Sad News – Rachael Solem

The Harvard Square Business Association is devastated to announce the passing of our dear colleague and friend, Rachael Solem. The announcement below was shared by Rachael’s Daughter, Briana Pearson.
There is no good way to share this news with all who knew her and loved her.

Earlier this week my mom passed away from what we believe was a pulmonary embolism. We are all in shock and can not make sense of this impossible loss to the family, her friends ~both near and far and of course the strong business circles she spent countless hours supporting.We are gathering ourselves as we figure out the next steps to handle all of the practical tasks that come with such a sudden and devastating loss. We will reach out again once we have a plan for a memorial or as she would have wanted, a celebration of life. 

In the meantime, hold your loved ones close. She was an incredible mother, grandmother, colleague and friend and we are still trying to absorb the immensity and heartbreak of this loss. The world is smaller without her.
