CHARLOTTE (LONNIE) E. TAILFORD
Charlotte (Lonnie) E. Tailford passed into the hands of the Lord on Friday, December 13, 2019, at the age of 80. She was born January 8, 1939, in Weirton, West Virginia, to John and Susan Leonard, who preceded her.
Lonnie served as the president of Soltech Corporation until its closing. She was a life-long resident of the Shoreland community and had fond memories of frequenting the Ottawa River area, including Riverview Yacht Club and the Turtle Club.
She is remembered by many as a beautiful person, inside and out, and friends nicknamed her Lonnie because she resembled Lonnie Anderson.
She is survived by sons, Daniel (Christine) Miller and Dennis Miller; grandchildren, Dustin (Emily), Chelsea, Derek, Patrick and James Miller; great-grandchildren, Addison Rauch-Miller, Dex and Juniper Miller; brother, David Leonard, Whittier, California, and special cousin, Ronald Kachinko, Phoenix, Arizona. She is preceded in death by her husband, Lewis Tailford, and brother, Robert Leonard.
Arrangements will be private. A celebration of Lonnie’s life will be held in the spring when the sun shines on the Ottawa River.
