Holly welcomed her beautiful daughter, Marissah in 1995, who later bore Holly’s two grandchildren. These three were the light, joy, and loves of Holly’s life. On any given day, Holly could be found spending quality time with her grandchildren helping them learn and grow, playing with them at the park, taking them for ice cream treats, or telling them silly jokes and capturing joyful moments. Aside from the daily care-taking of her family and grandchildren, Holly was a fiercely loyal friend, passionate about the legal and justice system, and fighting for equal and fair treatment of all. Holly was an advocate and volunteer. Holly understood people, she united and related to persons from all walks of life. She blessed us with unique gifts to bridge wide divides with warmth, wit, and laughter. Holly was quick to remind us we all “Bleed the Same,” and this was one of her greatest gifts. Holly was always giving whatever she had to help others in their darkest times of need; whether it was a ride, phone call & a shoulder to cry on, a good laugh like no other, or offering her time to help resolve unresolved cases for families. She often took the lead to speak for families in need, and galvanized community support on their behalf. Holly had dreams and was pursuing volunteer work related to developing her skills. Holly was an extraordinary blessing to so many, she will be missed tremendously. Please honor and celebrate her, by treating people with her beautiful essence and kindness in mind.
