Olsen, Susan D. (nee Cleaveland)

February 12, 1969 - May 31, 2018

Age 49. Passed away peacefully, surrounded by family on May 31st. She joins her father Tom, and her grandparents, in the great beyond. Survived by loving husband Kirk, mother Marlys, siblings Jennifer (Larry) Louden, Kate (Mike) Brazil, Alex (Anne) and John (Catherine). She was super-aunt to 8 nieces who also survive her. Countless other family and friends have lost a bright light in their lives. Susan did it her way, but made sure no one was hurt in the process. She had a voice like a songbird, a smile like the sunshine, and her joyful attitude had a gravitational pull. Funeral Mass, June 16 at 11am. Visitation at 10am. St. Joan of Arc Catholic Church, Mpls. Private burial. “Fare thee well now, let your life proceed by its own design. Nothing to tell now, let the words be yours, I’m done with mine.” (Grateful Dead/Barlow/Weir)
