She was born March 27, 1952 in Belmont, WI the daughter of Harvey and Eileen (Richards) Speth. Jolante was born and raised in Belmont where she graduated from Belmont High School in 1970. In 1971, she moved to Darlington where she met the love of her life Jerry I. Olson. They were united in marriage on March 10, 1973 at Grace Lutheran Church in Darlington. Jolante worked as a bookkeeper for Darlington FS and Hallada Motors in Dodgeville, WI. In 1997, she was hired as Lafayette County’s Fair Secretary where she worked until her health issues would no longer allow her to work, retiring on May 12, 2019.
