Celebration of Life 5/22 Slideshow

On May 7, 2022 we had a Cerebration of Life, celebrating Ruth Olsen (June 1, 1932 – February 14, 2022). The event was held at First Plymouth Church in Lincoln, NE. The slideshow we had from the 85th birthday party was modified, added-to, and reorganized to make a new slideshow. The slideshow was shown in Mayflower Hall at the informal gatherings at the church before and after the Cerebration of Life service.

The PowerPoint Slideshow has 400+ pictures. If you are looking for particular slides, the following may help.
