Interment: Santa Clara Mission Cemetery, Santa Clara, CA.

Our beloved wife, mother, Nana, sister, and friend passed away peacefully at home, lovingly surrounded by her family on January 31, 2017.

Olivia was born and raised in Phoenix, Arizona, graduated from high school in Salem, Oregon, and moved to Santa Clara in 1962. Olivia's life was full of adventure and family. She was an avid world traveler, accompanying her husband on many of his business trips. She was a constant presence at her children's schools, always volunteering in some capacity. She returned to work once her children were older – first as an interior designer, then the manager of the family's Mexican restaurant, and finally as a real estate agent.

She was devout in her Catholic faith and loved being active in her Tuesday morning prayer group for almost 30 years. She thrived at helping others and giving selflessly of her time. Her greatest happiness was spending time with her family and especially her grandchildren. She could always be found at school or sporting events, cheering from the sidelines, or just spending time together. She bravely battled pancreatic cancer for over a year and a half. Her strength was incredible during the last part of her journey on earth, and in the end, she did as she always told others – she left it in God's hands.

To know Olivia was to love her for her devotion to God, family and friends and for her kind heart and gentle nature. She will remain a living presence much more than a memory to all those whose lives she touched. Whether you met her once or had the privilege of knowing her for a long time, she made an impression on your heart.

She is survived by her husband of 49 ½ years, Robert Gray; daughters, Lisa Fuqua (Peter), Tanya Reinhardt (Erich); and son, Roger Gray; her sister, Bea Hernandez; her brother, Mike Martinez (Marlett); half sisters, Norma Boltz (David), Sonia Coker (Richard); and half brother, Roy Martinez (Sonia); and most especially by the lights of her life – her 9 grandchildren: Olivia, Julia, Maria, Ella, Joseph and James Fuqua, Jakob and Xavier Reinhardt, and Maggie Gray; also by numerous nieces and nephews.

Olivia's Rosary and Funeral Mass will be held at St. Mary of the Immaculate Conception, 219 Bean Street, Los Gatos on Thursday, February 9, 2017 with a viewing at 11am followed by a Rosary and Mass at 12pm. Internment will follow at Santa Clara Mission Cemetery.

In lieu of flowers, you may make a donation in Olivia's name to St. Mary's Catholic Church.

In 2014, he and his family moved to San Jose, CA to be closer to his extended family and his son, who moved to California in 2008.

Mr. Lee was a soft-spoken and extremely kind-hearted man. Although money was tight, he worked tirelessly and devoted much of his life to raising three children and enabled them to attend college. When he found spare time, he enjoyed photography, reading about stocks, and followed Detroit sports.
