Holly was born August 26, 1993, in Lansing. She left her earthly family so unexpectedly to be with her Lord on January 30, 2011. She was a senior at Holt High School where she was actively involved with the school store, environmental club and had numerous friends. Holly’s passion was dance, performing and competing in various styles. Her best gifts were her amazing smile and compassion for others, leaving a lasting impact on all who met her. Her vibrant presence will be missed dearly!
She leaves behind her loving family: her mother, Christine (Chris Kidd); father, Mark Bossenbery; her big brother, Christopher; extended siblings, Ashley and Brittany Kidd and Eric Spriggs; her grandparents; as well as numerous aunts, uncles, cousins and friends.
A Funeral Mass will be celebrated at 11:00 a.m. Thursday, February 3, 2011, at Immaculate Heart of Mary Catholic Church, 3815 S. Cedar St., Lansing, with The Rev. Fr. John A. Byers officiating. The family will receive friends at a memorial visitation at the Estes-Leadley Greater Lansing Chapel from 4-7 p.m. Wednesday. In lieu of flowers, please send contributions to Christine Bossenbery on behalf of Holly, for a memorial fund to be distributed at a later date.
“Beautiful! From walking down the hallway to gracefully gliding across the stage, there was that one word that described my sister. From playing ‘Bronco’ with our cousins in our basement to watching her get dressed for prom, she never failed to glow. Beautiful also describes the way she loved my mother, father, me, and everyone that came into her life. Never quick to judge, never holding grudges, her heart never failed to love to its fullest. Any who knew Holly knew her true beauty and the way she touched everyone so gracefully.”
Love, Christopher Mark Bossenbery
