Olson, Doris D.



Doris D. Olson, 93, peacefully passed away on August 18, 2017. Dorie was born and raised on a farm near Valley City, ND and in 1944 married her high school sweetheart Wayne Olson.

She was a resident of Albuquerque since 1958 and after Wayne retired from Sandia National Laboratories, they volunteered for 20 years for Meals on Wheels and were active members of Faith Lutheran Church. She is survived by her children, Michael and Kathy, four grandchildren, Nick Gonzales, Teri Scobee, Christine Valdez, and Aaron Niday; 13 great-grandchildren, Alexis, Jack, Stephanie, Emily, Liam, Madison, Liliana, Oliva, Jeremiah, Kylee, Morgan, Madison, and Declan; 2 great-great-grandchildren, sister-in-law Judy Skare; numerous nieces and nephews, and her friends at Bear Canyon Estates. Dorie is preceded in death by her husband of 67 years, Wayne, brother, Donald McIntyre, and sister Jeanette Putnam.

Her countless kind gestures, hugs for everyone, her beautiful smile and sparkling eyes will be remembered by all who knew her. The family would like to extend their gratitude to the staff at Kaseman Presbyterian Inpatient Hospice for their loving care and the pastors at Faith Lutheran Church for their many visits and prayers. Contributions may be made in Dorie's memory to Presbyterian Hospice Program, Faith Lutheran Church, or to Kathy Olson, for the purchase a memorial tree to be located next to Wayne's tree for all to enjoy at Georgia O'Keeffe Park.
