Alf Olsen of Camrose, Alberta passed away on Feb 3, 2019.  He is survived by his son Keith (Anne); step-grandson Rob; brother-in-law Stan Schlaak and sister-in-law, Eva Ledene.  He was  predeceased by his wife Thelma; son Dennis; siblings Martin, Gladys (Helga) , sister Hilda (who died in infancy) and numerous nieces and nephews.

 

Alf was born in Bawlf, Alberta on October 6, 1923.  He married Thelma Leiren on Oct 29, 1950 and they farmed at Bawlf until 1959 when they moved to Camrose.

 

After moving to Camrose he worked at a number sales positions selling cars, farm equipment, life insurance and real estate.  During his life  insurance career he won several sales awards and qualified for trips to Washington, D.C ., Fort Lauderdale, Puerto Rico and Minneapolis.

 

For many years Alf was an avid hunter and regularly hunted ducks as well as deer.  He was supporter of the Camrose Credit Union and served on the credit committee for many years.  He was also a supporter of the Canadian Lutheran Bible School and helped raise money for them for a number of years.

 

Through their life time Alf  and Thelma enjoyed two trips to Norway and cherished their memories of “the Old Country”.

The family is grateful for the care received at Bethany Meadows and prior to that, the care received at Tofield Long Term Care facility.
