Her legacy
Holly Jean  
Holly was a beautiful woman.  One of her main goals was to help other people. She was a successful professional in the commercial real estate division of Johnson Controls located in Milwaukee WI, were she had relocated to in May of 2006. She was a single woman, lived by herself and  had no children- though she looked forward to finding someone to share her life with. She had many friends and family who loved her and relied on her compassionate nature. She loved her friends and family and always put others ahead of herself. She was a devoted christian and prayed daily. She loved to write and had started a novel-she loved going for walks, fishing, music and sports. She did not like TV but would watch movies-her favorite at the time of her death was Elizabethtown. She enjoyed being with people-she was an intelligent-graceful-and lovingyoung woman.

On fri morning around 2:30 am on Dec 8th 2006 she was found  on her bedroom  floor suffering from smoke inhalation. A fire had started in her couch and smoldered.The paramedics tried to resusatate her with no success We will never know how the fire  started only that she had awoke and tried to get out. Her kitty Indiana  also perished in the fire.

She will be missed by many- but forgotten by few-
