Joyce Marie Olson

Joyce Marie Olson, 73, of Big Lake passed away peacefully on Monday, March 20, 2017.
A Celebration of Life will be held Saturday, April 1, 2017 between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. at Rockwoods Event Center (located at 9100 Quaday Avenue NE, Otsego, MN 55330) in the Four Seasons Room. We invite family and friends to stop on by and share a memory, a smile, or a hug with the Olson’s. A casual lunch will be provided, as we toast Joyce with love and laughter.
Joyce was born to Dale and Margaret McKelvey on October 2, 1943 and grew up in Minneapolis, MN. She attended Patrick Henry High School in Minneapolis, MN. She married Rollie Olson of Crosby on June 10, 1967. They made their home in Big Lake, Minnesota where Rollie was the Elementary School Principal and Joyce worked at General Mills and for the Big Lake Police Department as a secretary.
Joyce’s life revolved around her family. She loved spending time outdoors with her husband and attending her son’s every sporting event and activity. Her favorite title in life was “Grammy,” she spoiled her grandchildren rotten every chance she could get.
Joyce is preceded in death by her parents Dale and Margaret McKelvey and sister Carolyn Gaunt.
She is survived by her loving husband Rollie Olson of nearly 50 years, son Jack (Cara) Olson, brother Wally (Kathy) McKelvey, and grandchildren Austin and Brynn.
There is a void in our small family never to be replaced, but we will find comfort in all of the wonderful memories we have of this amazing wife, mom, sister, grandma and friend.
