In Memory


Ellen Blattman Olsen 101 years. My Grandma lived an amazing life. She joined the church in Norway then immigrated to the US. She raised four children, and influenced grandchildren, great-grandchildren and even great-great grandchildren! She was a widow for 50 years. She lived on her own up until this week. Thanks for the krumkake, kringle, and goro. What a legacy, what a life!

So so neat!!! I really believe one person can make such a difference in their family and provide a lasting positive legacy to be handed down generation to generation.
