Olivia is the homemaker in the Walton household, "Mama" to her tribe. She is also a very religious woman and finds great comfort in reading her bible. She supports John in all that he does and is a very firm mother to her children, not tolerating any nonsense from them, but expecting them to all pitch in and help each other. She is mostly calm and says that it is a bad day whenever she loses her temper. Olivia gets great joy from raising and nurturing her children and is greatly upset to discover that she should have no more children. She contracts tuberculosis and is sent to recuperate away from her family, and she misses them greatly. In A Walton Wedding we see an Olivia who has become more liberated and has decided that she needs to go back to school so that she can learn more about her country.
