Anna Olson

May 31, 1934 — January 29, 2024

Langdon, ND

Anna Jean Olson, 89, of Langdon, ND, passed away peacefully on Monday, January 29, 2024, at Our Lady of Peace Hospice in St. Paul, Minnesota.  

Anna Jean Olson was born May 31, 1934, in Vang, ND.  Her parents were Johanna and William Anderson.  Her father, William, died shortly before she was born, so her uncle Lawrence Knutson took in his widowed sister and her children. Anna grew up and attended school in the Vang area, except for a short period of time during which she was in the Easby area. She married Hans Martin Olson on December 31, 1958, at the West Vang Lutheran Church.  They lived on their farm in Loam Township for decades, and she spent many hours behind the wheel of combines, trucks, and lawnmowers.  Several years after her husband’s death in 2004, she moved to Langdon.   She was a member of United Lutheran Church in Langdon. She was pretty good with technology for a grandma and made video calls, streamed gospel and Elvis Presley songs, and found the right websites to watch grandkids play sports.  She always knew the latest news and the weather forecast and was happy to join you for a trip to Dairy Queen.  She enjoyed traveling to places like California and Hawaii or simply driving around the countryside and visiting the farm. She was independent, living in her own home in Langdon until she had a small stroke in October 2023.

Anna is survived by her brother, Kenneth Anderson, of Lakota, ND; daughter Sheila Olson (Paul Brodziski) of Stillwater, MN; son Steven (Jamie) Olson of Langdon, ND; grandson Adam Brodziski of Stillwater, MN; granddaughters Lexis and Isabelle Olson of Langdon, ND; sister-in-law Helga (Dennis) Schuschke of Fargo, ND; and many nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by her parents; husband Hans; and sisters-in-law and brothers-in-law: Muriel Anderson, Andrew (Helen) Olson, Henry (Bernice) Olson, Erling (Anna Mae) Olson, Olin (Ethel) Olson, Lloyd (Elizabeth) Olson, Alda (Duaine) Raeder, Ole (Marjorie) Olson, and June (Howard) Marsden.

She was a private person, and per her wishes, there will not be a public memorial service.

Memorials are preferred to Our Lady of Peace in St. Paul, Minnesota; Cavalier County Senior Meals and Services; or United Lutheran Church in Langdon.
