“Life is good…!” After 85 years, Conny Elyse Olson (CEO), passed away peacefully on Thursday, September 1st. As the CEO of our family, she has left her mark and her legacy on all to continue.
In her ‘get er done’ spirit, she eloped with the love of her life, Dale Emery, and together they shared 62 years of love, honor, and commitment. Through their love they raised four daughters (Cheri (Jerry), DeLee (Scott), Kathy (Jeff), Janell (Tom), and had two infant sons (Curtis/Grant) who preceded her in death. They were further blessed with 9 Grandchildren (and 8 spouses) and 15 Great Grandchildren.
Despite many challenges, she always faced this life straight on. She had strength, grace, and wisdom beyond measure. She was your guiding light when things appeared dark. She was your ear when you needed it, and sometimes when you didn’t- but mostly she was your biggest cheerleader, celebrating the peaks in life and helping you realize you can navigate the valleys.
The family wishes to thank the many people who have supported our family over the past few years. A private service is being held on Wednesday, September 14th. If you would like to honor this incredible CEO, we ask that you take a moment to do a random act of kindness. A smile to stranger, a gesture of unexpected goodwill, or a laugh to brighten someone’s day. After all, per our CEO…, “Life IS Good”! Good night sweet momma, we will always love you bigger than the high, high world.
