Judith Olson was born the daughter of Raymond and Eleanor (McKeag) Olson on January 4, 1943 in Grinnell, Iowa. She was raised in Grinnell and graduated from Grinnell High School in 1961.

Judith married Rick Jameson in 1967 and later married Russell Helms in 1982. She was employed by the CIA in 1964. Later she worked as an office manager for various companies including Dressler Consulting Engineering, Cabinet Crafters, and Bradford Properties.

There were three things Judith enjoyed more than anything. The first was spending time with her grandchild Grace. The second was adopting troubled dogs. The third was her garden. She continued to garden against the doctor’s orders.
