Obituary of Olga Cornelson

CORNELSON – Olga passed away peacefully at 84 at the Herbert & District Integrated Facility on August 31, 2021 with her family by her side.  Olga was born at Gouldtown, SK on July 19, 1937 to George and Suzie Wiebe.  She loved growing up on the farm with 5 brothers playing baseball, riding horses, helping her mom with the chores and gardening.  She received her education at River Dell School completing Grade 8.  She met Ernie Cornelson in the fall of 1956 and they were married on May 5, 1959.  They started their married life on the farm at Gouldtown where they raised their her 3 children.  Being a farm wife, she enjoyed gardening, canning and baling while also enjoying her flowers and chickens, which was evident by her beautiful flowers this summer and all her chicken ornaments in the house. After they sold the farm and moved to Herbert, mom took a CCA course and worked for homecare for 15 years; she enjoyed spending her earnings “shopping”.  Once the grandchildren came along, mom and dad spent many hours travelling to spend time with them and watch them play sports.  Mom would at the spur of the moment to take a solo trip to B.C. to visit Wendell and family. She was very proud of her 7 grandsons and their accomplishments as she kept in touch with daily phone calls.  Olga was diagnosed with cancer in the summer of 2017 and fought courageously for 4 years.  Olga spent her last month in the hospital but enjoyed many visits with family and friends, and leaning heavily on her faith in Jesus.  Olga is survived by her loving husband Ernie, her daughters Cheryl (Brock) McLellan, Karen (Ron) Lasota, and son Wendell (Tracy) Cornelson; grandchildren Morgan McLellan, Jason Lasota, Greg (Hannah) Lasota, Brandon Lasota, Ryan (Emily) Cornelson, Tyler (Morgan) Cornelson, Tanner and Brooklynn, Cody (Lexi) Cornelson, Brett and Jacob.  Siblings Ben (Chris) Wiebe, Phillip (Connie) Wiebe; in-laws Helen Wiebe, Elizabeth Sadowski, Erna Wiebe, Harry Cornelson, Jake (Betty) Cornelson, Wes (Tina) Cornelson, Gary Gould and Lori Seymour. She was predeceased by her father George, mother Susie, brothers Abe, Jake and Rueben; in-laws Bernhard Sadowski, Norman (Lena) Cornelson, Betty (Abe) Dyck, Leona Cornelson, Dora Gould and Dave Seymour.  A graveside service was held on September 11, 2021 at the Gouldtown Cemetery, Gouldtown, SK.  Arrangements are in care of Parkside Memorial Funeral Home – Ryan Cappelle & Hayden Cappelle.
