John's Story

Text size

Mankato resident, John Olson, age 83, died Thursday, September 28, 2017 at Autumn Grace Senior Assisted Living Center where he was surrounded by many devoted friends.

John was born in Minneapolis on May 21, 1934 to Albin and Leona (Larsen) Olson. He later moved to the Mankato area, worked with MRCI and built lots of friendships. He was quite the character, jumping at the chance to go on any outing and taking part in any group activity, especially when it revolved around sweet treats. A couple of his favorite sweets, were that of German Chocolate Cake and a cold glass of pop. He enjoyed playing cribbage, listening to music and singin along.

Besides Johns many friends and living center residents, he is survived by nephews, Larry and Brian; niece, Lynette; and their families.

A time to share and celebrate Johns life will be held at 1:00 p.m. Thursday, October 5, 2017 at Autumn Grace Senior Assisted Living Center, 118 Raven Court in Mankato. Arrangements with Mankato Mortuary.
