Obituary

Norma I. Olson was singing “Alleluia” as she was received into God’s loving arms on March 7, 2020 at Eventide, Fargo, N.D. with her loving family by her side.

Norma was born in Fargo, N.D. on July 23, 1931 to Beatus and Benora Bale. She was raised on the family farm south of Horace, N.D. She attended grade school at Pleasant 8 Country School and graduated from Kindred High School in 1949. She attended Concordia College majoring in Home Economics and Music and also sang in the Concordia Choir.

While in high school she met Lyle Olson of Leonard, N.D. They were married two years later on June 17, 1951. Norma joined her husband working side by side on the family farm raising grain and caring for the livestock.

Norma was active in 4-H, Ladies Aid, Hollyhock Homemakers, Leonard Cemetery Association, and Church activities. She was Sunday school superintendent, Sunday school teacher and sang in the church choir. Norma also sang for weddings and funerals.

In 1953, Lyle and Norma welcomed their first son, Rodger followed by a second son, Paul and a daughter, Barbara.

Norma is survived by Rodger (Kathy) Olson, and their children, Kyle (Tara) and children Eva, Nora and Brynn; Jason (deceased); Bryce Olson; Aaron (Rachel) and their children Sawyer, Lincoln, Walter and baby due in April; Kristin (Aaron Opheim) and their children, Camilla, Olivia and baby due in August; and Kathryn Olson.

Norma’s family was very important to her. She loved to attend all of their activities.

Norma was preceded in death by her husband Lyle and grandson Jason, her parents and brother, Jens (Vye) and sister, Rikka (Erling) Weiberg.

    So sorry for your loss.
    I have to remind you of one of my favorite times with Norma, as Rodger and Paul will remember, one day on the farm Norma invited me over for dinner, we had lutefisk, it was great but Norma and I laughed because Lyle and you two were nowhere to be found as dinner time. One of many fun times on the farm!!
