Micki and Patrick Olson's Final Expenses

Hi, my name is Missy Lancour and I'm raising money for a local family who experienced a devastating loss on Saturday, April 22, 2023.

Michelle (Micki) Olson and her beloved son, Patrick, passed away tragically when a fire broke out in their apartment building early Saturday morning. Sadly, Patrick succumbed to the fire before he could get out of the building. Micki was removed from the building and transported to the hospital where she later passed away surrounded by her family. In the wake of this disaster, they leave behind a daughter and sister, Amber.

Micki was a kind soul who worked hard and loved deeply. She grew up in a tight-knit family, with whom she remained very close. She was a self-proclaimed “bookworm,” who enjoyed watching the adaptation of a book only after thoroughly enjoyed the written version. Micki had a quirky sense of humor and enjoyed a good laugh. She leaves a huge hole in the hearts of everyone she touched and is terribly missed.

Patrick was a nice young man who loved hanging out with friends and playing video games. He was helpful and kind-hearted. In 2020 when a fire broke out in the same apartment complex, Patrick put his personal safety aside and assisted several of his neighbors out of the building to safety. He was even able to rescue some of their pets. Patrick was a true hero.

When a disaster like this happens, it is incredibly difficult to get through, but when it happens twice, in one day, to one family, it is devastating.

Please consider donating to help offset the cost of Micki and Patrick’s funeral, so that their family can grieve without having to worry about how to pay for their final expenses. Micki and Patrick were good people, and their family could use the help right now.
