Lonna Marie Calhoun Obituary
Lonna Maria Calhoun
August 13, 1947- February 26, 2018

We are saddened by the loss of Lonna Maria Calhoun, who passed away peacefully and surrounded by loved ones. Born in La Habra, she was the eldest of four siblings and many cousins. Lonna was not only beautiful, but also enterprising and innovative, a natural leader who honed this talent throughout her storied life. Ever the entrepreneur, she excelled in all efforts and re-invented herself countless times in her life and careers. She met her husband of 40 years, Sam, while working at the Palos Verdes Health Spa, which he owned. Together, they formed a loving and enduring partnership, running successive businesses and raising a family.

Lonna was committed throughout her life to fitness and health, becoming an international name in Aerobics. She loved to walk the trails of Palos Verdes and San Pedro. She enjoyed community involvement throughout her 39 years living in the South Bay, most recently as co-founder the emergency preparedness nonprofit, COPE-Preparedness.

She was a passionate Leo and eternal optimist; beloved, vibrant, and full of life. Her loss is felt deeply by her many dear friends, three siblings and their spouses (Phillip Baiocchi, Alan and Lisa Baiocchi, Laura and Mark Stratton), and her two children and their spouses (Andrea and Jeff Browning, Carter and Meghan Calhoun). Lonna's proudest chapter was becoming "Nonna" to her grandchildren, Grayson and Claire. She beamed with love and pride at their every milestone. She left us all too soon.

Lonna's Celebration of Life will be held on March 11th at 11AM, at The Plaza and Cabrillo Marina, 2965 Via Cabrillo Marina, San Pedro, 90731. Please sign the guest book, www.dailybreeze.com/obits.
