She attended the St. Ansgar Community Schools and at the age of 15, began working for Decker Meat Packing Company in Mason City, and retired at the age of 60, from Armour Meat Packing Company in Mason City.
Olga was united in marriage to Charles “Bud” Gordon Huntley on June 26, 1941, in Sioux Falls South Dakota.
Olga enjoyed riding motorcycles in her early years, making popcorn balls and strawberry jelly. She loved gardening, dogs, playing Bingo, going to stock car races, and watching Sunday NASCAR Races on TV. But her great love and enjoyment was her family and having all the family over for the holidays.
She was a member of the First Baptist Church in Mason City.
Those left to cherish her memory are her children, Patricia Thompson of Mason City, and Charles (Bev) Huntley of Oakdale, MN; four grandchildren, Cheryl (Duane) Hicok, Kim (Jim) Benttine, Keri (John) Myran, and Mike (Tanja) Huntley; nine great-grandchildren, four great-great-grandchildren; as well as many nieces, nephews, and many other extended family members and friends.
Olga was preceded in death by her parents, Earl and Bertha Carroll; her husband, Charles “Bud” Huntley in March 1994; son-in-law, Marvin Thompson, and grand son-in-law, Terry Diekhuis, three sisters, and two brothers.
The family of Olga's would like to say a very special thank you to all the men and women who helped care for our loved one at the Good Shepherd Health Center. You will never know what you meant to us, so again thank you so much!
