Jerome M. Solland
Jerome Mervin Solland was born in Mansfield township January 9, 1932 to Jens and May Solland. Graduated from a country school in Emmons, where he walked up the hill both ways in 5 feet of snow with no shoes. Jerome served in the US Army as a Corporal during the Korean War. Jerome loved doing things outside like gardening, camping, many little projects and was the handiest man we knew. There wasn’t anything he couldn’t do, he always said he’s a jack of all trades but master of none. Something he excelled at was telling jokes, he had a joke for every occasion that was sure to make you laugh. Jerome died on October 3, 2020. He left a void in all of our hearts but will be filled with the love he had for us all and all the memories we have of him. Jerome is preceded in death by his wife Sharlene Solland (Anderson), father Jens Solland and, his mother May Blair; brothers: Marvin, Orin, Donald and Ralph.
He is survived by his brother Judean and his sisters: Mavis and Gloria; sons: Gary, Terry, Michael and Danny and his daughters Lisa and Sharon; grand kids: Vicki, Troy, Tia, Abbey, Cary, Megan, Brooke, Jessica, Mandra, Amy, Levi, Zane, Shaylea, Samantha and multiple great grandkids. Visitation will be from 1:00 P.M. – 3:00 P.M. on Saturday, October 17 at Bonnerup Funeral Service, Albert Lea. Due to COVID-19 there will not be a Celebration of Life Service.
