Olson, Marvin Boone (30 May 1925 – 3 April 2010)
Marvin B. Olson, 84, Black River Falls, passed away early Saturday morning, April 3, 2010, at Pine View Care Center in Black River Falls with his family at his bedside and also in the care of Black River Memorial Hospice.
Marvin Boone Olson, son of Rudolph and Saddie (Palmer) Olson, was born May 30, 1925, just east of Levis in Garfield Township, Jackson County. He was baptized and confirmed at the Lebanon Lutheran Church, rural Osseo, and attended Prime Country School.
He was united in marriage to Rosemary Beth Stuart Aug. 26, 1961, in Colfax. The couple farmed in rural Humbird before moving to Black River Falls in October of 1964. At this time in his life, he took a job with Beloit Pipe and Dredge, where he worked three years before starting employment with the Jackson County Highway Department. With the county he enjoyed snow plowing the Interstate and operating the heavy equipment, especially the end loader. He retired in 1989 after 22 years of employment with the county.
Recreation outdoors in Wisconsin brought great joy to Marvin. He loved fishing, hunting, riding snowmobiles and 4-wheeling. He also enjoyed the hunting and fishing trips to Canada and out West. He attended many cattle auctions, tractor pulls, and watching horse pulls reminded him of his farming days. He also loved Norwegian cooking and old-time dancing.
He will be deeply missed by his wife, Rosemary of Black River Falls; three daughters, Rosalinda Prince of Fall Creek, Jeannie Aldach (Mike Andree) of Black River Falls and Donna (Steve) Johnson of Neillsville; four sons, Roy Olson of Black River Falls, Daniel Boone and Cathy Olson of Indiana, Myron Olson (Robin Lewallen) of Hixton and Wayne Olson (Jill Bohmann) of Eau Claire; sister, Gena Coach of Eau Claire; 16 grandchildren and 10 great-grandchildren.
He was preceded in death by his parents and grandparents.
Funeral services will be held Thursday, April 8, 2010, at 11 a.m. at the Assembly of God Church in Augusta with Pastor Dale Hazard officiating. Burial will be in the Levis Cemetery, Jackson County.
Friends may call from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. Wednesday at the Anderson Funeral home in Augusta and one hour prior to services Thursday at the funeral home.
