Ollie was my paternal grandmother's sister. She was born in 1924 in Swainsboro, GA. She married Joe Funston, from Philadelphia. He was in the army and traveled a great deal - taking Ollie with him. But she didn't just travel with him, she also worked - also something that the women in my family didn't do much (outside of the mill workers).
In April of 1952, Ollie graduated from the San Diego Vocational School, certified in Aircraft Construction and Assembly. From August '52 to September '54, Ollie worked for Convair as a riveter. Our family's very own Rosie the Riveter!
