Nancy Faith Olson

Nancy Faith “Nan” Olson passed away peacefully in her Grantsburg home on Monday, July 6, 2020 at 81 years old. She was born on January 27, 1939 in Virginia, Minn., and was a longtime resident of Cook, Minn., before moving to the Twin Cities. Nan was a loving wife, mother, grandmother, and friend who genuinely enjoyed spending time with those she loved – especially her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. She loved being outdoors and could often be found either in her gardens or driving a four-wheeler. Nan and her husband Elof loved to serve others by being active members of their church and their community.

She will be remembered by her husband of 64 years, Elof; her daughters Sheryl (Danny 2004) Satalino, Denise (Tom) Cloutier, Shelly (Joe) Zajicek, Sara (Les) VanHeel, Julie Alto, and Holly Alto; her sons Darrell (Candy) and Richard (Sandy); her brother Erland (Joyce) Alto; her 17 grandchildren and 16 great-grandchildren; her extended family and friends.

A private ceremony was held by the immediate family over the weekend. Arrangements were entrusted to Swedberg-Taylor Funeral Home, Grantsburg. Online condolences can be made at
