Stan Olson

May 24, 2018
It is with sadness that the family of Stan Olson announces his death from cancer on May 24 at the Abbotsford Regional Hospital. Born in Saskatchewan, he came as a child to BC and lived most of his life in the Lower Mainland.  He attended Briercrest and the University of Saskatchewan, and worked at Trinity Western University for 32 years as a librarian. After retiring, Stan was very involved in creation care as well as seeking understanding and reconciliation with Indigenous neighbours.

Survived by his wife of 38 years, Marijke, his children, Karen (Luke) and Dave, his brother Ken (Marilyn) and by other family members in Canada, the US, and Australia.

A Memorial Service was held at Emmanuel Mennonite Church in Abbotsford, at 1:00 pm on Wednesday, May 30, 2018.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Trinity Western University or A Rocha Canada.
