Edith Mae Olsen, 97, passed away Thursday, May 9, 2019 at Carefree Assisted Living in Virginia, MN surrounded by her family and loved ones.
Edith was the mother of four children and an educator on the Iron Range who was one of the last one room school teachers in Minnesota. She was a wonderful French cook and her great meals were central to her family life.

Edith was preceded in death by her parents James and Winnifred Dalbec, originally of Hibbing, MN, husband Hans Jr., son Loren and by her four siblings.
Arrangements are with the Landmark Funeral Home in Virginia.
