Our sweet mother, grandmother, great-grandmother and sister returned to her Heavenly Father on June 5, 1999.
She was a sensitive, kind and devoted mother, always putting her children's needs before her own. She taught her children a love for God and a love for all the beautiful things this world has to offer - beautiful music, good books, literature, nature, friends and family. Her sociability and sense of humor endeared her to all associates. She has an enthusiasm for life and wanted to learn everything, see everything, do everything there was to do. She had an unquenchable thirst for knowledge and the mysteries of life. She had a beautiful soprano voice, sang in the ward choir for many years, as well as solos and duets with her husband. She was an active member of the LDS Church. Mother also enjoyed her career as a steno-secretary.She was born in Salt Lake City on December 11, 1907, the first of 10 children of Melvin Ranck and Esther Lillace Brown Fisher. She was very responsible in loving care given to her siblings. She married Kenneth G. Hollingshead on April 14, 1932, at her home. On January 13, 1933, their marriage was sealed in the Salt Lake LDS Temple.
They had four children, Richard (Shan) Hollingshead, Jean (Steve) Moss, Roger (Carolyn) Hollingshead, and Linda (Vaughn) Erickson. Survived by her four children; 21 grandchildren, 30 great-grandchildren; and three sisters, Vera Caldwell, Erma Green, and Florence (Jean) Anderson.
We'd like to thank the aides, nurses, and recreation people at Sandy Regional who were so kind and caring toward mother her last few years. Also the kindness of the Sandy Regional Branch Presidency and Relief Society.
