OLGA (PEDROFF) GOULOFF
OLGA (PEDROFF) GOULOFF, 89, of Fort Wayne, passed away early Friday morning, Feb. 10, 2017 at Harbour Assisted Living. Born on March 26, 1927 in Canton, Ohio, she was a daughter of the late Mitchell and Stoyna (Evanov) Pedroff. Olga graduated from Canton McKinley High School. She moved to Fort Wayne in 1946, when she married Methodi Ted Gouloff after a long distance courtship during World War II. As a young woman, Olga worked as an office manager for a local industrial company, as well as a legal secretary for a Fort Wayne law firm. In 1965 her husband opened Ted and Tom's Restaurant (which later became Ted Gouloff's Restaurant). Olga was an important member of the team until 1996 when she and her husband retired. Olga's greatest joy in her life was being a Mother to her two children, a Baba to her four grandchildren and two great-grandchildren. She and her husband loved spending time at their winter home in Boca Raton, Fla. She was an avid gardener, a wonderful cook, and enjoyed her hobby of crocheting. She shared many crocheted items with family and friends as well as needy children in Fort Wayne. She is survived by her children, Michael (Gretchen) Gouloff and Beverly (Patrick) Chasey; granddaughters, Ali (Jared) Bowersock and Anya Gouloff; grandsons, Ryan (Angela) Chasey and H. Ross (Heather) Chasey; two great-granddaughters, Analiese and Hayden Kate Chasey; brother, Mitchell (Katherine) Pedroff.
