Rebecca Olson Obituary

Rebecca J. Olson, 50, passed peacefully on Friday, May 12, 2023 at her home in Villa Grove. 

Becky was born August 12, 1972 in Kankakee, IL to Lawrence and Jane (Benoit) Rolph.  She married Brian Olson on December 3, 1994 in Bradley, IL.

She is survived by her husband of 28 years, Brian; two children, Holly (Noah Ferren) Olson and Daniel Olson; one brother, Chad Rolph; her mother, Jane Cahan; and her step-mother, Wendy Rolph.

She was preceded in death by her father, Lawrence Rolph.

Becky spent 29 years with the Villa Grove School system where her heart found its home.  Becky’s passion for teaching paired with her ability to foster relationships with students, parents and peers will leave a lasting impression for years to come. Becky truly fulfilled her calling by “Teaching the Children” as she heavily influenced the lives of countless students and community members.

Becky enjoyed reading on her screened porch at home and her annual beach trips with her friend Kendra.  She was always willing to lend a helping hand to anyone and loved to spend time with her family and friends.  She attended and was heavily involved with Victory Church. Becky will be greatly missed by all who were fortunate enough to have crossed paths with her.

A celebration of Becky’s life will be held from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. on Friday, May 19, 2023 at Victory Church in Camargo.  The memorial service will be at 11 a.m. on Saturday, May 20, 2023 at Victory Church with Pastor Duane Piercy officiating.
