A British great-grandmother was among the victims of the Fort Lauderdale shooting, according to reports.
Olga Woltering, who was in her eighties, was revealed as one of the five people killed in Friday's mass shooting at the airport when her church posted a touching tribute to her online.
The Catholic Church of the Transfiguration in Cobb County, Georgia, described Mrs Woltering as "charming" and "one of the most joyful, loving, caring and committed people".
Olga was so charming, calling everybody "Lovey" or "Love" in her unmistakable British accent. The picture above shows her normal face, complete with her beaming smile!
Her life revolved around her kids, grandchildren, great-grandchildren, and hundreds of extended family at Transfiguration.
There are no further details available at this time, but Fr. Fernando Molina-Restrepo says: "Olga was one of the most joyful, loving, caring and committed people I have ever met. This is a horrible tragedy for everyone here at Transfiguration, especially because Olga was so loved. Olga and Ralph have been members of our Transfiguration Family since October 1978. May God give consolation to all of the victims of this tragedy and may God give eternal rest to those who died. Especially to our beloved Olga. Peace."
