Bridget Mary (Hull) Olson, 64

Bridget was born to Woodrow and Mary (Skinner) Hull on Nov. 11, 1954, in Austin. Bridget met Allen Olson, and they were married and had two children, Corie and Trevor. They moved to Owatonna where Bridget worked at OTC in computer entry. She later went to work for Blount Inc., and eventually Caterpillar where she retired from the engineering department.

Bridget enjoyed creating, she loved gardening, quilting with her mother, and spending time with her grandchildren who she cherished very much. She was a dedicated “hockey mom,” making sure Trevor made it to early morning practices and weekend tournaments all over the great state of Minnesota.
