Betty A. Solether
1928-2018

Betty Ann (Appelhof) Solether, 90, passed away December 16, 2018, at Independence Village in Aurora, Ohio, after a courageous battle with old age. Betty was born in 1928 to Ruth (Fitch) Appelhof and John Agnew Appelhof in Detroit, Michigan. She attended Denison University, where she met the love of her life, David Solether. The couple eloped to marry in 1947 and made their home in Chagrin Falls, where they raised their three children.

Betty lived in Chagrin Falls for 70 years, 36 years in her beloved downtown century home. She was first a devoted wife, mother, and homemaker, and enjoyed working in a variety of occupations throughout her life. She was a tireless community volunteer, and changed many lives with her exceptional compassion and wisdom.

Betty was preceded in death by her husband of 33 years, David C. Solether.

Betty is survived by her three children, Leslie Solether Jabaily of Loveland, CO; David Michael (Mike) Solether and wife Heidi, of Aurora, OH; Ann Louise (Ouisie) Grim and husband, Bill, of Athens, OH; eight grandchildren, 11 great grandchildren, niece Laurie Nalepa, and dear friend, Brit Gardiner, as well as scores of people whose lives she touched.

Cremation has been conducted. Memorial contributions may be made to Chagrin Falls Historical Society, P.O. Box 515, Chagrin Falls, OH 44022 or online at www.chagrinhistorical.org. A celebration of Betty's life will be held at a later date.
