“Miss” Olga was not one to sit still. She was very athletic and loved all sorts of sports especially BHS Basketball and of course anything Carlton coached. She enjoyed riding her bicycle, camping, fishing, and bowling. In fact, she was still rolling strikes at 80 years old. “Miss” Olga kept her yards and house in order. She could bake most anything but was known for her tomato gravy & biscuits. She traveled to all fifty states leaving each one a little better than she found it. “Miss” Olga treasured her family and the memories they shared.
Survivors include her children, Karen & Timmy Jones of Cairo, GA; Jeff Gainous of Bainbridge, GA and Suela Gainous also of Cairo, GA; her grandchildren, Brittney & J.L., Carley & Cole, Aubrey, Brantley, Caroline & Jordan, and Ryan; her great-grandchildren, Emileigh, Tripp, Carlton, and Claire; and her brother, Marlon Glover and his wife, Betty of Dallas, GA. In addition to her parents, Olga was preceded in death by her husband, Louie Carlton Gainous; her son, Carlton Gainous; her grandchildren, Taylor Gainous, Benjamin Gainous, and Kyle Jones; and her siblings, Cullen Glover, Lenton Glover, Cecile Meachum, Velma Adams, Sara Argo, and Nell Higginbottom.
The Gainous Family would like to express their sincere appreciation for the kindness and compassionate care from Bainbridge Healthcare and Kim Bowles with Integrity Hospice.
