Olga Woltering, Terry Andres and Michael Oehme were three of the five victims killed Friday at Fort Lauderdale International Airport when a gunman started shooting into a crowd at baggage claim, ABC News reports.

Woltering, 84, had flown into Florida with her husband, Ralph, for a cruise. The Georgia resident was a devoted Catholic woman who "was so charming, calling everybody 'Lovey' or 'Love' in her unmistakable British accent,” according to a statement on the website of the church she attended, The Catholic Church of the Transfiguration.

"Her life revolved around her kids, grandchildren, great-grandchildren, and hundreds of extended family at Transfiguration,” read the statement.

Andres, 62, was from Virginia and in town to go on a vacation with his wife, who was not harmed in the shooting.

"He was well-liked and respected for both his dedication to being a volunteer as well as his professional approach to his job as a support tech," read a statement from the Oceana Volunteer Fire Department/VBFD, where Andres had been a volunteer support technician since 2004. "We mourn his passing as we do all the victims of the senseless attack in Ft. Lauderdale."

Oehme, 57, was with his wife Kari in Fort Lauderdale, getting ready for a Caribbean cruise. 

Kari Oehme was shot in the shoulder but is expected to recover, Michael’s sister, Elizabeth Oehme-Miller, told the Associated Press.

Five people were killed and eight were injured in the shooting. Esteban Santiago, an Army veteran, is in custody for the murders.
