Olga Vickers James, 83, of Birmingham, Alabama, passed away on Aug. 18, 2019.  

Mrs. James was always active in her local church and was a loving wife, mother and proud Big Mom and Memaw. She was an avid fan of Alabama football, and Olga’s passion was making all things beautiful. 

She lived large, gave cheerfully and loved big as the sky.  

She’s survived by husband of 64 years, Leo James of Birmingham; daughters, Patti (Rick) White of Franklin and Pam James Travis of Birmingham; sister, Betty Vickers Manasco of Birmingham; grandchildren, Carrie White (Matt) Roden, Jamie Elliott (Ryan) Miningham, Tori White (Derek) Jones, Joy Travis and Hope White (Mark) Fields; and great-grandchildren, Sophie, Will, Lillie and Lucie Roden, Leo, Ellie and Georgia Miningham, and Zoe, Lincoln and Charlie Jones.  

Funeral services will be conducted at 1 p.m. on Saturday, Aug. 24, 2019 at Southern Heritage Funeral Home, 475 Cahaba Valley Road, Pelham, AL, 35124.  Olga’s son-in-law, Rick White, will officiate. Interment will be at Southern Heritage Cemetery. A celebration gathering with Olga’s family will be at the Marriott, 3590 Grandview Parkway in Birmingham, immediately following the service.  

The family requests no flowers, but rather, that you would share special time with those you love and give thanks for all the blessings of life.
