|Jack Cecil Black (1922-?)|
Jack (her brother), the baby of the family, was born on the 27 February 1922.
In the war (WW2) he served as a rear gunner in the air force, then Squadron Leader. He was awarded the DFC and other awards during his service in the war. During his service in England he met and married Audrey. They returned to Australia where they had three children, the eldest a girl, and two boys. Jack retired from the forces in the 1970's as Wing Commander.
Audrey (the wife of Jack Black, Olive's brother) a herbalist gave 300 almonds to a bride at her wedding in 1988. It’s an Old Italian custom, which has been adopted in Australia, to do the almonds up with lace into small pretty bundles. The number of almonds in each bundle must be an odd number, for good Luck.
New husband, new life
Olive Emily Black was divorced from Donald Arthur Stickler (1911-1986), her husband, in 1941; and later married a John Bull. Pat Stickler (daughter of Olive Black) didn't see her mother again after her parents separated. Pat's Aunt told her that her mother spoke often of her, and saw her marriage photo in the paper. So Pat felt that in away her mother kept in touch with her; but bitter that her mother's side of the family wasn't talked about after the separation.
Olive Black died in Brisbane, Australia on the 21 April 1970 when she fell from a moving bus. Buses didn't have closing doors in those days. She lingered for three days, and then died without regaining consciousness.
