We have an In Search Of update for
you tonight and unfortunately it is a sad one.
Jenny Olson, the Holmen woman we spotlighted back in
November, lost her battle with cancer this past weekend.
As you may remember, Jenny Olson faced
her terminal cancer diagnosis with optimism and positivity.
"Choose hope" became her motto with
many of her friends, family and
students proudly wearing her message on these t-shirts.
Jenny was a wife and mother of two.
She was a beloved elementary school teacher
and spent her career nurturing students in
the Onalaska, G-E-T and Holmen school districts.
We spoke with Jenny's husband Brian today who told
us she passed peacefully surrounded by friends and family.
Brian commented that because of Jenny and her
amazing spirit - so many people will
live their life choosing 'hope' each and every day.
Funeral services will be held at
eleven AM Saturday at Holmen Lutheran Church.
In lieu of flowers, memorials are preferred to
Holmen Lutheran Church or a charity of your choice.
Jenny leaves behind her husband Brian, 8-year-old daughter Elise
uh-leece and son Ben, who will be 6 tomorrow.
Jenny Olson was 35-years-old.
