OBITUARY OF   OSCAR A. OLSON ---(1870 - about 1934???)



The following obituary of Oscar A. Olson is taken from one of the Denver papers. Mr. Olson is well remembered here, being a son of Mr. and Mrs. Peter Olson, Pioneers of this locality, and a brother of the late Mrs. N. P. Swanson of Kiron. He was born on the Olson homestead, one mile south and half mile east of Kiron, and grew to manhood there.
"The faithful service of Oscar A. Olson, for 32 years a confidential secretary at the Denver National Bank, and the second oldest employee in point of service at the institution, continued yesterday until death was only a few hours away.
Mr. Olson left his home at 2708 E. 14th avenue at the usual time, yesterday morning and went to the bank, greeting his comrades there with his customary quiet friendliness. At 9:00 am he complained of feeling ill and went home. At 1:00pm he died, a victim of a heart attack.
Today would have been his 64th birthday. He was born 15 Dec 1870 at Kiron, Iowa, and was employed for a time by the Colorado Southern Railroad.
Thirty two years ago he went to work for the Denver National, when Joseph A. Thatcher was president, of the bank. He has filled the same position ever since. The outstanding traits that his associates at the bank recall were his quiet good nature and his unassuming loyalty.
He was a member of Albert Pike lodge and No. 2 Chapter of the Masonic Order and a member of the Colorado Commandery No. 1.
Surviving is his widow. The funeral will be conducted at 3:30 p.m. Monday at the Olinger mortuary . Cremation will follow at Riverside cemetery.
