I was a classmate of Mary's in Alliance. Though we didn't really run around together - we knew each other fairly well and I always liked her so much. She was a kind and gentle soul . There is a loss in the world without her. Karen McGuire

Sewing retreats will never be the same without your infectious smile and that laugh you had, walking up behind me putting your hand on my shoulder to see what I was up to, I could go on and on. I will miss our chats and sewing together. You were a dear friend and I am sure you are enjoying "socializing" in heaven! Until we meet again!

Mary Olsen there are just not enough words to describe her kind heart her contagious smile and how happy she always was. I have so many memories of her from growing up with Charlie and from staying at thier house , church activities all the our sports she went to and how she graciously drove us home from them. How she dealt with us guys all the time I just don't know it sure took a saint to do lol She always made sure we had fun and food to eat even though she would always say I was the pickiest eater lol imagine that!!!! She was an amazing woman and will be greatly missed. Our deepest condolences hugs and prayers To all I am so sorry I can't be there. But know you are all being thought of and My family and I send our love.
