Odile A. Toraason


Odile Anita Toraason, 88, of rural Blair, died Tuesday, December 20, 2022, at her home.

Odile was born January 9, 1934, in Whitehall, to Albert and Ruth (Dahl) Toraason of Blair. She graduated from Blair High School. While in school, she played in a piano recital and was the captain of one of the high school volleyball teams. After high school, Odile went to Downey, IL, and completed nurse’s training to become a registered nurse. She worked at the Tomah VA Medical Center prior to her retirement.

Odile and other retired nurses from the Tomah VA Medical Center would get together the last Thursday of every month for lunch which was something she always looked forward to. Odile enjoyed knitting and made several Christmas stockings that have been cherished and will continue to be. She had a laugh that would warm your heart.

Odile is survived by several cousins and many friends.

In addition to her parents, Odile was preceded in death by her brother, Gale Toraason.

In honoring Odile’s wishes, there will be no funeral service. She also did not want any cards being sent. If you would like to honor Odile, please make a donation to the Childhood Leukemia Foundation, the Salvation Army or the charity of your choice.

Jack Funeral Home in Blair is assisting the family with arrangements.
