Elizabeth “Betty” Anne Olson, age 93 of Annandale, passed away on Monday, December 13 in Cottonwood, Minnesota. Elizabeth Anne Olson was born on June 5, 1928 in rural Annandale, Minnesota to Frederick F. and Annie D. (Carlson) Olson. She was baptized and confirmed at St. John’s Lutheran Church in Annandale, of which she was a lifelong member, and graduated from Annandale High School in 1946. She lived all but the last eight months of her life in Annandale. Elizabeth worked at Lakedale Telephone Company for many years and then worked for American Family Insurance up until her retirement. Elizabeth loved to travel and always looked forward to her annual vacations with her sister, Helen. They visited many sites across the country and took their nieces and nephew along on special trips when they were children. She enjoyed reading and had a number of favorite authors. Elizabeth loved cars and driving; she drove well into her late 80’s and was sad when she could no longer drive her beloved red Jeep. She loved shopping, jewelry, her purses, and having her hair and nails done. Elizabeth was involved with the Christian Women’s Club and Sewing Club. She enjoyed visits from family, especially her great-great nephews and great-great niece. Her apartment was decorated with drawings from Grady, Greta, and Brett. She is survived by her sister Barbara J.

She was preceded in death by her parents, sisters Helen L. Olson and Virginia M. Rotsolk, and her brother-in-law Robert L. Crouse. Her family is extremely grateful for the wonderful care she received while living at Fieldcrest Assisted Living in Cottonwood. In lieu of flowers, memorials can be made in Elizabeth’s memory to Prairie Home Fieldcrest in Cottonwood, MN or the Cottonwood Ambulance. Services for Elizabeth will be on Saturday, January 15th at 11:00 a.m. with visitation one hour prior to the service all at St. John’s Lutheran Church in Annandale, MN.
