Cynthia Olivas

June 19, 1949 - January 22, 2022


A Life Well Lived 

Cynthia Jene Olivas, 72, of Nelson BC crossed over the threshold on January 22, 2022.  Cynthia was born in Dayton Ohio, June 19, 1949 to Gene and Teresa Olivas.

Cynthia lived a life full of humble respect and honed integrity. She brought curiosity and deep interest in others to the table and had a scholar’s love of diving deep into understanding the ways of the world, plants, people, food, places, and world events.

She had a deep commitment to the cooperative movements; having started 3 Community supported gardens with shareholders, and 2 cooperative bakeries.

She was generous with her time and her ability to fix just about anything.

Knowing you Cynthia has become like a sprouting, growing seed within your loved ones and friends. We will look for you in every garden, skyscape and hot springs..

She is survived by her companion Diane Walters, her sister Lisa Taucher, brother in law Tom Taucher, nephew Gabe Taucher, Niece Maria Waits, and mother Teresa Olivas. She had a strong community of friends who will miss her lively wit and curious nature.

Our thanks go to the doctors and nurses of ICU in Trail Regional Hospital.

Donations can be made to Kootenay Coop Radio and Kootenay Coop Carshare program.

The seeds she has planted will grow deep in the hearts and souls of so many who she has touched.

“To see a world in gemination is to see it truly.” Rudolf Steiner
