Anita Olson-Armer

August 21, 1951 — September 16, 2021

Anita Maria Olson-Armer was born on August 21, 1951 to Inga Haapakoski and Alfred Belliveau (Montenarro) in Telluride, Colorado.

Anita was an only child. Anita was a strong caring woman towards anyone who crossed her path of life. She was put on earth to take care of her loved ones and everyone else. Anita migrated to Durango with her daughters and lived to see two more generations of her life. Anita was the rock of her family. She had a big heart. She taught us so much in our life. Most of all she taught us love.

Anita was a Leo. She loved reading books. Anita loved music (heavy metal, classical rock and Irish music) she had a green thumb for plants and gardens. She loved cats and even fed the raccoons and deer. She was talented with art, making jewelry, cooking, baking. Her family was everything to her. She decorated for every holiday. She kept her ancestors’ heirlooms safe ranging back to the 1800’s. She took pride in that! She lived a full life of 70 years.

Anita passed away peacefully on September 16th, 2021 at 10:05 p.m. from pneumonia and kidney failure, in the arms of her granddaughters Sabrina and Tuesday.

Anita Maria was preceded in death by her great granddaughter Everleigh Grace August 6th 2021 and her mother Inga passed when she was 19, and soon after her father Alfred passed as well. Anita's grandmother was Lempe Haapakoski who had passed away when grandma was young. Everleigh was the first to pass in almost 60 years of our family history!

Anita is survived by: daughters Carol & Rebecca Olson; grandchildren: Sabrina, Tuesday Thomas and Corey Olson; great grandchildren: Daniel Salter, MeMarie Wells, Abbinae Robinson, Nova and Vaughn Olson, Everleigh Olson and of course her cat, Jackie Blue. Anita wanted to be cremated and her ashes spread in the mountains. Private family services will be held at a later date.
