November 18, 1934 — April 12, 2023

On Wednesday, April 12, 2023 Lorraine Janet (Heintz) Connell Olson passed away at the age of 88.

She was born the second of five children on November 18, 1934 to Stella (Winkleman) and Hugo Heintz. She was raised in the Genesee area and graduated from Waukesha High School in 1953.

Lorraine is the loving mother of Scott and the late Jim Olson.

During Lorraine’s working career she was employed as a bookkeeper at Waukesha Foundry. She also worked at Halquist Stone, Hartland Plastics, and RTE/Cooper Power. She was fortunate enough to spend a year in France. Many friends and family will fondly remember Lorraine by her amusing nickname “Bubbles”. Her grandchildren lovingly referred to her as “Grandma Hot Tub”. She enjoyed being out with friends, dancing, playing dartball or gambling. She had an extensive owl collection and loved her blue Cadillac. She cherished spending time with her sons and their families. While she was relaxing you could find her rug hooking, crocheting, or knitting.

Lorraine is survived by her son, Scott (Gail) Olson; daughter-in-law, Kandi Olson; grandchildren, Jen, Jeff, Becky, Allen, Lexi, and Aaron; and great grandchild, Miles; several nieces, nephews, and cousins. She is further survived by stepchildren, Darryl (Karen) Connell, Dennis Connell, and Janet (Scott) Klingbel; and step-grandchildren, Shawn, Kevin, Molly, Erin, Jay & Brian.

Lorraine is preceded in death by her parents; husbands, Ray and Phil; son, Jim; step-son Ted Connell; and siblings, David, Virginia (Ginny), Janice, and Joan.
