Peggy Ann Olson (Hanger) died peacefully at home Nov. 26, 2019, surrounded by loving family. She was 60.

She was born Aug. 27, 1959, in Hamilton, Ohio.

Peggy lived in South Carolina working as a deli manager until moving to Wisconsin in 2004. Peggy worked as a caregiver for the elderly for many years and in the deli at Walmart.

Peggy married her best friend, Edwin Olson, on July 17, 2012. Peggy enjoyed being on a bike, open road ahead, wind in her hair; this is a place you could always find a smile on her face. She treasured spending time with friends she considered family and children she chose to hold close to her heart and protected them with fierce loyalty. She had a fondness for animals and most recently adored her dog, Scooter, and cats, Mama Cat and Loki. She enjoyed watching birds, listening to music and the television could always be found on in the background. She loved the color purple, adored sunflowers and lilacs.

She was preceded in death by her husband, Edwin Olson, and best friends, Deb Przybcian and Rita Zimmer.

Peggy will be lovingly remembered by her stepdaughter, Allison Grimsby; many she held very close to her heart, Arianna Larson, Brooke Mitzel, Tommy Mitzel, Jordan Mitzel, Dustin Mitzel, Trinity Olson, Lizzie Zimmer, Anna Green and Sarah Benbouia. Special friends she considered family, Tracey Zmuda, Carl Olson, Kim Shultz, Nancy Olson, Sara Larson, Leslee Kanan and extended family and many more.

Per Peggy’s request, we will plan a celebration of life, date to be determined. Cremation services were provided by Bakken-Young Funeral & Cremation Services.
