Lonie Marie Wuolle, 72, of Kellogg, Idaho, passed away Sept. 13, 2023, at the Schneidmiller Hospice House in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho. Lonie was born April 8, 1951, in Coeur d’Alene, a daughter of the late Matt and Pat (Miller) Wuolle. She was raised in Cataldo, Idaho, the oldest of five brothers and two sisters, and made it known that she was the boss.

Lonie graduated from Kellogg High School, Class of 1969, and went on to become a preschool teacher in Coeur d’Alene. She then moved back to Kellogg, where she worked for the Kellogg Chamber of Commerce and also as a bartender.

She was a funny and feisty sister. When Lonie’s COPD made working impossible, she spent her time reading, crafting, cooking and crocheting and excelled in them all. The little ones at her apartment complex all received crocheted holders for their freeze pops. She also made hats for anyone who needed one and blankets for the new babies.

In addition to her parents, she is preceded in death by a brother, Doug Wuolle; sister-in-law Roma Wuolle and brother-in-law Larry Ross.

Survivors include her son, Dane Wuolle, whom she relied on; and her grandson, Adam, whom she spoiled and loved so very much. Lonie is also survived by six siblings, Karen Ross, Mike Wuolle, Wayne (Lorraine) Wuolle, David (Veronica) Wuolle, Craig (Jamie) Wuolle, and Nancy (Frank) Bates; and numerous aunts, nieces and nephews.

Everyone she met all have a “Lonie” story or had been “Lonied.” We all loved her immensely and will miss having her in our lives.

Cremation has taken place and no services are planned at this time. Memories of Lonie and messages of condolence may be shared with her family online at Shoshone Funeral Service, Kellogg, is assisting the Wuolle family with arrangements.
