Laila T. Alholinna

Died Jan. 22, 2019


Laila Tuulikki Alholinna, 77, of Au Gres, formerly of Westland and Finland, passed away at home Jan. 22, 2019.

Laila was born July 11, 1941, to the late Niilo and Toini Sievinen in Finland. Laila grew up in Finland and married Esko Pertti Alholinna on New Year’s Eve 1961. Two weeks later they moved to the United States. She enjoyed spending time outdoors with her husband and family — camping, boating, fishing, hunting, skiing and shoveling snow were among her favorites. Laila also loved spending time with her six grandchildren.

Laila is survived by her husband, Esko; daughter, Eila Alholinna-Meusling of Dade City, Fla.; son, Matti Alholinna of Westland; grandchildren, Katie Lee (Meusling) Palm, Olin Meusling, Rachael Alholinna, Natalie (Meusling) Menato, Aaron Alholinna and Bradley Alholinna. Laila is also survived by her sister, Mirja Ahlberg, and her brother, Pentti Sievinen, both of Finland.

According to Laila’s wishes, cremation has taken place. A private family celebration of Laila’s life will be held at a later date. Funeral arrangements have been entrusted to the Lee-Ramsay Funeral Home Standish Chapel.
