Obituary of Holly Anne White
It is with a heavy heart that our family announces the passing of Holly Anne White (nee Thody) on Friday morning, June 19, 2020.
Holly truly was courageous in a fight with the disease “Systemic Lupus Erythematosus” that lasted 34 years with complications that in the end took her life. We celebrated 35 years of marriage and her 60th birthday in 2019.
Holly is predeceased by her father Don Thody; uncles Jim Brown and Alec Brown; aunts Betty Brown, Mary Jane Bryce and Anne Walls.
Holly is survived by her husband Barry White; son Jason; mother Marne Thody; brother Charles Thody (wife Claudine); sister Melody Gale; daughters Jensina Wilson (daughter Jordynn) and Courtney Debreceni; and her uncle Butch Wall (sons Doug & Mike).
These last couple of years Holly had to rely on her sister Melody to drive her to appointments. She enjoyed these times to get together with family and just hanging out after, going for lunch or just having a coffee.
She was truly a kind and gentle soul who loved to laugh, smile and she would always listen. Holly’s Mom and others always got their “Holly fix”, by a phone call, Facebook post, coffee or lunch. Holly loved her family and friends and she always wanted to help. In the last years she couldn’t do as much but people wanted to have her come for a visit, a chat, a laugh. She always cherished the time she had with her friends.
Holly loved dogs and supported the Regina Humane Society. Holly leaves behind her dog Jack that she rescued from the Humane Society. He just latched onto her and that was that. She always made time to take Jack for his walk every day. She spoiled all our dogs and that made her happy.
She volunteered at the Red Cross years ago and the girls got together later in life and started going out for regular lunches. She would order a dessert and forks for everyone else to share. Going out for a “bite” shouldn’t end without a dessert. She liked baking. She would always say “there wasn’t a cookie that didn’t like her”.
Holly enjoyed talking football with her Uncle Butch, after every rider game they would get on the phone a discuss how the game went and what the Riders could do better next time. If it wasn’t that day after the game it would be the next day.
Holly was easy to be around and will be truly missed. The best way to remember a person is to tell a story about them. Please remember her kindly and the hole that was left by her passing can be filled with the memories of laughter and happiness.
