Diana Mae Olsen
Sep 24, 1945 - Dec 6, 2017
Diana Mae Olsen, age 72, passed away on December 6th, 2017 in Roseville, CA surrounded by her beloved family. Diana was born in Honolulu, HI, where she spent most of her childhood except for a few PCS tours on the mainland including Newport, RI and Point Mugu, CA. Her father was a career Navy man and Diana was a proud Navy brat. She loved all things Hawaiian, as she truly loved going to the beach with her sister and cousins. While enjoying a night out at the International Market Place, she met her husband when he sat on her purse. Despite this blunder, he asked her to dance to which she agreed and surprisingly trusted him enough to not step on her feet. They later moved to Sacramento, CA in 1976 and started a beautiful family. She was a loving wife and mother, a homemaker, and the heart of her family. Diana enjoyed attending her son and daughter’s sporting events, volunteering for school field trips, baking, and playing the slot machines. She dearly loved her family and cherished every moment spent with her grandchildren; as they brought her an abundant amount of joy. Diana is survived by her husband, Charles, with whom she celebrated their 44th anniversary this year; her daughter and son-in-law, Michelle and Jason Cotter; her son and daughter-in-law, Ryan and Demetria Olsen; her sister, Sandra Forrestal; her grandchildren, Iona and Liam. The funeral will be at 1 p.m. on Monday, December 18th at the Sacramento Valley National Cemetery at 5810 Midway Road, Dixon, CA 95620. Visitation will be from 1 to 5 p.m. on Sunday, December 17th at East Lawn Mortuary at 5757 Greenback, Sacramento, CA 95841.
