Olive was born on May 18, 1900 to Thomas Martin Brophy and Elizabeth Brown at 1327 Penn Avenue in the 9th ward of Pittsburgh. On January 13, 1925 Olive married George Leo Tenney at St. Patrick's Church in Pittsburgh's Strip District. I'm not sure how or where they met since in 1920 Olive lived at 2117 Liberty Avenue and worked as a clerk for the milk company while George was living in Oakland at 340 Kennett Square and worked as a clerk for a railroad so they didn't work together and were not neighbors. I would imagine she looked a lot like this when she met George. During their 38 years of marriage they had three children, George Gabriel, Richard Edmund and Margaret. Olive passed away September 22, 1975 and is buried in Calvary Cemetery.
