Susan Lynn was born September 12, 1951 in Minneapolis, MN to parents Rochie and Pauline (Marconi) Morin. One of five children, Susan enjoyed growing up in north Minneapolis. Part of close-knit neighborhood, she met her future husband, Douglas Olson, at a young age. It was truly love at first sight. Following high school, Susan and Doug were united in marriage on July 28, 1974 in Minneapolis. They were soon blessed with two children, Eric and Laura. Susan was a devoted wife, mother, and grandma throughout her life.
Together with her family, Susan enjoyed the outdoors—especially camping and fishing. Once the grandkids came along, Eric and Laura became second fiddle. She loved and supported her grandchildren in all of their numerous sports and activities.
Outside of the home, Susan worked for many years in Shipping & Receiving, making many lifelong friends along the way. In her free time, Susan participated in numerous bowling leagues. Often, she was joined by extended family members. She also enjoyed throwing darts and playing pool.
The family would like to extend their gratitude and appreciation to Touching Lives for the care and love they gave Susan in her later years after suffering from dementia for over ten years.
Outgoing, happy, caring, family-oriented, and always loving, Susan will be greatly missed by her children, Eric (Tera Josal) Olson and Laura (John Fitzgerald) Olson; grandchildren, Davonte, Trevon, Tia, and Damian Johnson, Madelynn Koch, Patrick and Morris Simmons, and Lucas, Leyla, and Johnny Fitzgerald; siblings, Roger (Linda) Morin, Janice Morin, and Dorine (John) Tapio; and many other nieces, nephews, family, and friends.
Susan is joined in Heaven by her husband, Doug Olson; parents; and brother, Ronnie Morin.Print Obituary & Condolences
