FUNERAL DETAILS


 

Elaine R. Soller, PsyD



Elaine R. Soller, PsyD, 86, of West Bloomfield, Michigan, died on 30 May 2020.

Family members include:
Cherished mother of Marc (Cathy) Soller, Daniel (Jay Ostahowski), Soller, and Cheryl (Terry) Petz. Proud grandmother of Kaylin (Brady) Slage, Eric Soller, Kyle Johnson, Ben Johnson, and Shawna (Shawn) Ansley. Adoring great-grandmother of Griffin and Azaleah Ansley. Devoted daughter of the late Anne R. and the late Samuel Klein. Loving sister of the late Robert Klein.

Born in Philadelphia in 1933, at a young age she and her family moved to Detroit and built a home on Cherrylawn. As a teen, she was thrilled to attend Cass Tech (not minding the multiple busses to get there). She took classes in art history, fashion illustration, etc. She played the violin, the piano and cello; always having a joy of classical music.

After getting married and having three children, moving to Southfield, and getting the kids in school, she returned to school for clinical psychology at Wayne. Before completing her doctorate, she moved to Boca Raton and finished her degree. Coming back home to Southfield, she built a thriving practice.

She then decided to build a home in Ann Arbor, where she continued her practice for the next 20 years. Wanting to be closer to her children, she moved to West Bloomfield. In every home she had an art studio, where she continued her oil painting, mostly abstract oil on canvas.

She was known for her warm bright smile, appreciation of the beauty in the world, always accepting people for who they are, being someone who was easy to talk to, and of course the red sports car! She will be missed.

There will be a memorial service scheduled at a later date.
