Obituary for Mary C. Olson

Mary Catherine (Marek) Olson, 58, of Coleman. On May 7, 2020 the most incredible mother and wife left our world in the early morning hours. She was surrounded by family when she passed from this world after a courageous battle with cancer. Mary was born March 20, 1962 in Oconto to LuLu Marek and the late Elwyen Marek. She was employed at Unlimited, then Scott Paper, until making her way to Green Bay Packaging Coated Products. Mary had a love for life and could make anyone feel comfortable with her caring and fun personality. She put her family before herself, making sure she was there for every important event in their lives. Mary was a devoted grandmother. She had a magical way of interacting with her grandchildren — knowing exactly how to captivate their imagination. Some of her favorite past times were biking, spending time at her family’s cottage, kayaking, fishing, motorcycle riding, and catching toads, to name a few. She had a love for all of god’s creatures. She especially adored her dogs and horse, and even cared for stray cats and possums. She was always busy being crafty with sewing or making cheesecakes around the holidays. Mary was a member of St. Josephs Catholic Church, Oconto and attended mass there whenever she could.

Mary is survived by her husband of 24 years Bill “Bo”; daughter, Chynna (Kevin) Brochtrup, Green Bay; step children, Derek (Lisa) Olson, Oconto Falls, Elizabeth (Klayton) Kindt, Sturgeon Bay, Darren (Jessica) Olson, Pound; mother, LuLu Marek; six grandchildren, Korbin, Konrad, Danica, Lyla, Oliver and Myles. She is further survived by her sister, Barbara (Nick) Kleifgen, Wisconsin Rapids; and two brothers, Steve (Ferry) Marek, Oconto, Jim (Cheryl) Marek, Madison; nieces, nephews, and other relatives.

Due to the Coronavirus pandemic the family has decided to postpone the celebration of Mary’s life until the safer at home order has lifted. Online condolences may be expressed at
