Elinor M. Olson, age 95 of Lanesboro, Minn., died Tuesday July 23 at the Gundersen Harmony Care Center in Harmony, Minn.

Elinor was born April 16, 1919 in Waseca, MN to John and Bertha (Stone) Wendland. She grew up in St. Charles, Minn. where she met her husband-to-be Robert (Bob) Olson. They were married March 6, 1943 having recently celebrated their 71st anniversary.

She also worked as a switchboard operator for six years and served as a secretary at the Lanesboro Sales Barn after moving to Lanesboro. She was a member of Elstad Lutheran Church where she was always on call to help “bring food” whenever needed.

Elinor and Bob owned and operated the City Forty Farm for 54 years – retiring and moving to Elinor’s “little dream house on the hill.” Elinor was the epitome of a farmer’s wife, tending not only to household and outdoor chores but helping her husband with the record keeping of their Registered Purebred Brown Swiss and at one time raising over 10,000 chickens.

Elinor is survived by her husband Bob, sons Robert A. (Sandy) of Winona, Rollie, (Julie), Harlingen, Texas; grandchildren, Douglas (Angie)Olson, Hudson, Wis., Kelly (Mike) Schroeder, Winona, Danielle Olson, (Scott Fisher), Rochester; great grandchildren – Sarah and Ryan Olson, Tanner and Sadie Gray, Tawni and Jaden Kramer and nephew Larry (Pam) Nuszloch), Chandler, Ariz.
