Karen Geraldine Olsen
1954 ∼ 2018
Karen G. Olsen, 63, of Marstons Mills, MA died at Cape Cod Hospital on May 30.
Originally from Randolph, MA, she was the daughter of the late Herbert and Pauline (Mortelliti) Olsen, and the sister of the late Carla Olsen Good.
Karen graduated from Catherine Laboure College in Boston with a degree in nursing. Immediately after graduation she worked as an R.N. at Carney Hospital, and then moved to Cape Cod and continued her extensive nursing career at Cape Cod Hospital. Karen’s love and dedication to children was expressed through her work in the pediatric and maternity departments where she has worked for close to 40 years until her death.
Karen was a travel bug and would jump at the opportunity to explore new places near and far, sometimes at a moment’s notice. She loved the Red Sox and Celtics, and could often be found at games throughout the sports seasons. Karen was a talented tap dancer, trained as a toddler and performing semi-professionally on Cape Cod in many stage shows. On her time off, you could find Karen on some of her favorite beaches on Cape Cod and Florida, or playing tennis. Most of all, Karen loved her extended family and hundreds of friends. Her life was full of things to do and people to see. Karen also loved her two dogs, Lola and Capri.
A Funeral Mass is planned for 11:30am on Thursday, June 7th at Our Lady of the Assumption Church, 76 Wianno Ave. Osterville, MA. Burial will be private.
Donations in Karen’s memory may be made to Cape Cod Hospital Maternity and VNA Hospice, c/o Cape Cod Healthcare Foundation, P.O. Box 370, Hyannis, MA 02601.
