June 3, 1962 - July 17, 2019
Lorrie Olson Hill 06-03-1962 – 07-17-2019 Lorrie Jeanne was born on June 3, 1962 in Overland Park, Kansas to Everett Leroy and Judy Jeanne (Lilienthal) Olson. Lorrie can be described in 3 words: Live- Laugh- Love. She was a very upbeat person. Very outgoing and as result had many friends. She also was very generous. She loved surprises, especially when it was making others happy. If someone happened to mention that they wanted a particular item, before you knew it she would be surprising them with it. A very fond memory of her was when she came to a family reunion at her mother’s home. She had so much fun, being with her immediate family, and then seeing aunts & uncles & cousins that she hadn’t seen for years. She was so happy. Unforgettable for All. We have many fond memories of Lorrie but this was a favorite memory of hers too. Lorrie worked as a caregiver for a few years before she was married. Then after that she settled into raising her boys and being a homemaker. She loved many kinds of music, but Jennifer Nettles was her favorite artist. Lorrie loved to shop for herself and others, clothes, jewelry, whatever caught her eye. And she loved good food. She came by it naturally, coming from a big family where food was the main topic for any event. Lorrie had a love for horses since she was young. When she was 11 years old, she and a friend actually stole a horse. She took him up to her grandparents’ house in Kirkland, thinking they could keep him there for her. She said he was homeless. She was so unhappy when grandpa Jack told her she had to return him to his owner. Lorries dream came thru when she was 15, her mom & stepdad bought a horse for her. She named him Bullet. Oh, what Joy! Years later Lorrie and her husband Don purchased 3 racehorses. They named them Joker, State of Mind and Definitely Diamonds. And one of her happiest days was August 6th,2006, seeing Definitely Diamonds win at Emerald Downs. Her stepdaughter Amber Lancaster was there and filmed it. A link on YouTube to watch the race is: https://youtu.be/6fn9DQolVJs Lorrie Loved the ocean. In fact, she lived in Ocean shores for several years. Other favorite things were Roses, the color pink, her favorite pet Tattan which was her dog who passed away. Her favorite sayings were, “It’s Party Time” & “Shop til You Drop”. Her favorite song was “Mother” by the group “Sugarland”. A month before Lorrie passed away, she had sent this to her mom. Lorries life was a happy one until she lost her oldest son Jeffrey, who was 22 years old, in a car accident August 17th, 2006. This happened 11 days after their horse Definitely Diamonds had won at Emerald Downs. She was blessed to still have her son Daniel, who she loved so very much. But the loss of Jeffrey was so difficult for her to deal with. This tragedy took a toll on her life and the lives of others in many ways. She had health problems for the last few years. She suffered with Asthma, then COPD. She was in the hospital many times these last few months. She passed away peacefully at home. We are grieving so much but also thankful that she will no longer be dealing with the pain she lived with for so long. And now Jesus has washed away her tears. A Bright Light has left this world. Preceded in death, son Jeffrey Peterson, her father Everett Olson, Grandparents Jack and Alice Lilienthal, Alfred and Florence Olson. She is survived by son Daniel Peterson , grandson Nathaniel Peterson, stepdaughter Amber Lancaster, mother Judy Parker, brothers, Wayne Parker, Michael Olson. Sisters, Lisa Cloutier, Shelley Parker & Donna Diesen. Niece Julia Diesen, nephews Matthew & Mitchell Cloutier, Sidney Diesen. And several aunts, uncles & cousins. She will be Forever Loved and Missed by All of her Family and Friends.
