How Did We Do?

Mr. William E. "Bill" Olson, 55, of rural Burlington died Sunday, December 3, 2017 at Great River Medical Center.

Born November 27, 1962 in Maddock, ND, he was the son of Dennis and Shirley (Aabrekke) Olson. As a teenager he met Patricia A. "Patty" Olson at Bethel Baptist Church, Park River, ND where they were later married on June 8, 1985.

Bill was employed as a supervisor at Case New Holland in Burlington for the last six years. He worked in management at Menards for twenty-five years prior. Bill graduated from Edinburg, ND High School and earned his Bachelor of Science in Business Administration at Mayville State University in 1986.

He was a devoted member of Burlington Baptist Church where he enjoyed being an Awana leader and Trustee. He loved the outdoors and spending time working the land. He spent his free time hunting, fishing and working on a good project. He was known as someone that could do it all and always wanted to lend a helping hand. Above all else, he was a devoted husband, father, and follower of Christ.

Survivors include his wife Patty; one daughter, Jessica (Andrew Schupick) Olson of Mission, KS; one son, Alexander Olson of Burlington; his parents, Dennis and Shirley Olson of Edinburg, ND; five brothers, Dennis (Amanda) Olson Jr. of Billings, MT, John Olson, David (DeeDee) Olson, Timothy (Caroline) Olson, and Daniel (Tammy) Olson all of Edinburg, ND; one sister, Debbie (Bob) Sollom of Raleigh, NC; and numerous nieces and nephews.

He was preceded in death by his grandparents; brother, Carl, and beloved mother-in-law, Virginia Gillespie.
