In Memory of
Marie Landes Olson
-

Marie Landes Olson, 90, went to be with Jesus Christ October 30, 2018 in Houston, TX. She was born on October 13, 1928 in Cleveland Township, Indiana to Bernadene Lora Crusen and Charles Garland Landes. Marie grew up in Canisteo and Almond, New York and married Norman Stukey Olson, Sr  December 31, 1946 in Alfred, NY. Marie and Norman had two sons, Norman Jr and Eric. They then adopted two daughters Katherine and Karen. They lived in several places in Alfred and Wellsville, NY before moving to Florida in the late 60’s. 

They made their home in Gulf Breeze, Fl where Marie was her daughters’ Girl Scout Leader and softball coach. After her divorce, she moved to Lakeland, Fl to be near her oldest son, Norman, Jr. Here she had the privilege of helping raise her grandson, Kris.

After her son Norman (Pete) passed away in 2010, she moved from Lakeland, Florida to Houston, Texas to be near her daughter Karen and her husband Bruce.  Marie leaves behind one son, Eric and wife Carol; two daughters, Katherine Neff and husband Mark, and Karen Martin and husband Bruce. She also leaves behind grandsons Kris Olson, David Gutierrez and Blake Martin, and granddaughter Kaley Martin. And she also leaves behind two great-granddaughters Katie and Gavie. She also leaves behind her beloved niece, Dawn Miller, and several other nieces and nephews.

Marie was diagnosed with dementia in 2017 and lived her last year in Memory Care. She passed away with her daughter Karen at her side in the tender care of Hospice Plus at Heartis Cypress.

No services are arranged as Marie’s wishes were to be cremated and her ashes spread over her grandmother’s grave in New York as she and her grandma were very close. May she rest in peace and watch over the next generation.
