Olimpia passed away on April 21, 2019 from cancer. She died at home, peacefully, curled up next to her parents. Olimpia was so many things to all of us, a daughter, a sister, a sister-friend, a lover, a teacher, a healer, a doula, a roommate, an artist, a story teller, a writer, a dancer, a champion for women’s reproductive health, an angoleira, a yogi, an earth-woman, and so much more. We will miss her bright, bright light. Memorial get-togethers for Olimpia may still be scheduled—we will post any further information on this blog and her Facebook page.
In the meantime, please share your memories of Olimpia via comment below. While her community is spread far and wide, we can gather closer here. Don’t be shy! And you can send her family love via private message on the “Contact” page of this blog, too.
