Obituary of Sally Claire Olson

She was an accomplished real estate agent for much of her career in Atlanta. She had a beautiful soprano voice and was a soloist as well, often singing in the church. She enjoyed travel, was a voracious reader, and spending time with her family and friends. Sally also loved to write and sent many a beautiful correspondence, a habit that led her to use any scrap of paper in the home. She rescued many dogs in her life, with a special love for boxers and airedales. Sally is survived by her husband, Howard Olson, grandson, David Elvin (Laura), granddaughter, Jennifer Deuson (Nicolas), step-daughter, Heidi Myers (Mark), step-son David Olson, and five step-grandchildren and six great grandchildren. A private celebration of Sally's life will be held at Redeemer Lutheran Church, 731 Peachtree St NE, Atlanta, GA 30308 on Saturday, January 29, 2022 at 11:00 a.m. for the family.
