Tiffany Ann Geldard Olson, 44, passed away Saturday, January 19, 2019 at Benefis Hospital in Great Falls, Montana, after suffering a heart attack.

Tiffany was born October 1, 1974, to Charles and Linda (Leaf) Geldard. Chuck and Linda knew that their third daughter, Tiffany, completed the family. She was her Daddy's right-hand girl and their time together fostered her love for adventure. One of these adventures included countless hours spent in the dojo where she achieved the rank of black belt in Kenpo Karate. Each year they would take a special family vacation and countless treasured memories were made.

She was raised and educated in Havre, attending St. Jude Thaddeus School and graduating from Havre High School in 1993. Tiffany then went on to obtain her certified nursing assistant certificate. She spent the rest of her life providing compassionate care for others, most recently at the Havre Day Activity Center. She loved the clients there and treated them like her own family.

On New Year's Eve 25 years ago she met her love, Marty. A few years later in the spring of 1996 the joy of their life, Allisa Marie, was born. As a family they enjoyed all that the Montana outdoors had to offer including camping, fishing, and swimming at Beaver Creek Park. She loved any opportunity to have her family together and had a special love for nieces and nephews.

Tiffany's love for animals began when she was young. Her family had a menagerie of animals including: dogs, cats, fish, guinea pigs, hamsters and even pet raccoons. She continued to rescue animals throughout her life.

Tiffany is survived by her husband, Marty Olson; her daughter, Allisa Olson (Trè Bisel); her mother, Linda Geldard; sister Lexie (Nate) Hoines. sister Corina (Wes) Carlson; sister-in-law, Marla (Jay) Shuland; brother-in-law, Matt (Sandy) Olson; numerous nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles, cousins and friends.

She was preceded in death by her father, Charles "Chop" Geldard in 2010, and her maternal and paternal grandparents.
