Carolyn Olson
June 19, 1934 to September 10, 2019

Carolyn was born on June 19th, 1934 in a small town in Upper Michigan. Her parents were Thomas and Martha Jurmu and she was the 6th of 7 children. Carolyn later moved to Duluth, MN where she graduated from high school. She met Paul Olson at Bethel Baptist Church in Duluth, where they were married in August of 1952.
Carolyn had 4 children. Her son Mark was lost in a tragic accident when he was only 19 years old.
She and Paul were active in several different churches including Elim Baptist, Eden Prairie Baptist, Minnetonka Baptist, First Presbyterian in Stillwater and Plymouth Congregational.
Carolyn worked in the market research industry for many years in Minneapolis. This experience led to her opening her own company in 1984, C.J. Olson Market Research, Inc. She built and ran this company for over 20 years.
She was a driven businesswoman, an advocate for those who struggled and a wonderful hostess for more gatherings than any of us can count.
Carolyn is survived by 2 of her sisters, 1 sister-in-law, 2 daughters, 1 son, 5 grandchildren, 2 great-grandchildren and numerous nieces and nephews. She had a great many friends whom she enjoyed immensely.

Refreshments will be served at church immediately following the service. Private interment at Eden Prairie Cemetery. If so desired, flowers should be sent directly to the church and memorials will be accepted by the family for her favorite charities

I will always remember aunt Carolyn as a sweet kind woman who loved her family so passionately and wholeheartedly. Whenever my sister and I visited with our dad she always made sure we had a good time. I will miss her kindness and warmth, but I am also so thankful to have known her. -Lea Redding
