Olson, Lorraine (7 May 1945 - 7 May 2014)

I was born Lorraine Patricia Kotowski, on May 7 of 1945 in Cook County Hospital in Chicago. My mom and dad were Emil S. and Stella E. (Yaron) Kotowski. At the age of one, we moved to Lublin, WI. I graduated from Thorp High (Class of ’63). On December 21, 1968, I married the love of my life, James C. Olson. We moved west and helped raise six kids as foster parents. We adopted two sons, Mike and Joe. They gave us four grandsons, three granddaughters, and one great-granddaughter. I had many, many good friends that made my life wonderful.

I passed away on May 7, 2014, with Jimmy and Joe by my side.

I was preceded in death by my parents and brother, Don.

A special thank you to James for the years of LLC he gave me; he is great; thank you, to Joe for all the help when I needed you, and to Chris Nowak. God bless the doctors of Mayo Health System and Home Hospice.

I was cremated and will be taken care of when Jimmy is ready.

I was truly blesses in my life and am with my father and loved ones. There will be no services. Remember me with fond memories. Love, L.P.O.
