Sheila Grace (James) Olson was born at Mercy Hospital in Coon Rapids to Earl Clyde and Joyce Elizabeth (Weyhrich) James on Nov. 4, 1968. Sheila attended Anoka Public Schools until she made Keith Elling Olson the happiest man in the world by saying yes to his marriage proposal.
They were married on Dec. 26, 1986 and moved to Chanute Air Force Base (AFB) at Rantoul, Ill. After being transferred to Hill AFB in Ogden, Utah, Sheila completed her degree as an oral maxillofacial dental assistant.
After Keith was honorably discharged from the Air Force, they moved back to Blaine, to start their family. She proceeded to bare, homeschool, and love six of the most amazing children any husband/father could imagine possible. Her legacy will live on through them.
Sheila’s patience, sweetness, and dedication as a mother, wife, and friend will forever be unmatched.
