Katherine M. Olsen, a loving mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother, passed away on June 15th, 2023, surrounded by her family. Katherine was born on April 27th, 1930, in Bronx, New York to Walter and Almira.

Katherine had a deep passion for education and pursued her high school diploma, laying a strong foundation for her future.

Her devotion to her children was apparent as she instilled good values in them that have stayed with them till this day.
