Olaf N. "Ole" Lewison, 87
Long-time Orland resident

Olaf N. "Ole" Lewison, 87, of Moses Lake, Washington died August 1, 1993. He was a former long-time resident of Orland.
Memorial services were held Aug. 3 at 2 p.m. at Moses Lake with Rev. Rollin Swanson officiating. There will be a memorial church service at the Orland First Lutheran Church later this month.
Mr. Lewison was born Oct.0, 1907 at Adams Minnesota. After graduating from high school there, he went to work on a cattle ranch in Montana, later returning to Adams to work on the family farm. He drove hay trucks and transported hogs to market, prior to taking over the family farming operation.
On Jan. 25, 1935 he married Charlotte A. Wilbrecht, also of Adams. They moved to Orland in 1946.
Working for the Orland Unit Water Users, Mr. Lewison was a ditch rider until transferring to Quincy, Washington in 1954. He remained in Quincy until 1963 when he returned to Orland to work as a dam tender for the Army Corps of Engineers. Retiring in the mid 1970s, he lived in Orland until moving to Moses Lake in 1991.
He had been an active member of the First Lutheran Church in Orland. After retiring he became a member of the Airstream Club and enjoyed trailer traveling. He especially liked fishing, reading and visiting with old friends.
On Oct. 7, 1992, Mr. Lewison was preceded in death by his wife, Charlotte.
He is survived by two sons Gordon Lewison of Seattle and Rodney Lewison of Moses Lake; two sisters, Juliaetta Iverson of LeRoy, Minnesota and Blanche Wofe of Austin, Minnesota and two grandsons.
Those desiring to do so may make memorial donations in his name to the First Lutheran Church of Orland or the charity of their choice.
