Dear Olson family, It was very sad to hear the news of Konnie's death. Growing up in Nerstrand, I have so many wonderful memories of her: as the paper boy, being in school with Beth-Ann and Audra and just seeing Konnie in town. I am richer to have known her. She was one of the sweetest people I've ever met. In friendship, Matthew, Mary Ellen and Lillian Braaten
