Shirley June Olsen a022 I [W;M;gM] was an average baby, born on Tuesday 10th. June 1941 (1941 2nd quarter, Croydon, folio 2a page 1341), but was very thin as a child, which was the way I stayed until I married. I disliked school, because of teasing. In my teens I had to go a health school, somewhere near Reading. When I was 15 years old I found Jesus at Robins Mission (London). After leaving school I worked at Gestetners until I was 24 years old. I then studied for two years at Moorlands Bible College. I moved to Exmouth, Devon, with my parents, and it was there that I met a021 John Olsen. We married on 19th August 1972 (1972 3rd quarter, Devon C, folio 7a page 1142). From October 1967 to January 1969 I worked at Stoke Lyne Hospital for handicapped children. I spent two years there as an assistant nurse caring for mentally disabled children from 5 to 15 years. I was encouraged to do my S.E.N. (State Enroled Nurse) which I did from Exmouth Hospital from January 1969 and passing in December 1971. Part of my training was at Exeter RD & E hospital where I did my children's orthopaedics, theatre training, caring for the elderly and 3 months training with the district nurse. From February 1971 to June 1972 I returned to Stoke Lyne Hospital. From June 1972 to March 1973 I worked as a Silver Waitress at the Imperial Hotel in Exmouth. In March 1973 we moved to Tavistock and initially I had a job making soldering irons. On 22/02/1974 our first son, a031 John Christian Olsen was born. From October 1974 to February 1988 I worked at Chollacot Nursing Home in Tavistock. I was in charge of four assistants and was able to dispense drugs. On 28/08/1976 our second son, a041 Thurstan Richard Olsen was born. For 5 years I worked at the weekends, but changed to 3 nights a week for 8 years once my boys were of school age. On 15/03/1988 we moved into Horbury Bridge Post Office, which was a subpostoffice, corner shop and sandwich takeaway. During our time in the Post office I was catering manageress in charge of the kitchen and preparation of the sandwiches. During 1990/1991 I had major surgery with an hysterectomy and ovariectomy. During 1995/1996 I had surgery again, this time for a cholecystectomy (removal of gall bladder). From October 2000 to September 2001 as well as working in the Post office I returned to nursing and worked as a care assistant at Snapethorpe Nursing Home. Whilst there I completed and passed my Return To Practice certificate. In 2002 we managed at last to sell the Post office, so we moved to a new house in Horbury. In 2004 I developed appendicitis and had an appendicectomy. Apart from baby sitting and normal housekeeping duties, I am now retired.
In June 2011 I celebrated my 70th birthday. John gave me a surprise, although I knew about it, party in the Ship Inn. It was a good and joyous time with family friends and neighbours.
On 19/08/2012, John and I celebrated our ruby wedding, 40 years. We renewed our wedding vows during a party held in our garden on 11/08/2012. Ian and Julie Nundy, our church pastors, officiated. It was a brilliant day with family, friends, and neighbours. We bought two gazebos. Jack and Jackie played the music for us. Jackie and John both gave us a speech.
