Maria E. Olsen was released from her earthly bonds into the arms of Jesus Christ on Thursday, August 19, 2021. Maria, daughter of Peter and Carmen Lopez, was born on August 8, 1928, in Manhattan, New York City, where she spent her childhood. She married Ron on January 7, 1956, raised 5 children, and was a grandmother of 12 and great-grandmother of 7. After 15 years of service to the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Maria retired in 1987. Her life was one of giving to her family, her church, and her community.
