Nancy D. Olsen, 87, of Yorba Linda, California passed away on June 17, 2022. Nancy was born on August 22, 1934, to Robert Mullendore Porter and Clarabelle Porter (Conner) of Edinburgh, Indiana. Nancy graduated from UCLA in 1956, highest honors, with a degree in Sociology. Nancy went on to earn a degree in Nursing and worked as a Registered Nurse in the ICU and CCU departments of Kaiser Permanente until her retirement. Nance was a passionate caregiver and very well liked and highly respected by all of her patients and co-workers. Nancy was also a passionate horse woman. She purchased her first horse when she was 16 years old with savings she had from working odd jobs. With a little money in her pocket and a WHOLE lot of begging her Father, Nancy purchased her first horse Knight. Knight was a tall beautiful shiny black gelding that Nancy rode proudly for more than 30 years! Nancy spent almost her entire life in company of her beloved horses. She shared this passion with her daughter Karen, and they spent many years at horse shows, trail riding and horse camping together. In fact, on one of those horse camping trips, Nancy fell for the love of her life Donald (Don) Olsen, also an avid horseman. Nancy and Don spent years traveling the West together with their faithful steeds, until Don preceded his beloved Nancy in death in 2000. Nancy’s roots are set deep in the beautiful family homestead of Indiana. Where she always longed to live, and in fact did for a few short years. Nancy will return to Indiana to be buried next to her Mother and Father at the Rest Haven Cemetery in Edinburgh, Indiana. Arrangements made by Eskew-Eaton Funeral Home in Edinburgh, Indiana
