I was so saddened to hear about Kathy's passing. Kathy, was a dear friend of mine and I will miss her smile and laugh and all the great times we had together. When I think about all those memories, they will bring more smiles to my face than tears. The Olson's are like family to me and I share in your grief once again and you will remain in my thoughts and prayers. Love,Rosie (Fuecker) Miske

Sending my prayers for the family. I met Kathy in 1995 when I arrived in Willmar. She worked for Jerry Ammermann, whom I later married. The friendships in that office were very close. They were there for each other through all the ups and downs of life. I always delighted in visiting with Kathy. The news of her passing is sad. One more from that office has gone on to be with the Lord. It is a grand reunion for them. May the Lord be at your side with comfort today and in the days ahead,Mary AmmermannWillmar
