MADISON-Betty J. Olson died on November 17, 2013, at the age of 88.

She is survived by her beloved son, Kent. She was preceded in death by her son, John, who died at an early age, and her mother who were both very dear to her heart. Life has held a bitter taste for many years for Betty, but sweetened by the kindness and good care of the staff at Harmony Assisted Living, Care Wisconsin, Agrace HospiceCare, and South Madison Coalition for the Elderly.

She will be remembered by her faithful friend, Susan, and others along her journey who have been important to her.

Betty will be buried in Hayward next to her mother.
