If the stars seem a little brighter now, it is because heaven has welcomed one of the brightest spirits I have ever known. Grandma Schwaller was 97 years old, and she touched the hearts of those who knew her. Her passions and talents were many.... cooking, baking, gardening, canning, fishing, camping, sewing, knitting, ceramics, and making her family and friends feel like the most important people in the world. Her legacy will live on in her kids, grandkids and great grandchildren...our memories, the handmade gifts and carrying all the knowledge she passed on over the years. If I am gardening, baking or canning, you can be sure grandma’s lessons are being put to use. RIP Grandma

The Olson Funeral Home and Cremation Service has been entrusted with Laura’s arrangements.
