Obituary for Liviah Ann Oslund Olin Michaelis

On Monday, January 27, 2020, Liviah Ann Oslund Olin Michaelis slipped away peacefully in Coeur d’Alene at the age of 97.

Liviah was born in Moscow, ID on August 7, 1922 to Alex Hilmer and Anna Marie (Anderson) Oslund of Troy, ID. She grew up in Troy, the second of four children, attending the local school and graduating from Troy High School. She went on to attend Lewiston State Normal School and the University of Idaho graduating with a degree in Home Economics.

She met David Harry Olin at Lewiston Normal School and they were married in 1944. Harry’s career led them to live in many states across the country where they acquired enduring friendships. Upon return to Idaho, they made Coeur d’Alene their lasting home.

During those years she enjoyed North Idaho life: boating, fishing, huckleberry picking, oil painting, gardening, and especially the family camping trips to Priest Lake, ID. Golfing became one of her passions, and she was a member of the Women’s 9-Hole League, always proud to share her hole in one story. A lifelong accomplishment was her ability to sew. She sewed anything from baby clothes, to doll clothes, to wedding dresses.

After Harry’s death Liviah married Walter Michaelis. They enjoyed ten years together before his passing on January 4, 2008.

Liviah was a proud wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother. She used her many talents to enrich the lives of her family. She is survived by her children Kathy (Dave), Patti (Kip), Janet (Bill), David (Becky), 8 grandchildren, 4 great-grandchildren and Walt’s children Rod, Randy and Becky.

The family would like to thank the caregivers at North Star Assisted Living and Hospice of North Idaho for their loving attention. In lieu of flowers, the family suggests a donation to Hospice of North Idaho, 2290 W Prairie Avenue, Coeur d’Alene, ID.

There will be a graveside service Monday, February 3, 2020 at 11:00am at Dry Creek Cemetery, 1231 Dry Creek Road, Troy, ID.
