr. Vic (Vicki) was raised in Thistletown, daughter of Grace and Donovan Olds.  She enjoyed summers during her teens as a camper and staff at Camp Artaban in Bolton.  She earned her Ph.D. in Management Sciences at University of Waterloo and later worked for several decades teaching Math at University of Western Ontario where she was employed at the time of her death. 

Vicki enjoyed singing bass with London Pro Musica Choir and playing bassoon with the New Horizons Band in London.  She attended Lake Field Music Adult Music Camp for many years until it was shut down by COVID-19.

Vicki is survived by her mother (Grace) and her seven siblings—Mary (Les Wheatcroft), David (Sharon Lovett), Kevin (Patsy Chalmers), Lise, Rachel (Kevin Steffler), Melinda (Darryl Moore), and Tom (Nadya Labi).  She will be sorely missed by them all and their children and grandchildren.
