Henrietta Emma Olson

Henrietta Olson, 87, of Medford, Ore., passed away August 18, 2011, at home with her daughters by her side. She was born in Langlade Wis., November 25, 1923. She was the daughter of Fritz and Esther Weisshahn, one of seven children.

On December 14, 1946, she married Conrad Olson and their love survived for 58 years. Together they proudly raised their six daughters moving to Ore., in 1961.

Henrietta, was an impeccable homemaker, loving wife, mother, grandmother and GG. Once her daughters were in school she worked seasonally for many years. In 2002, she was nominated Mother of the Year and we still can't understand why she didn't win. She enjoyed many girl gambling trips to various casinos and managed to make each one of her daughters feel they were her favorite. She was and will forever be THE MOMMA.

She was preceded in death by her parents; her husband, Conrad; and her daughter, Sharon Moyer; along with four of her siblings. She is survived by her daughters, Janet Olson, Marlene (Paul) Greeny, Linda (Randy) Finch, Carol (Chris) Glud and Bonnie Olson; along with her grandchildren, Josh Moyer, Mark Moyer, Hillary Weber and Matt Finch; and great grandsons, Austin Moyer, Grant Moyer, and Henry Conrad Weber; her two sisters, Eunice Doell and Margaret Franks.

A private service is planned.
