Leanne Marie Holum
October 6, 1981 – April 29, 2020
Leanne Marie Holum was welcomed into the world on October 6, 1981 by her parents, Curt and Susan Holum of Clatskanie OR. On April 29th, at the age of 38, she was taken from us by a senseless act of violence.
Leanne was an animal lover and always had a dog by her side. She loved horses and was inspired to join the 4H as a youth. Leanne graduated from Clatskanie High School in 2000 and then soon after set out on an adventure throughout Oregon and California before settling in Arizona.
Leanne had a huge heart. Her family was very important to her and she treated her friends like family. Her two beautiful girls with Mark Bais, Saiya and Makayla, brought love and pride into her heart as she loved being their mother. Leanne was strong, funny, beautiful, loud and obnoxious. She never shied away from voicing her opinion nor from excitement. Just six months before her death she was planning to get a degree in counseling to be able help others.
Her family wants her to know how much she was loved and how much she will be missed. Her family will ensure that her children grow up knowing how much love Leanne held for them. We are so sad that this is how her story ends.
Leanne leaves behind both of her parents, Susan Holum of Clatskanie, OR; Curt Holum of Arizona; daughters Saiya Bais and Makayla Bais of Phoenix AZ, and many aunts, uncles, cousins and friends.
Memorial Arrangements have been postponed and will be announced as soon as the world allows. In lieu of flowers please reach out to those around you, lend a helping hand and always be kind, just as Leanne would have wanted.

Leanne lived with us and the kids in 2019 for a few months . She was the best mom to those 2 beautiful girls and she was an amazing friend . She would put anyone first other then herself . Me and my family are devastated by the news . So unfair ! We took her to sedona for her 38th birthday and she said it was her perfect birthday. She would always be there for us when needed. She would love us unconditionally and she was an example of compassion , friendship, parent , etc. Regardless of her tougher times, she would be an amazing mom . She told me once that not all angels come on earth with wings . Some come to suffer to understand the pain . I couldn't make sense of her statement back then , but now I can . I miss her , I am so mad that the way I found out was not hearing back from her , which she would always reply within minutes . She was calling our house her heaven and she loved to spend every second here with the kids and with our kids . We will love you Leanne for the rest of our lives and cherish your memory every day. You were your own form of an angel.

Leanne was my cousin, the one I’ve always been the closest too. I have so many funny and crazy memories of her. I will miss her laugh, her loud obnoxious sense of humor, watching the love she shared with her daughters and her strength. We used to make our parents play pinochle with us until the middle of the night. She taught us how the best way to eat breadsticks at Olive Garden was to dip in Alfredo sauce then dip all of that in freshly shredded Romano cheese. She was one of a kind and I will always miss her.
