After college, Soluna spent 21 years as a teacher, coach, and cheerleading sponsor. With her kind heart, infectious smile, and love for her students, Soluna gained the utmost respect from all of her students she was blessed to teach and coach. Touching countless lives and families. Her caring heart touched every individual she came into contact with and was always helping others and bringing joy to their lives.
When Soluna wasn’t working, she was living life to the fullest. She loved spending time with her family and friends at barbeques, lounging in the pool, watching college football, stockshows, or just simply sitting around and visiting. She was always having fun and truly knew how to live. Soluna loved her family very much and was happiest when she surrounded herself with them.
