Claudia Fae Olson
January 30, 1940 – July 29, 2019
Claudia Fae Olson was born 15 minutes before her twin sister Patricia to Ralph & Reatha Olson in the home of her grandparents Lewis & Agnes Stone on January 30, 1940.
In a time when parents would send special-needs children to institutions, Claudia’s parents kept her at home. She attended school with her twin sister who looked out for her.
Claudia loved dogs and holidays. In her early adulthood she would walk to church all by herself. She developed a deep love of baseball and the Mariners, and would accumulate numerous pieces of memorabilia (plaques, bobble-heads, calendars, books, jerseys, etc.). She would watch every game she could.
Claudia also enjoyed being social with her friends at her active day programs in Bremerton & Tacoma. She was universally loved wherever she went because of her sweet disposition.
Claudia died peacefully at Good Samaritan Hospital in Puyallup on July 29, 2019, in the presence of loved ones. She is survived by her sister Patricia Hanks, brother Harvey; nephews Brian (Gretchen), Mike (Tammy), & Curt; her great nephews and nieces Ashley, Randall, Peter, Sadie, Samuel, and Tara. Her beloved Tommy (the bear) resides in the home of Mike and Tammy.
