Richard Olson

June 17, 1926 — November 12, 2018

Richard (Dick) Olson, 92, of Milford, Ia. passed away peacefully on Monday, November 12, 2018. Dick was born on June 17, 1926 on the family farm near Terril, Iowa, to Leon and Helen Olson. Dick attended and graduated from Lake Center High School. Dick was united in marriage to Tillie Noble on December 27, 1947. Dick and Tillie raised 3 children while working side by side on their farm for many years, working the ground, harvesting crops, and raising livestock. Dick enjoyed flying a piper cub plane in his younger years. The family spent summer weekends at Lost Island Lake, teaching their children to water ski and gathering with close friends. As the children got older, time was spent at Leech Lake on fishing trips. Once their children were grown, Dick and Tillie enjoyed traveling, including an Alaskan cruise and a trip to South America. They spent every winter going south to Florida and later to Texas. Dick enjoyed playing cards with his Texas friends after Tillie passed away. Surviving family members include his daughter-in-law, Deb Olson; son-in-law, Eben Salton, and daughter, Becky Shatter (Ron). Also glad to have shared in his life are seven grandchildren: Robin Brown, Shannon Smith, Kelly Pedersen (Bob), Brian Salton (Elizabeth), Amy Shostak (Brandon), Jacob Shatter (Lisa) and Darren Shatter. Dick was also blessed with 12 great-grandchildren. He was preceded in death by his wife, Tillie Olson; son, Terry Olson; and daughter, Lynn Salton. Services will be held at a later date.
