Obituary Condolences

Joyce Virginia Olson began her journey to be with her Lord and Savior on Thursday, July 16, 2009, at Gerald Champion Regional Medical Center surrounded by family and loved ones. She was born May 5, 1931, in St. Louis to Lucille and Clarence B. Smith. She loved the outdoors, camping and hiking in the mountains, wolves and her dog, Shiloh.
She was preceded in death by both her parents and her daughter, Kim Olson.
As an only child she is survived by her husband and soul mate of 14 years, Oscar Ben Olson, of Tularosa; two daughters, Terry E. Johnson, of Mesa, Ariz., and Vickie Davis, of Yuba City, Calif.; and a son, Mike Lambert, of Yuba City, Calif. She had four stepchildren, Lisa Carvel, of Las Vegas; Tim Olson, of Tularosa; Judy Petree, of Alamogordo; and Dolly Gray, of Flagstaff, Ariz. She had numerous grandchildren, great-grandchildren, nieces, nephews and many friends. She will be truly missed by all who came in contact with her and grew to love her.
The Olson family would like to give a special thank you to all the nurses and staff members who took care of Joyce at Gerald Champion Regional Medical Center for their loving and caring support of Joyce and all her family members in this time of sorrow. Thank you.
The Olson family has entrusted their loved one to the care of Alamogordo Funeral Home to direct the arrangements. Cremation will take place locally at PCS.
