Holly Young WALTER Obituary
WALTER, Holly Young

Holly Young Walter passed away peacefully at her Wellington, FL, home on Sunday, November 3, 2013. Born August 16, 1959, she grew up in Huntington, IN and moved to Stuart, FL in 1980. Holly's enduring and incredibly kind spirit will be cherished by her beloved husband, John Raymond Walter; step-daughter, Emily Rose Walter of Gainesville; mother, Mrs. Jerry Gene (Averill) Young of Stuart; twin sister, Heather Young of Jensen Beach; and brother, Jerry Todd Young (Nina and son, Robert) of Ft. Wayne, IN. She was predeceased by her father, Jerry Gene Young. Holly was the very loved daughter-in-law of Joan and Harvey Walter of Wellington; sister-in-law to Debby Alexander (Ken and daughter, Brandy) of Dublin, OH; Donna Kupper (Randy and daughters, Meagan (John) Rodriguez and Jordan Kupper) of Coral Gables; Diana Kugler (Ken) of Lauderdale-by-the-Sea; Harvey P. Walter, Jr., of Chicago, IL; and Marysue Bean (Jeff and children Victoria and Bryan), of Wellington; and leaves many aunts, uncles, cousins and friends. A graduate of Huntington North High School (1977), Huntington, IN, Vanderbilt University ('81 B.A. magna cum laude, History), Nashville, TN, and Washington & Lee University School of Law ('91 J.D.), Lexington, VA, Holly will be remembered as an accomplished attorney and counselor, a kind and trusted friend and consoler, and lover of nature and all of God's creatures and creations. Holly and her husband Ray enjoyed frequent trips to the Big Trees of Sequoia National Park, CA, where Holly accepted Ray's marriage proposal; and to Zion National Park, Utah, where the couple celebrated their honeymoon. Throughout her six-month battle against a very aggressive cancer, Holly displayed strong courage and consistently maintained an amazingly positive and hopeful attitude and spirit, and was accepting and unafraid even when facing the sudden and unexpected end-stage to her condition. Holly remains an inspiration to all around her, and she accepted her fate with faith in God and knowing she was truly loved. In lieu of flowers, send memorials in Holly's memory to Best Friends Animal Society, 5001 Angel Canyon Road, Kanab, UT 84741; or the charity of your choosing. To honor Holly take a walk in the woods; visit a national park or natural area to appreciate nature's beauty; or simply show kindness to a dog. A celebration of Holly's spirit will be held Saturday, November 16, 2013 at 11:30 AM at St. David's in the Pines Episcopal Church, 465 W. Forest Hill Blvd., Wellington, FL, with a reception following.
