Obituary for Beth Rosalie Stockwell Olson

Beth Rosalie Stockwell Olson passed into her Lord’s Presence on January 1, 2019 in Bella Vista, Arkansas where she and Ted, her husband of 67 years lived after retirement.
Beth was born on August 21,1921 on her family’s farm in Manhattan, Kansas to Ethel Leota Webster Stockwell and Frank Allen Stockwell. She enjoyed telling her suburban raised children of the fun and work growing up on a farm. A favorite chore of Beth’s and older sister, Alice was riding their pony, Bonny, up the hill behind their house to round up the dairy cows from the pasture. Also she told of the adventures of gathering eggs and finding a black snake, full of hen eggs in a nest.
After graduating from Manhattan High Beth went on to attend and graduate from Kansas State University with a degree in Home Economics. While attending she was a member of the KSU Rifle Team. During her time at KSU Beth had an exciting trip to Washington D.C. and New York City. At Washington D.C. Beth was privileged to spend an evening with Reverend Peter and Catharine Marshall. Peter was the Chaplain of the US Senate at the time. While in New York Beth celebrated New Year’s Eve in Time’s Square.
After graduating from KSU Beth became a County Home Extension agent for Wyandotte County, KS.
Beth and Ted were the first couple to be married in Kansas State’s newly constructed Danforth Chapel on October 29,1949.
While living in Platte Woods and Weatherby Lake, Missouri, Beth was the Food Service Director of the Park Hill School District.
After retirement Beth and Ted enjoyed traveling via motor home for 10 years around the country for the ministry organization, Mobile Missionary Assistance Program. They helped with construction projects at youth camps and church organizations. Beth often provided beautifully lettered signs where needed. While living in Bella Vista Beth and Ted valued their memberships in Abundant Life Ministries and The Village Bible Church.
Beth is survived by daughter JoAnn (Lionel) Helweg, sons Bill (Abby) and James Olson, grandchildren: Nathan (Maria) Helweg, Heather Helweg, Laura Helweg, Alexandra Olson and Teddy Olson and three great grandsons, Corbin, Lars and Beckett Helweg.
