Warreen Marie Olson, 76, passed away peacefully under Hospice Care and surrounded by family, on October 6, 2021, due to complications of Colon Cancer. Warreen was born in Brooklyn, New York on March 26, 1945 and grew up on Long Island, NY, graduating from Northport High School. Soon after High School, Warreen joined in marriage with Ogden R. Olson, of Huntington, NY. Warreen and Ogden, eventually moved to Muscatine, Iowa where they raised their two daughters, making Muscatine their home for nearly 30 years. Following Ogden’s passing in 2010, Warreen made her home in Norwalk, Iowa where she remained until her passing. Warreen had a strong passion for home decorating, along with enjoying many years working with Ogden on their home, lawn and property in Muscatine. Warreen greatly enjoyed her family’s annual summer trips to Long Island, NY where the family enjoyed many years of summer time memories with both her family and Ogden’s family. Warreen also enjoyed her bowling leagues, singing with the Sweet Adelines International, and her time with the Muscatine Garden Club.
Warreen was very close to several family members, and loved her neighbors and friends in Norwalk. Warreen greatly enjoyed her grandkids during family gatherings and watching the kids play football and sports over the years. She will be missed by her family members and friends.
