OSMAN--Holly, Surrounded by her loving family, Holly Cohen Osman of Scarsdale, NY, died at home on June 14th. Holly fought stage IV breast cancer for seven years, determined to go about her life as usual. She inspired everyone with her positive outlook, and she lived by her motto, "You can find something positive in everything." Devoted to supporting other people living with cancer, Holly volunteered with the American Cancer Association, as well as with Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center. Holly's creative talents abounded, and were exemplified through the interior design firm she founded and led, Holly Osman Designs. She is survived by her devoted husband of 27 years, Richard, her children, Sarah and Eric, her father, Murray Cohen and his partner, Beverly Albert, her brother, Thomas Cohen, her sister, Amy Cohen, sisters-in-law Elisa Singer, Nancy Kaplan, and Meg Osman, brothers-in-law Josh Kaplan and Martin Levion, in-laws Betty and Al Osman, and five nieces and nephews. Holly was predeceased by her mother, Joyce Arnoff Cohen. We will forever treasure our memories of her smile, her laugh, her warmth, her incredible style, her amazing dinner parties, and most of all her brave, positive, fighting spirit.
