Anne Olson, 78 of Big Piney, passed away June 17 at the Powell Valley Hospital in Powell.
Anne was born May 16, 1936, in Rock Springs to Pete and Eva Radakovich. She completed her formal schooling in the Boulder schoolhouse and graduated from Pinedale High School. She married her lifetime sweetheart Pete Olson June 6, 1955, in Pinedale. Together, they ran their ranch and raised their family of five children.
Anne is a past president and officer of the Cowbelles; in 1995, she was named “Ranch Woman of the Year.” She was also president of the St. Anne’s Alter Society for two years.
For 38 years, Anne has been a member of a long-standing Friday afternoon bridge club. She loved life on the ranch and socializing with friends and neighbors throughout Sublette County; yet her top priority has always been her family.
She is survived by her children, Stan (Cara) Olson of Big Piney, Joe (Lori) Olson of Upton, Julie (Brian) Sheets of Powell and Sally (Kevin) Morse of Cheyenne; and five grandchildren.
She is preceded in death by her parents and son Jim Olson.
