Onnolee graduated from Wapakoneta Blume High School, where she met and later married the love of her life. She attended Bluffton College as a music major and subsequently taught in Ansonia, Ohio, before moving to Canal Winchester, where she and Earl lived for many years and raised their family. She cherished the students and colleagues she spent her days and years with as a teacher at Canal Winchester Elementary. Onn continued her education at The Ohio State University and was an avid Buckeyes fan. She loved her Woodsview Drive neighbors, her bridge club, her church family at Faith UMC, and the many dear friends made along the way. As she neared the end of this life, her wonderful caregivers held a special place in her heart. Onnolee treasured time with family and was a devoted wife, mother and grandmother. In keeping with her wishes, there will be a private graveside service. A memorial celebration will be held at a later date. In remembrance of Onnolee’s life, those who wish may make a contribution in her name to Faith United Methodist Church, 15 West Columbus St. Canal Winchester, OH 43110 or a charity of one’s choice.
