Alice Sarah Olson

 

Alice Sarah Olson, age 90, of Mondovi, passed away on Saturday, August 6, 2022 at Beehive Assisted Living in Eau Claire with her family at her side.

She was born the third of four children on January 31, 1932 the daughter of the late Roy and Minnie (Steinmetz) Clark.

Alice graduated from Colfax High School in 1949.  She married her high school sweetheart, Darrel Olson on October 20, 1951 at St. John’s Lutheran Church in Bloomer.  While stationed in Ft. Bragg, North Carolina, their first son, Douglas was born.  Following Darrel’s honorable discharge in 1956, they moved to Mondovi where they welcomed 2 sons, Bruce and David and then their daughter, Nancy.

Alice worked at the Mondovi Canning Company and Huntsinger Farms for many years, hoeing horseradish with crews and built many wonderful and lasting friendships.

She loved to garden and grow flowers.  She also taught her children about gardening, where they had to pick pickles and take care of the gardens in order to purchase their toys.  Alice’s love of gardening was what began the start of Olson Farm Produce and Greenhouse in 1980.  She worked hard over the years, as she planted, hoed and harvested with her family.  Alice found great enjoyment visiting with all the customers until her retirement when she turned 80.

Alice and her husband enjoyed fishing at the cabin in Barns and riding snowmobile.  They also enjoyed traveling to Hawaii, Mexico, Alaska and Costa Rica along with numerous fishing trips to Canada with their son, David.  Alice’s grandchildren will forever remember the trip to Alaska and how grandma attended many of their sporting events.
