Lonnie Olson (Mrs. Bill Olson) passed away quietly and before her time, in Haines City, Fla. late last month. Lonnie was a good friend and wonderful neighbor to many of us in the Solon area. While she was gone before most of us knew the details and could express our sympathy, we have found many of us would like to have some kind of memorial for her in lieu of flowers. Sadly, the Olson’s lost their oldest son, Tim, some years back, and a tree was planted in his honor near the School’s Sports Center. In visiting with some of her friends in the area, they thought it might be appropriate, if possible, to place another tree close to her beloved son’s, or some other memorial that would leave an imprint of what a generous and much loved friend she was to so many of us over the years. Lonnie is survived by husband, Bill, daughter Missy, and sons Grant and Keith.
