Olga Willden Sorensen
March 5, 1925 – February 1, 2010
Today my Grandma Sorensen passed away. She was an remarkable lady who taught me a lot about life and playing cards. I will dearly miss her but I know she’s in a better place.
My Grandma and Grandpa Sorensen were both (and still are) two very great people. Some of my favorite memories are of visiting them in Mayfield in the summer and spending time with them. We played a lot of cards.
For the last four years or so, my Grandma lived at my parent’s house – during which I lived there as well! So one day I walked up stairs with my AR-15 in a gun case and someone asked me, “What do you got there.” I pulled out the assault rifle, showed them and my Grandma said something like, “That’s a cool gun!” I, being in accord, asked her if she wanted to hold it, thinking to myself that she’d probably say no. To my surprise, she happily accepted, took it out of my hands and let me take a picture of her with it. To this day, this is one of my favorite pictures of my Grandma. She had a fun and happy attitude about life and never showed any reservations about having a good time.
My Grandma loved getting her family together and every year we would all unite and celebrate Christmas by going to The Golden Corral! Needless to say, it was always a spectacular time. I love my Grandma, and while she has passed on, I know I’ll see her again someday and in the meantime I’ll have some pretty awesome memories.
