How do you properly memorialize a woman like Holly Kelsch? If you first met Holly your impression might be a shy and reserved woman. But to the rest of us that had the privilege of growing up with and/or getting to know Holly she was so much more!

She was an amazing mother, grandmother, sister, aunt, and friend. She loved the holidays with her family and was fond of sewing and crafts. At Christmas she was the mastermind of all the holiday games, keeping all of us laughing and crying from all of the fun. Always creating fun and unique costumes for her children and friends at Halloween. She always had a shoulder for children to lean on. Her kindness did not stop at her own children, as an aunt she raised the bar for every parent. Planning outings, craft sessions, and games for everyone she loved. Leaving a lasting impression on anyone that got to know her. She will be dearly missed and never forgotten.

Survived in marriage to Morris K Kelsch, loving husband and partner of 22 years, a blended family of 13 amazing children, one grand daughter, and two soon to be grandchildren, including her biological children Hudson, Wallace, Carter, and Holly. Best friend and sister Hazel Kelsch, as well as parents James M Kelsch and Marian B Kelsch. She also left a lasting and loving impression on her siblings and extended family. She is preceded in death by her loving mother Susan Kelsch and her dear aunt, Diana.

Following Holly's wishes, private family services will be held under the direction of Larkin Sunset Gardens Mortuary.
