Olga Berger receiving the Senior of the Year Award in 1993 from then Governor Marc Racicot.

Olga Berger was a dedicated RSVP volunteer who loved her volunteer work. She began volunteering in the late 1980’s at the Smoke Jumper Visitor Center and was nominated by the smokejumpers for the Missoula County Senior of the Year award in 1993 and won.
Olga Berger passed away in October 2010 at the age of 101. In her will, Olga included a generous donation to Missoula Aging Services’ RSVP program. Her gift could not have arrived at a more opportune time. Just weeks before receiving her donation, Missoula Aging Services was notified that all RSVP programs nationwide would suffer a 20 percent reduction in funds because of Federal spending cuts.
Olga’s gift left more of a legacy than she probably ever imagined. It came at the exact time in which the program needed it most. In addition to Missoula Aging Services, two other local nonprofits received similar gifts from Olga’s estate.
Olga’s niece, Ellen Spalding, wrote us the following note after Olga’s passing: “Auntie was a private person regarding her finances but as her estate administrator, it was a real joy to me that she could help so many organizations.”
