Holly was born January 27, 1991 in North Platte, Nebraska the daughter of Patrick Thomas and Shellie Marie (Guilliaume) Heath. She attended Geil Elementary School, Gering Jr. High School, and Gering High School. She was an awesome soccer player and was protective of her players.

Holly was a hard worker. She owned and operated her own landscaping company, Hal’s Lawn and Landscaping, and also worked as a shift supervisor at Runza.

Holly was a strong, dedicated, and protective single mother of 4 including an unborn child. She loved unconditionally and would drop anything at any time to take care of a family member or friend. She loved being outdoors around nature, taking photographs of sunsets, collecting rocks and petrified wood, gardening, and operating her lawn care/landscaping business.

She enjoyed spending time with her children and family, crocheting, reading, sketching, woodworking, fishing, and rescuing animals. As a child she would walk the neighborhood for “lost” cats and dogs. It was important to Holly to spend the holidays as a family and to keep the tradition of having a Christmas stocking filled by Santa for each family member.

Holly is survived by her parents Pat and Shellie Heath of Gering, sisters Amy (Cody) Tiedje of Holdrege, NE and Kristen (Joel) Vogel of Scottsbluff; fiancé Matthew James Johnson of Scottsbluff; her children who were her pride and joy: Aven Everett Heath, Evelyn Ashling, and Keelyn Christine Laux; numerous nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends.

Holly was preceded in death by her grandparents: Carl and H. Nadine Heath and Robert, Sr. and Lillian Guilliaume.

Holly was so proud to be an organ donor and so excited to have the organ donor symbol on her driver’s license. Holly was able to fulfill her passion by giving the gift of life.

Pat and Shellie, I am so very sorry for your loss. I remember well Holly and Lindsay playing together (or fighting - depending on the day ) when you had your daycare. Remember how we used to laugh about whatever they had done that day? Again, I am so very sorry - my thoughts and prayers are with you all.

I just wanted to wish all of her family and friends my condolences. I just wanted to say that Holly was a strong, loving, passionate women that didn't deserve this. I remember when Matthew told me he is going to be a daddy. The following morning Matthew and I drove to Nebraska to pick Holly up. When we arrived in Nebraska Matthew jumped out of the car and ran up the Holly and gave her the biggest hug and kiss possible. I knew right then they were meant for each other. Over the next few months I got to know Holly. I could see Matthew was the love her life. Again I wish my condolences and my love for her friends and family.
