Obituary for Glen Olson

Glen Royal Olson, 90, passed away on July 14, 2019 surrounded by loved ones on the family farm.

Glen was born to Galena and Rosenberg Olson on October 11, 1928 on their North Dakota farm. They moved to Whatcom County when Glen was 9 years old and began farming in the Nooksack Valley, where he spent the rest of his life. He met the love of his life, Olga, at the Sumas roller skating rink and they enjoyed 70 years of marriage. They had many great adventures with their children throughout those years.

Glen is survived by children; Bob (Nancy) Olson, Carol (Don) Barnett, Jimmy (nickname Ole) Olson, and Judy (Rob) Meyer; six grandchildren-Tara, Brandon, Braelan, Tyson (Serena), Logan, Taylor (Shea) and siblings Don Olson and Dee Ball. Glen is preceded in death by siblings Arnold Olson, Helen Loreen, and Orwin Olson.

Glen had a busy life working at Darigold for 38 years, enjoying family (Olga, kids, and grandkids), dairy farming, traveling, hiking, FOY, Bocce Ball, funny movies, control of the TV remote, and daily servings of ice cream. Glen was described as a selfless person who always thought of his family and friends first while ready to help others in many ways. Later in his life, Glen loved to look out over the family farm (watching the corn grow), spending time with family and friends, and sitting on the end of the dock at Lake Whatcom.

A Celebration of life will be an Open House held at the family farm (3362 E Badger Rd, Everson) on July 19, 2019 from 12:00 pm -2:00pm. In lieu of flowers, please make a donation to the charity of your choice. Funeral arrangements are entrusted to Gillies Funeral Home and Cremation Services.
