Eileen Kaufer Olsen was married to Mal Olsen for 52 years and they lived in the Medford and Jacksonville, OR. area where they raised their children and where they operated a watch repair and jewelry shop.
Eileen was the wife of my father’s best friend from high school, Mal Olsen. My mom and dad and Mal and Eileen were close friends all through the remainder of their lives. After Mal died in 1998 and my mother Virginia died in 2002, Dad and Eileen continued to keep in touch by phone. Their relationship became closer after a visit by Eileen to Fargo in about 2004. Dad later left Fargo, ND to visit family in Arizona and then to see Eileen in Medford, OR to ask her to marry him. Soon after she accepted his marriage proposal. They got married in January 2005 and had several good years together before Eileen was diagnosed with cancer and died soon after in Sept. 2013. This was about 6 months after Dad had been moved in March 2013 to Arizona from Medford because of his failing physical condition. Their very happy late life relationship and marriage had been an inspiration to all of us kids.
Services for Eileen were held on Sept. 12, 2013 at Sacred Heart Catholic Church in Medford, OR. with burial following at Memory Gardens in the Olsen plot where her husband Mal, son Gary and grandson Tyler had also previously been laid to rest.
