Dale M. Olson, 72, of Lanesboro, Minn., passed away March 21, 2014 at the Chosen Valley Care Center in Chatfield, Minn.

Dale was born October 14, 1941 in Lanesboro to Melvin and Clara (Berge) Olson. He graduated from Lanesboro High School in 1959. He served in the United States Army from 1960-1962, part of that time in Germany. On April 3, 1965 he married Valerie Aske at the Whalan Lutheran Church. Dale farmed throughout his life, but also worked for the City of Lanesboro and for Fillmore County as a maintenance supervisor for 27 years.

He enjoyed spending time with his family and friends, especially his grandchildren, whom he loved dearly. He was busy taxi driver for them and loved taking them out for breakfast. Dale was a jokester and he and his friends often played jokes on each other. He loved mowing his lawn and working around his farm with his Allis Chalmers tractors and his Kabota. He liked keeping animals on the farm for him and his grandchildren to enjoy. Over the past 10 years he has been a faithful caregiver to Valerie, his wife of 49 years. He will be remembered for his kind heart and always being willing to help his family and friends.

Dale is survived by his wife Valerie, son Jon of Rockwell, Iowa, daughter Sondra (Scott) McElmury, of Fountain; grandchildren Steven McElmury, Stephanie McElmury, and Chais Olson; brothers and sister-in-laws Carol Olson of Minneapolis, Marge (Hyatt) King of Dallas, Bonny (Dick) Engen of Whalan, Minn., Nancy Aske of Mabel, Minn., Glady (Rick) of Stewartville, Minn., Robert Engen of Whalan, Tom Engen of Mabel. Numerous nieces and nephews, among them, Matthew, the only nephew on the Olson side. Dale was preceded in death by his parents, brother Kenneth Olson, and brother-in-law Mike Aske.

A Celebration of Life service was held for Dale at 1:30 p.m. Saturday, March 29 at the Whalan Lutheran Church with Rev. Pat Hinkie officiating. Visitation took place at the church on Saturday, March 29, from twelve-noon until the time of service. Burial with military honors accorded by Whalan American Legion Post 637 followed the service at the church cemetery.
