Odile Arnita Amo Wollum, age 90, passed peacefully from this life on March 11, 2015. She was born February 23, 1925 to Caroline "Lena" and Albert Amo on a farm near Medford, Wisconsin and was married to Henry M. Wollum on December 24, 1946

Odile made lifelong friends wherever she and Henry lived; her focus was always on her family, friends, and church.

Odile was a member of the Louisville United Methodist Church, the Louisville Art Association, and the PEO Sisterhood. She was a talented artist, and a fantastic baker. She lived with dignity, courage, and a commitment to sharing her best with every person she met. When asked how she would want to be remembered, she wrote this reply, "I loved my God and His son, Jesus dearly. I loved my husband, children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren with all my heart. And I always kept a full cookie jar!"

Odile is survived by her husband of 68 years; her children, Mary DeVerter (Jack DeVerter) of Spring Branch, Texas; Henry Wollum (Donna Erk) of Montrose, CO; James Wollum (Jill Hess) of Denver; CO, Don Wollum (Carole Chrvala) of Pittsboro, NC. She was a devoted and loving grandmother to Jack Jr., Jeff, and Mark DeVerter; Carla and Marshall Wollum; and Allie and Jamie Wollum. She was happy to get to know and love her great-grandchildren, Stephen, Benjamin, Caden, Morgan, Jake, and Rowdy.

She is also survived by two sisters, Inez Loetscher and Norma Reigert. She was predeceased by her sisters Mae Perkins, Lucille Etten, Fern Werner, Edythe Engel, and her brother Jim Amo.

A Celebration of Life service is scheduled for 2:00 pm on Sunday, May 24, 2015 at the Louisville United Methodist Church, 741 Jefferson Avenue, Louisville, CO. In lieu of flowers, the family suggests memorial gifts to the PEO Foundation. Information can be found online at peointernational.org.
