She was born June 9, 1933 in Shelley, Idaho to Oscar Olson and Myrtle Dial.

Ann was employed by Utah Power & Light and retired after 40 years of service.

She loved music her whole life and was an accomplished organist and pianist, playing for her local LDS church, in a dance band and providing music for numerous weddings and funerals.

Ann enjoyed watching her children and grandchildren play sports and was herself a keen golfer, becoming President of the Idaho Falls Women’s Golf Association.

She was an avid animal lover and had many dogs she loved dearly in her long life.
