Mrs. Peter Olsen, 65 years old, who with her husband has been operating the Fairview Hotel and a general merchandise at Keeline for some time, and mother of Miss Dora Olson, formerly in the abstract business in Lusk, died last Sunday at a hospital in Casper.

The body, accompanied by relatives, was shipped to Omaha for burial last Sunday, where the funeral took place Wednesday.

Mrs. Olsen had been in failing health for the past two years, and she was taken to Casper last Friday, where it was hoped that a major operation would prove of some benefit. She took a sudden turn for the worse before the operation could be performed, and passed away Sunday.

Mr. and Mrs. Olson have been residents of this section of Wyoming since 1910, coming here from Omaha. They have a host of friends here who hold them in high esteem and will regret to hear of Mrs. Olson's death.

Besides her husband, Mrs. Olson is survived by two daughters, Mrs. Catherine Stafford of Omaha, and Miss Dora Olson, now in the abstract business in Douglas. She was formerly in the abstract business in Lusk in company with Cyrus Wertz.
