Olive E. Baucom passed away March 19, 2017 in Westminster, Colorado. She was born January 13, 1922 in Kansas City, Missouri to William and Nettie (Reynolds) Eastham. Olive grew up in the Kansas City area and graduated from Northeast High School. She met and fell in love with Ray Baucom and they were married May 7, 1945 in Kanas City. Ray and Olive were blessed with two children Dennis and Barb. Olive chose to stay at home and make sure it was a welcoming and inviting place for her family.
Olive enjoyed being in the garden, planting and growing a variety of plants. She loved to cook and that was always reflected in the meals she prepared for her family and friends. Olive had a fondness for the slot machines, the nickel slots were her favorite. She was an enthusiastic supporter of the Denver Broncos and cheered them on ringing her cowbell.
Olive is preceded in death by her husband, Ray, parents William and Nettie, and her sister Ruth Burns. She is survived by her children Dennis (Sheryl) Baucom and Barb (Dan) Lansing. Grandchildren Michael (Jennie) Baucom, Steven Baucom, Ryan Lansing, and John (Kate) Lansing; great grandchildren Jason Lansing, Jayde Lansing, Raelynne Baucom, Averey Baucom, and Sophie Lansing.
