Jane Olson was born December 10, 1930, at home in Red Lion, CO to Rueben Pleasant and Harriet Ellen (Laughrey) Blake. Jane was raised in Red Lion, CO until her mother passed. Then she moved to Haxtun with her sister Harriet and attended Haxtun Schools until approximately the 8th grade.
While at Harriet’s, Aubrey Olson would attend game nights where he met Jane. They fell in love and married in Sedgwick on March 5, 1948. Jane was a homemaker and mother most of her life. She began working later in life as a caregiver to Betty and Stella and then a housekeeper at the hospital.
Jane received her GED from NJC on May 19, 1986, to which she was very proud. She was recognized as the most determined student.
After Aubrey passed in 2003, Jane began to attend the Red Hat Society where she enjoyed time and meals with her friends. Then she began her square-dancing career, where she met many more friends. She enjoyed square dancing so much that she made some of her own outfits.
