Eileen C. Olson, age 89, passed away Thursday, August 27, 2020 at Dove Healthcare in Bloomer. She was born April 2, 1931 in Withee WI to Pierce and Gertrude (Kagerah) Owens. She married George Olson on September 20, 1952 in Withee WI. Eileen enjoyed her job as a surgery nurse working at Luther Hospital in Eau Claire and Bloomer Hospital until her retirement. She loved dancing with George, camping with the family, and singing in church choirs and the New Auburn Community Choir. She was a very creative person, making cakes, crafting Christmas ornaments, knitting sweaters, mittens and caps for the military. A true gift of love was sewing handmade quilts for each of her 16 grandchildren. Eileen’s flower gardens, plants in the plant room and vegetable garden displayed her green thumb. She was awarded many blue ribbons at the Bloomer Fair for her flower arrangements and quilts. Her strong faith, gentle presence and loving heart were felt by all who knew her.

She is survived by her husband: George of Bloomer; sons: Robert (Pamela) Olson of Bloomer and David (Wendy) Olson of Sioux Falls SD; daughters: Judith (Jonathan) Bayba of Wausau WI and Susan (Steven) Wall of Bloomer; 16 grandchildren; 6 great-grandchildren and one on the way; numerous other relatives and friends.

She was preceded in death by her parents: Pierce and Gertrude Owens; brother: Pierce Owens, Jr.; grandson: Joseph Wall.

Eileen is my aunt. I was able to view the funeral from my home in Pennsylvania. What a beautiful family! It is easy to see, after seeing your family, why God placed us in families. I'm so glad for the technology that allowed me to participate from afar, what a nice experience it has been! Our love and prayers are with your family.

I have known, and will know other women named Eileen in the future...
But, really, there will only be ONE Eileen. What a witness and warrior in every breath, every day.
The void is deep and wide... as was her presence and love. What a pleasure to serve her and to see a godly marriage on full display.

Eileen was a mentor by the way she lived her life. Her love for her husband and family was so evident as was her love for her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. I had the privilege of being a member of her church and what impressed me the most was her concern for others to come to Christ. Both her and George model the Christian life and I felt honored to know her and be a part of her Christian family. Blessings Eileen!
