Brooke was born June 22, 1989, in Waconia, beloved daughter to Julie Morrow and Scott Olson.

A loving and creative soul, Brooke was always ready for anything, and happiest when she was with friends, listening to music, creating art, and spending time with her cat, Oliver. She had a most beautiful spirit that could light up your soul.

Brooke graduated from Delano High School in 2007. She then went on to study at the University of Minnesota, where she majored in sociology and Spanish, graduating in 2018. While attending college, Brooke had the opportunity to study at the University of Hawaii, where she spent her free time enjoying the ocean and surfing.

Upon graduation, Brooke was passionate about her art business, Sacred Stone.

What she wanted more than anything else was for people to feel loved, accepted, and empowered, and for this world to be a place of love and kindness. Brooke will always be remembered for her courage and strength through difficult times, and though her life ended too soon, we know that she is at rest and without pain now.

Brooke is survived and sorely missed by her mother, Julie (Terry) Morrow of Buffalo; her father, Scott (Denise) Olson of Waverly; brothers Mitch (Lisa) Olson of Waconia, and Matt (Jenny) Olson of Maple Grove; nieces and nephew Anna Olson, Audrie Olson, Ian Olson, and Kenna Olson; grandparents, Carol Brausen of Buffalo, Gary and Bethel Olson of Waverly, and Donna Schnell of Delano; along with many other close relatives.

She was preceded in death by her great-grandparents, Lillian and George Olson, Jenny and Helmer Krugerud, Florence and Ervin Cardinal, Emma and Albert Graunke, and Marcy and Larry Brausen; grandpa Garry Brausen; and aunt Jenna LeLoup.
