Phyllis R. Solberg, 82, 02/27/39- 03/16/21. Phyllis passed away peacefully in her home on March 16, 2021. Preceded in death by her parents, James and Velma Oliver (Moore), sisters; Irene Killius and Jean Warbington, and loving husband of 60 years, Arthur Jon Solberg. She is survived by her four children; Lisa Mackey (Doug), Lora Solberg, Jon Solberg, Mari-Lynn Hay (Mark) and grandsons. Phyllis was born in Blue Diamond, Ky. Her family later migrated to Madison Heights, Michigan for new opportunities. Phyllis graduated from Madison Heights High School in 1957, where she met and fell in love with Jon Solberg. In 1973, she and Jon moved to Holly, Michigan, calling it their home for the rest of their lives. In retirement, they wintered in Old Town, Florida. Some of her happiest memories were from those years spent on the Suwannee River. She retired from Holly Schools. Her favorite part of her job was working with the children with special needs. She had a connection to the students, and loved them dearly. She spent many years in the district as the President of her AFSCME Union Local. She was a stalwart President with a passion for helping all of the local members. Phyllis loved being a grandma. Her grandsons were her pride and joy. Sometimes too, the simpler things in life brought her joy. A Frosty, a slice of birthday cake, or even a Koegel bologna sandwich were enough to make her day. In lieu of flowers, those who wish remember Phyllis in a special way may send memorial contribution to: Grace Missionary Baptist Church/878 Milford Road/Holly, Michigan 48442 A private burial will take place at a later date.
