Sharon was born in Valentine, Nebraska on July 27, 1951. She grew up in Nebraska and attended a small country school. She graduated from South Sioux City High School in 1969. On October 11, 1969, she married Donald D. Olson in Winner, South Dakota. They lived in South Dakota and Nebraska during their 43-year marriage and lived 35 of those years in Gibbon.
Sharon was a loving mom, housewife, nurse's aide, cook and whatever else was needed at the time. Sharon spent her entire life caring for others, ever to her deathbed. She was more worried about what will happen to others after she is gone, than she was of her own end. Sharon touched many lives by helping and caring for others. Her big heart and caring ways will never be forgotten.
Survivors include her husband, Donald Olson of Gibbon; daughters; Lori Thorson and her husband, Troy, of Marshall, VA; Tracey Roeder and her husband, Richard, of Amherst, NE; Connie Walker and Larry Rachow of Gibbon, NE; Tina Walker and her husband, Clint, of McCook, NE; and Amanda Olson of Gibbon, NE. She is also survived by her 10 grandchildren and her two sisters, Beatty Smith of Gibbon, NE and Karen Kelly of South Sioux City, NE.
She was preceded in death by her parents; Wanda Jean Grimm and Dale Eugene Grimm; and two sisters, Patricia Olander and Connie Grimm.
The family would like to thank the hospice staff who provided the best home care possible and would also like to give their appreciation to those who spent endless hours supporting and attending her Ann Brown, Betty Smith, Brad Thompson, and many others.
