Obituary

Edgar “Eddie” D. Olney, Sr., 85, of Spring Grove, peacefully passed away at home surrounded by family and friends, Sunday, October 17, 2021.  He was born April 20, 1936, in Storm Lake, Iowa, to the late LaVerne and Ruth (nee Banghart) Olney.

Eddie was a 1954 graduate of Rolfe Consolidated High School.  He went on to honorably serve in the Air Force, and had a successful, 42-year career with American Airlines.

He loved to fish and enjoyed watching sports—especially the Chicago Cubs, Bears, and Bulls, boating, spending time at his trailer in the Wisconsin Dells, and watching TV.

Survivors include his wife of five years and beloved companion of 15 years, Delia; children, Ronald Olney, Thomas Olney, Laura (Scott) Bernard, and Diana Olney; grandchildren, Brandy, Jenny, Dean, Desiray, and Josh; and great-grandchildren, Giovanni, Lynorah, Benny, Ethan, Mariana, Brianna, Ava, and Olivia.

In addition to his parents, Eddie was preceded in death by his son, Edgar “Eddie” D. Olney, Jr.; and sister, Janet Olney.
