Ellen Evelyn Olson-Sax, age 71 of Decatur, Nebraska, passed away on Sunday, June 9th, 2019. At St. Mary’s Hospital in Grand Junction Colorado.
She was born to the late Irvin Olson and Violet (Haumont)Olson on June 2nd, 1948.
Ellen attended Weissert Grammar School and Broken Bow High School. Later in life she graduated from Western Oregon University. She was an active member in the community and served on the School Board of Lyons Decatur Northeast. She was an active member of the United Methodist Church in Decatur where she hosted many Bible Studies.
The greatest joy of her life was her family. And likewise she brought joy to all who knew her. She was never too busy to take time, time to listen, time for a cup of coffee, or time to console a friend in a time of need. Let us not forget that she loved sewing.

Daughters Brenda (Mike) Martin of Mesa Arizona, Ann (Ryan) Chytka of Decatur Nebraska, and Son Marc (Melissa) Pisacka of Everest Kansas, and 9 Grandchildren and many other family members.
