Olena “Tiny” DuBois was born Aug. 27, 1939, in Montgomery. She was married to Jessie Claude “J.C.” Antee for 27 years. They had a wonderful marriage of laughing, joking, working and fishing on the lake. Tiny lived in Montgomery all her life until she became ill with Dementia. For the last two years, Tiny was a resident at Oak Haven Community Care Facility. Everyone referred to her as “Mrs. Tiny” which was her nickname from birth. She always enjoyed spending time with people. Tiny worked most of her life in the food industry. Her love of cooking fed many children at Colfax Elementary for 15 years. In Tiny’s spare time, she enjoyed sewing, cooking and canning. She will be missed by all who knew and loved her.
