Olga Lillian (Pedri) Groutage

Olga Lillian (Pedri) Groutage passed away July 15, 2018, in Lakewood Colo. Olga was born in Rock Springs Feb. 22. 1923, to Attilio Henry and Carmella Inez Pedri.

After Olga graduated from high school, she worked as a payroll clerk for the mines in Rock Springs.

She remained at home with her parents and helped them to raise her baby brother, Wayne John Pedri, for a few years until she became married. Olga Lillian Pedri married Clarence Louis Groutage Feb. 19, 1959.  

She became a homemaker after marrying Louis. She loved to cook and take care of Louis and their home. They had no children. She always enjoyed having company come to visit, especially when it was a visit from her sister Florence, brother-in-law Joe, and her niece Bernadine. She also enjoyed taking care of her niece Traci as she was growing up and spending time with her brother, Wayne.

Olga's health began to decline in 2015 when she required 24/7 caregiving in her home. She moved to Lakewood Colorado in November of 2017 to an assisted living facility where she received care until passing. Olga was preceded in death by her parents, brother Wayne, sister Florence Ruby Motto, and her husband Louis.

She is survived by her two nieces, Bernadine Anderson of Lakewood, Colo., and Traci Whitmer of Lucas, Texas and their husbands, Sven Anderson and Daniel Whitmer. She is also survived by her cousins Ellen Flaim and Shirley Parker.
