December 23, 1914 ~ October 23, 2011

Eino E. Juola, a 65-year resident of Clark County, died Oct. 23 after a short illness at the age of 96. He was preceded in death by his wife, Irene; son, John; and daughter-in-law, Kathy A. Juola.

He was born on the island of Hailuoto, Finland into a fishing family, the fifth of eleven children. He came to the United States in 1945 through Ellis Island and quickly loved his new home and his future wife, Irene. He was a naturalized citizen and never missed voting in an election.

Eino picked up languages easily. As boatswain's mate on one ship he had to communicate in seventeen different languages. Always eager to relate a story, Eino could talk for hours about his hunting and fishing trips, his adventures as a merchant marine, and his time spent fighting in the Finnish Winter War.

Eino loved to cook-especially salmon. He and Irene hosted many wild game dinners and enjoyed entertaining at home and at their cabin in Cougar.

Eino owned a painting business for over 30 years and kept busy in retirement. In his later years he always planned one special thing to do or look forward to each day. "Live to learn" he often said. Those around him learned a lot from him.

Eino was a member of the Finnish Messiah Lutheran Church and the Kalevala Brotherhood. [United Finnish Kaleva Brothers and Sisters / Yhdistyneet Suomalaiset Kaleva Veljet Ja Sisaret-Liitto]

Eino is survived by his son, George; grandson, Brian; granddaughter, Amy; daughter-in-law, Judy; granddaughter, Kathy C.; sister, Martta Haataja of Oulu, Finland; and numerous nieces and nephews.
