Service: November 24, 2018 1:00 PM
   Location: Dokken-Nelson Sunset Chapel

Please do not mourn for me.  I have been welcomed into the arms of our Lord Savior and all of my family and friends who have gone before me.

I am OK.

My father, Robert Tabor, and mother, Norieta Tabor, brought me into this world in Spokane, Washington.  I was an Air Force brat and I traveled the country and overseas, then ended up back in Spokane when my father retired from the Air Force.  There I graduated from Joel E. Ferris High School, went on to two years of community college, and started a career.  Then, on a blind date, I met my future husband.  We were married October 4, 1975.  In 1996, we were fortunate enough to move our family to Bozeman, Montana.  I had many different jobs during my life.  But the most cherished and important was mother and homemaker to two beautiful boys who have become exceptional grown men.  Did I mention I loved to cook?  Ooh, how I loved to cook.  It was great satisfaction to me that no one ever went home hungry.

I have left behind my husband of 43 years, Norman Olson; two sons, Donald Olson and his wife Katie Olson (Erickson), and Robert Olson and his wife Holly Olson (Lease); my four precious grandchildren, Clifford and Jett Olson and Isabelle and Tyler Olson; sisters, Kathleen Cross (Ken), Lorrie Hickman, and Elizabeth Hightower (Stu); and one brother, Charles Tabor (Laurie).  There are also numerous aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews and cousins.  I loved you all.

So please do not mourn for me.  Keep your memories in your heart.  Because I am OK.

A memorial service will be held Saturday, November 24 at 1:00 P.M. at Dokken-Nelson Sunset Chapel.
