Karen Sue Olnhausen, age 60 of Toledo, left us on September 1, 2017 to fly with the angels. She passed away peacefully surrounded by her loving family at Ebeid Hospice in Sylvania, Ohio, after an extended illness. Karen was born in Toledo, Ohio on June 10, 1957 to Frederick “Ted” and Joan (Hettle) Olnhausen. She graduated from Rosary Cathedral Grade School and Central Catholic High School. Following high school, she attended Owens to complete her Registered Nursing certificate, graduated from University of Toledo with her BSN and from The Medical College of Ohio with her MSN.
Over Karen’s 39-year career as a Nurse, Advanced Practice Nurse, and Clinical Nurse Specialist in Child and Adolescent Psychiatric and Mental Health Nursing, her focus was on helping children and families with psychiatric and substance use disorders. In the 1980s, she was the Head Nurse of the Adolescent Psychiatric Services of St. Vincent Medical Center, and in the 1990s, Karen planned, developed, and implemented the Child and Adolescent Crisis Services for youth in Lucas County. In 1999, Karen co-authored an article on Adolescent Self-Esteem in Nursing Science Quarterly. In 2000, Karen joined the Mental Health and Recovery Services Board of Lucas County as the Director of Youth Services, and later, the Director of Programs and Services. She was a staunch advocate for youth and was often sought out to serve on local and statewide committees. Karen was known as both practical and empathetic in the most challenging situations, and built lasting relationships with her peers. Her efforts to improve the lives of Lucas County residents can be found in the design of services provided to youth in the Juvenile Court, Children Services and at the Family and Children First Council. Through her leadership as an administrator, she facilitated the development of the Mental Health Youth Task Force, Behavioral Health/Juvenile Justice Initiative, Wrap Around, Multi-Systemic Therapy, and many other supportive services for youth and families. Later in her career, Karen also became responsible for the oversight of adult treatment and support services in Lucas County but never strayed far from her roots as a self-proclaimed “kids” person. In 2017, she received the ‘Whatever It Takes’ award from the Multi-Systemic Therapy Services organization.
Family was the most important thing in Karen’s life. She was a devoted and loving daughter, sister and aunt who made it a point to attend as many of her nieces’ and nephews’ shows, concerts and sporting events as possible. Karen loved any excuse to get family and friends together. She enjoyed celebrating Halloween, Christmas or just getting together to watch U of M football with her brother who rooted for the team down south. One of the biggest highlights in her life was spending time on the east coast with her youngest brother Scott which turned into many vacations at her favorite spot Rehoboth Beach, DE. Preceding Karen in death were her father Frederick “Ted” and her sister Janet Marie.

Surviving are her loving mother, Joan; brothers: Fred (Debbie), Mark (Joanne), Jeff (Marcy) and Scott Olnhausen. Also surviving are many nieces and nephews; many great nieces and nephews; and her beloved cat Nora. She will be greatly missed by her close friends including many friends from grade school, high school and work.

At the age of 63, she started volunteering at the Mildred Bayer Clinic for the Homeless, in downtown Toledo. Their Ann helped with medical and dental patients for over 15 years and served as a Spanish language interpreter when needed.

Nova F. Dutridge
December/4/1926 - August/10/2016
Nova F. Dutridge passed away on August 10th, 2016 in Toledo, Ohio. A lifelong resident of Toledo she was born on December 4th, 1926 to Fred and Delcie (Wetzel) Duby. As a child, she loved growing up near the Anthony Wayne Trail and frequently visiting The Toledo Zoo; back then, the zoo did not charge admission, so she and her neighborhood friends used the park as a favorite spot to play. Her father Fred, worked for Railway Express as a delivery driver and would often “swing by the house” to amaze Nova and her friends with live animal deliveries on their way to the zoo. Nova had one older brother, Gordon “Sonny” Duby, and a younger sister Norene “Tootie” (Duby) Berry. Both of her siblings preceded her in death. She attended Libbey High School and worked in the catalogue department for Sears Department Store for many years.
Nova married the love of her life, William Dutridge, on July 18th, 1948. Of all the stories she loved to tell, the stories about grandpa were the ones that make her whole face light up in a smile. Together they raised their three sons: Michael (Judy), John (Deborah), and Steven (fiancé Cathy Torrez). He preceded her in death on March 5th, 1982. Her sons all survive her.
While working on the family genealogy, Nova’s granddaughter once asked “What were your greatest aspirations and dreams?” Having lost her own mother when she was only 8, Nova’s lifelong dream was to be able to raise a family and live long enough to meet and enjoy her grandchildren. The true lights of her life were her grandchildren: Melonie (Steven) Smith, Joshua (Beth) Dutridge, Valerie (Jim) Coulter, Krissy Dutridge, Melissa (Jay) Lohbauer, Todd Dutridge, Aaron (Tiffani) Dutridge, Ashley (Chad) Evearitt, Ashley Billings, and Brooke and Julia Dutridge. She was also a cherished “Gigi” by her great-grandchildren: Tapie and Tulpen Smith, Brenden and Gabrielle Dutridge, Zachary Dutridge, Gavin Lake, Ronan Coulter, Emma Lohbauer, and Chase and Dagny Dutridge. She also valued her relationship with her daughter-in-law, Karen Dutridge.
Grandma’s favorite memories were those where she was surrounded by her family. She would take all of her grandchildren on an annual trip to the Toledo Zoo, recalling her favorite memories there from childhood. She joined her sons and their families for a very large family vacation (in one cottage!) every summer at Devil’s Lake, Michigan. The tradition of family trips to the lake were started by Nova and Bill when their boys were young and the trips continued until all of her grandchildren were grown. She also took annual trips to Tucson, Arizona to visit her lifelong best friend, Pat Griesemer.
We are all dearly missing the matriarch of our family. We can’t help but smile when we think about you in your pink chair in the living room, always ready with a smile and a hug for whoever stopped in to visit. We hope the legacy you left all of us in the love you shared fulfilled your dreams as a mother and grandmother. We hope you can see the smiles through our tears as we remember the unforgettable warmth you brought into all of our lives.

The family suggests memorial contributions to The Toledo Zoo.
