Olivia McGarvey was paying attention. The Avon Grove sophomore listened as the Red Devils outfielders talked about the impact the wind was having as they tried to shag fly balls Monday. Then she watched as the majority of the pitches she faced were on the outside of the plate.

OLIVIA MATILDA SANDERS, a daughter of the South, brought her religious faith, her cooking skills and her deft needlework to Philadelphia at an early age. Her fried chicken was spectacular and her peach cobbler outstanding, but she was also known to family and friends as a quilt- maker whose products were coveted by all who saw them.

She could sit for six to eight hours at a time making her quilts - but never on Sunday.
