Olson, Kathryn Magdelene (Schjoneman) (3 APR 1936 - 18 MAR 2015)

Honoring Kathryn's wishes, there will be no public memorial service. Any memorials may be given, in Kathryn Olson's name, to the House of the Dove.

Kathryn was born April 3, 1936 in Unity, Wisconsin to Antone and Magdelene (Ven Roy) Schjoneman.

She graduated from High School in 1955 and from St. Joseph's School of Nursing in Marshfield in 1958. Over the next 40 years, she went on to work in many different departments as a Registered Nurse at St. Joseph's Hospital. In 2000, Kathryn retired from her last position as a Palliative Care Nurse where her compassionate and caring ways touched the lives of many families. She spent her entire life caring and giving to others. We were truly blessed to have her as an angel here on earth and she will be deeply missed.

Kathryn married Clifford Olson in 1961, they later divorced. Kathryn enjoyed spending time with family and especially watching her grandchildren growing up. She enjoyed camping in earlier years, Sunday drives, going out for dinner, reading and a good cup of coffee.
