Evalynn Linnea Olson, known to all as “Linnea”, died at the age of 61 on Monday, November 15, 2021. She was a mother, loved by family and friends for her vast artistic mind and warrior spirit, as well as a fierce advocate and blogger for the cancer community while living with lung cancer for 17 years. Linnea is survived by her three wonderful children, Jemesii Delande and Peter Duff of the greater Boston, MA area and August Kaan of Toledo, OH.
A celebration of her extraordinary life will be held on Friday, December 3, 2021 from 6PM – 9PM at Maria’s Restaurant - Galleria Banquet Room, 85 Essex Street, Haverhill, MA. Out of an abundance of caution for family and fellow guests, attendees must be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 and wear masks. Donations in Linnea’s honor can be made to LUNGstrong.org (which will be directed to MGH lung cancer research), LUNGevity.org or ICRF.org.
Linnea's nearby art studio will also be open for viewing from 7 pm to 9 pm.
