Please don't remember me with sadness, don't remember with tears, remember all the laughter we've shared throughout the years. Now I am contented that my life was worthwhile, knowing that I passed along the way I made somebody smile. When you are walking down the street, and you've got me on your mind, I'm walking in your footsteps only half a step behind. So please don't be unhappy just because I'm out of sight. Remember that I'm with you each morning, noon, and night.
Mom, Grammy Kimberly Lynn Olson, passed away at the age of 63, with her family by her side. She was born and raised in Sioux City, Iowa, eventually moving to Colorado, where she started her family. Kim was a strong, determined, and fiercely independent woman with a vivacious personality that always made people laugh. This made her special and unique, so much so, that those caring for her in her final hours were touched by her in a way that (in their words) would have a lasting effect. She was a blessing to us all.
Kim loved her dogs (most recently Ludwig, Rusti, and Rommel), long rides in the mountains, camping, backyard BBQs, decorating, crafts, traveling to warm places, and sitting on the beach. But, most of all, she loved and adored her children and grandchildren; they were her world.
Kim, predeceased by her loving father, Russell Olson. Kim is survived by three daughters and her son-in-law's: Jennifer (Laune) Morrow, Wendy (Hal) McLaughlin, Kerry (Shandy) Aldrich, and six grandchildren, Trenton Headley, Cory Aldrich, Cameron Aldrich, Jaden Ernst, Mia Morrow, Tru Morrow. Kim was immensely proud of her family and left behind nothing but beautiful memories. Although our hearts are heavy, we will celebrate her life and find comfort in knowing that her peace, brings us peace. When you think of Kim, celebrate the memories you have of her. Remember that life is fragile, short, and should be lived to the fullest, as she did.
- Private family services will be held

I will always remember our camping trips they were a lot of fun even when you lost the gerbils for a little bit. Kim was a good friend and she was a good grandma I know she will be missed a lot not only by me and Tuffy but a lot of other people. I will miss you.
