Obituary: Hazel Wennergren Olsen

Hazel Wennergren Olsen Hazel Wennergren Olsen died peacefully at home in Salt Lake City Sept. 24, 2005. Born in Logan, Utah June 17, 1908 to Oscar and Caroline Wennergren. She owned and operated a beauty salon in Logan for many years until her marriage to Ed T. Olsen in 1976 when she moved to Salt Lake City. Ed preceded her in death in 1990. She is survived by numerous nieces and nephews and an "adopted" family through Ed Olsen: daughter Marlene Guio, granddaughter Michelle King (Lyman) and great-grandchildren, Cameron and Sierra who loved and cared for her until her death. We have many wonderful memories of Grandma Hazel: teaching us to make baking powder biscuits, berry pies, fudge; enjoying her dinners of French toast on TV trays, New England boiled dinner, zucchini casserole, learning crocheting, going out for Hires burgers and root beer, bird watching, seasons changing, and planting gardens. You planted the seeds for a full harvest in our garden of life and gave us the daily sunshine of your spirit. We love you. Special thanks to Margaret Gill a sensitive, caring friend and Dr. Thomas Caine her wonderful physician for over 30 years. Thanks also to many friends and family for loving their loving service to Hazel. A graveside service will be held at the Logan Cemetery Saturday, October 1st at 2:00 p.m.
