MAXINE LOUISE (GOOLD) OLSON Maxine Louise Olson, age 84, formerly of Atlantic, Iowa, passed away Wednesday, February 6, 2008 at the Elk Horn Salem Lutheran Home in Elk Horn, Iowa.

She was employed at the Blue Star Company in the egg department until her marriage on May 1, 1954 to Arnold Edward Olson. The couple settled in Atlantic where they were blessed with a daughter. The family will remember her as always a very kind person and loved by everyone. She enjoyed crafts such as making the button hang up towels and working puzzles; she raised dogs (would have two or three at a time - her favorite was Chihuahuas); and especially loved being together with the family.
