Stanley Lawrence Olds ’46, October 7, 2010, in Worcester, Massachusetts, following a lengthy illness. Stanley received a BA from Reed in mathematics and an MS from the State University of Iowa in actuary science, graduating Phi Beta Kappa. For over 30 years, he was an actuary for State Mutual Life Assurance Company; he retired in 1989. In retirement, he was a volunteer math tutor for at-need students at South High Community School in Worcester. He was a member of Temple Emanuel and cofounder and president of the Jewish Service Center for Older Adults. In his public obituary, we read: “He was the consummate community volunteer and will be sadly missed by all who knew him.” Survivors include his wife of 58 years, Rosalie Lasker Olds; a son and two daughters; four grandchildren; and a brother.
