Olga De La Garza Nance 78, of Victoria, Texas passed away on May 21, 2019. She was born October 21, 1940 to the late Samuel and Ophelia Guzman De La Garza of Goliad, Texas.

Olga married Robert “Bob” Nance on February 9, 1959 at La Bahia Catholic Church in Goliad, Texas. Olga and Bob celebrated 57 years of marriage. Olga waited 3 years to meet Bob and their beloved dog, Brutus in heaven.

On top of her daily workload as a mother and a wife, she became a frugal bookkeeper for numerous businesses across Victoria. Olga prided herself in being a businesswoman that could make a dollar out of a dime. She owned and operated Mode O’ Day clothing store in Towne Plaza Shopping Mall for a number of years.

She enjoyed sewing, cooking, needle pointing, and chatting with her sewing customers. Olga loved bragging about her grandchildren and sharing her favorite moments of their lives. Every person that met Olga would soon call her “DoDo”, a thoughtful name given to her by her grandchildren. Dodo enjoyed being a grandmother to all that she met, constantly baking and doting on those around her.

She was the eldest sister of 7 siblings. She will be dearly missed by her sisters; Yolanda (the late John) Thomas, Youvella (John) Carmichael, and brothers; Bobby (Mary) De La Garza, Ernest (Eva) De La Garza, Frankie (the late Diana) De La Garza, and Richard (Jo Ann) De La Garza. She was preceded in death by her parents and her brother, the late Samuel De La Garza Jr.

Olga will be remembered as a loving mother to her son, Frank David (Carol) Nance and daughter Nancy (Mace) Bennett. She had many “adopted” children she loved as her own, including Michael Moore, Darrell Green and the late Chuck Bennett.

Her grandchildren Devon Bennett (Marcus) Wright, Chase Bennett, and Bailey Nance will always cherish their memories of ice cream breakfasts, baking sugar cookies, weekly phone calls, mad money, and the never-ending love that she continually showered them with.

Her grand-pups will miss her treats, belly rubs, snuggles, and sneaking her breakfast. Our Dodo will always be in our hearts.

In lieu of a funeral service, Olga preferred to have a small private ceremony. She did not want her death to be mourned, but rather to celebrate her 78 years of life. As Dodo would say, “God go before me and prepare my way.”

To the family,

My condolences and prayers are with you all.
Mrs. Olga was a beautiful wonderful soul. She altered many pieces of clothing for my family and friends for many years. Every stitch was done with love and pride. I’m so saddened to hear she’s gone but so happy to know she’s gone home to be with the Lord. I’m going to miss her sweet hugs but most of all I’m going to miss our conversations. My sweet little lady( is what I called her) I will miss you but I will you see again one day!
