Kathleen "Katie" Holland Obituary

Our Mother and Grandmother Katie Holland left this world on Monday, March 13th, 2017 much the same way she lived her life- on her own terms.

She simply decided it was time and she shut her body down.

She knew in her heart and mind that once she was standing on the threshold to the door of everything she had known and loved in this life and she stepped off into the darkness of the unknown, she would find one of two things- there would be something solid for her to stand on, or she would be taught to fly.

Born in East Garston, England November 4, 1931, she came to California after WWII in the early 1950's. She found and married Bill Holland and Yuba City, CA became her home.

She joins her Husband Bill, Son Mike, and Sister Eileen in the surly bonds above, along with her parents and all those before her that brought her to this point.

She leaves those of us here to carry on, her Son Paul, his Wife Shelly, and her daughters Lynn, and Lesley; Grandchildren Zachary, Ashley, Brooke, and Benjamin along with 3 great grandchildren, her family in England, sister Evelyn Berry, and her children Keith, Mick, and Tessa, and their extended families.

She loved gardening, The Art Club, and playing Bridge with her many friends. She traveled to all of the places she wanted to see, places that made this life worthwhile. She volunteered for many organizations over the years- the YMCA, The Humane Society, she was a Pink Lady with the Fremont Rideout Auxiliary, and worked with the Cancer Society in honor of her husband after she lost him to cancer.

She and Bill made many cherished friends throughout their life and the family would like to thank all of those throughout the years that made her life so fun.

Per her wishes there will be no standard services. Should friends desire, contributions may be sent to the Iles Academy of Golf for Kids PO Box 1384, Marysville, CA 95901. Tax ID#68-0459477
