Olive was born on September 11, 1932, in Rocky Boy, to John and Philomene (Sandene) Champagne. She was raised in Rocky Boy, attending school there. In 1952, she married John J. Bauer Jr. in Chinook, and the couple lived in Brockton for a few years before relocating to Havre, where they remained. The couple had 12 children, and Olive worked at various jobs, but mostly as a housekeeper for the local motels. After her children were grown, she helped raise her grandchildren so their parents could go to work. John passed away in 2006, and Olive enjoyed her time with her family.

She was an outgoing and outspoken woman who was very loving and giving, raising a close-knit family. She was a great cook, always providing a delicious meal. She was also very proud of her home and children, keeping both as clean as possible.

Olive was preceded in death by her husband, John Bauer Jr. in 2006; her daughters Kathy and Eldora Bauer; her son Jerry Dale Bauer; four grandchildren; one great-grandson; her parents, John and Philomene Champagne; her sisters Clara, Patty, Karen, Cecelia, Georgie and Helen; and her brothers John Jr. "Little Johnny," Raymond "Jo Jo," Buddy, Walter, Buster, David "Tenus," and Gabe.

She is survived by her daughters Ingrid "Debbie" Bauer of Havre, Karen (Rollie) Gramley of Billings, Clara Bauer of Havre, Terry Gayle Bauer of Great Falls, and Ionia Lohman, Audrey Bauer, and Thea Bauer, all of Havre; sons Laurence "L.J." (Kim) Bauer, John Richard Bauer, and Bruce Wayne Bauer, all of Havre; 30 grandchildren; 29 great-grandchilden; two great-great-grandchildren; her sister Joy Bunton of Great Falls; and numerous cousins, nieces, nephews, and other extended family and friends.
