Chester Charles Olson

March 27, 1939 – May 2, 2023


Chester passed away May 2, 2023 at St. Paul’s Hospital in Saskatoon at the age of 84 years.

Chester is lovingly remembered by his loving wife of 28 years Marlene; son Glen Olson (Jenny Prusky); granddaughter Korenna Fleury; daughter Sharlene Olson; brothers Blaine (Diane) Olson and family, Alvin Olson and family; stepsons Richard (Claudette) Gessner and Morgan (Lorie) Gessner; grandchildren: Shad (Amanda) Gulbranson and family, Mathew Gulbranson, Shawn Buziak, Amanda Buziak and family, Dustin Gessner and family, Jaimee Russell and family, Alyssa Vig and family, Hillary Illenseer and family.  Chester is predeceased by his father Oscar Olson; mother Anna; sister Paulette; and brother Angus.

Chester was born to Oscar and Anna on March 27, 1939 in Pleasantdale, SK where he spent his childhood and school age years.

At the young age of 19, Chester became employed in Saskatoon and was very dedicated to the art of flour milling in his position as shift miller with CSP Foods and the Saskatchewan Wheat Pool until his retirement in 1994.

Chester married Marlene on April 29, 1995.  Together they enjoyed many happy times, farming in Pleasantdale during the summers as well as travelling, camping, and fishing with family and friends.

Chester always enjoyed visiting with his CSP Foods colleagues on coffee row, sharing stories and laughs.

Chester and Marlene shared a very special romantic and loving relationship.  Marlene lovingly cared for him during the last few months of his declining health and stayed by his side until his peaceful passing.

Special thanks to Holly Darmokid, Colleen Munroe and Charlotte Fitzpatrick for their care and support to Chester and Marlene for the last several months at their home.

 A private family burial will take place at a later date.  In lieu of flowers the family kindly requests donations can be made to the Alzheimer Society of Saskatchewan.
