Olsen, Alice  
Alice Olsen 1928 ~ 2015 Alice Olavarria Olsen, 86, slipped away quietly Wednesday, February 18, 2015 of natural causes. She was born October 23, 1928 to Constantino Olavarria and Concha Albisu Olavarria. Her birth, in McDermitt, NV was unique. Not in a hospital but in Room #6 of the White Horse Inn. She attended grade school in McDermitt, NV and graduated from Humbolt High School in Winnemucca. Later she moved to Boise, ID to live and attend St Teresa's Academy, earning her nursing degree. She married James (Jim) Olsen on April 14, 1949. Together they had 3 children, Janis True (Bill Moriarty), Dennis Olsen and Sharon Pearl (Dave); six grandchildren; 11 great grandchildren and 1 great great grandson. After raising her children to school age, she returned to her nursing career for 29 years at St. Alphonsus Hospital. She was well thought of by her peers and received the "Employee of the Year" award in 1975. She was very humble about this award, though the award was quite impressive considering the many employed at the hospital. After retirement, they bought a motorhome and away they went, visiting grandchildren and seeing the U. S. They were members of the Caldwell Elks Lodge #1448; Good Sam Club and life long members of the Western Riding Club. Even though she was not a horse-woman, she worked tirelessly behind the scene at every competition, camping trip, week-end ride, dance, or event held by the Riding Club. We knew she was there cheering us on and cheerfully doing the support work that any event requires. They snowmobiled and camped, always enjoying the many fun times with friends and family. She especially enjoyed many good times at their Clear Creek Cabin making wonderful memories with her well loved grandchildren, children and many good friends. The memory of our mother and grandmother will be celebrated Friday, February 27, 2015 at 11:00 AM at Summers Funeral Home, Ustick Chapel, 3629 E Ustick Rd., Meridian, ID 83646 Memories and condolences may be shared with the family on Alice's webpage
