NORTH PRAIRIE - Of North Prairie, Born to eternal life October 5, 2019 at the age of 91 years. Beloved wife of the late Norman Olson. Loving mother of Kathy (Pat) Murawski, the late Bruce Olson, Cindy (Duffy) Wage, Cheryl (Jim) Winter, and Kay Lynn Olson.

Interment private. Memorials to the Alzheimer’s Association appreciated. After 91 full years, Ruth has been called “home”. She loved fiercely and unconditionally. Her sparkling blue eyes and her smile always lit up the room and made everyone in her presence feel special. Certainly, she is rejoicing now as she was called home and greeted with “well done my good and faithful servant”. Though she is whole again in mind and body, those she left behind can’t help but miss her already. We love you, and are so thankful for a lifetime of memories with you.
