Bev’s journey began on August 18, 1948 with her parents Harold and Alice Rosenow of Osakis. She was born at the hospital in Alexandria.
Bev grew up on the countryside of Osakis. She gained her brother Terry in 1952. Together, they had many good times and laughs growing up. Bev enjoyed spending time on her grandma Fritzler’s farm and loved spending time with her aunts, uncles and many cousins growing up. Bev went to Osakis High School where she met some of her lifelong friends. Bev and her good friend Jane would enjoy going to dances and driving around on Sunday afternoons. Bev graduated from Osakis High school in 1966. After graduation she went to St. Cloud tech and developed many skills to be versatile in different jobs. She had strong work ethic and took joy in working hard.
In the summer of 1970, Bev met her other half Richard (Dick) Olson. They were married on May 1, 1971. For the first few years of their lives they lived in Maplewood and spent lots of time with family and friends. They enjoyed playing cards and going bowling. She stayed close to her family and friends from Osakis and they would spend lots of weekends with her parents, brother and family.
Bev and Dick prayed and waited a long time for the precious gift of children and on April 7, 1980 they adopted their son Michael and adopted their daughter Kristina on January 25, 1984. Soon after they had the two children they moved to Glencoe because they wanted to raise their children in a smaller town so they bought a 5-acre hobby farm. Bev and Dick still made time to go see her mom, dad, brother, sister-in-law and nieces in Osakis often. She loved spending time around family. There were many trips to Valleyfair, Twins games, and hotel stays as groups with Terry and his family.
Bev worked for Starkey Laboratories as a documentation manager where she met many new friends. In 1999, she moved to Savage and still enjoyed going to Osakis to visit with her brother Terry and sister-in-law Linda and her nieces Tara and Lindsay.
Bev always tried to give her kids experiences that she never had and really tried to give them the best life that she could. She was always proud of her son Michael for his many accomplishments, his most recent is being a great dad to his 3 kids and working hard for his family. Bev spent a lot of time with her daughter Kristina and son-in-law Jeremy and his family Mike and Gail Tiedeken. There was a lot of summer bbq’s and holidays that would be spent with them. Bev became a grandma to Morgan Tiedeken in the fall of 2006, Willie Olson in the spring 2015, Teddy Olson in the spring of 2020, and Fifi Olson in the fall of 2021. Being a grandma for Bev brought her such joy and many heartfelt smiles filled with love.
Bev moved out to New London and was able to spend lots of quality time in the county again with her cousin Pam. They had a close bond that Bev would call Pam her little sister. Pam took good care of Bev and would visit her often.
Bev was a woman who enjoyed learning new things every day. She was a patriot who loved her country. She had her own personal relationship with Jesus and was happy to share the good news of Him to others. She showed humbleness, meekness, kindness and love to others. She would say that she was a believer with many faults but saved by the blood of Jesus. She had a firm foundation in Christ, and Jesus was with her at her time of passing. She will be greatly missed but we celebrate her as a follower of Christ. Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: the old has gone, the new is here. 2 Corinthians 5:17
Bev is survived by her son Michael (Christa) Olson of Bloomington; daughter Kristina (Jeremy) Tiedeken of Albertville; grandchildren Morgan Tiedeken, Willie Olson, Teddy Olson, Fifi Olson; sister-in-law Linda Rosenow of Osakis.
