Hollie Kae Birch

1970 ~ 2011
Holli Kae Cook Birch returned to her Father-in-Heaven on November 3, 2011. She came to earth fighting for life and returned the same way after a 6 ½ year battle with breast cancer. Holli was born with her twin sister Heidi on April 19, 1970 to her parents Romell Richard Cook and Sharlene Sylvia (Cowan) Cook. She was working in the Jordan River Temple when she renewed a friendship with the man of her dreams, Terry Birch. They soon were married on the 26th of March 1993 in the Jordan River Temple. Both were hearing impaired and so they had many challenges. They became the parents to four loving children. Michelle (17), Jordan (14), Travis (12), and Robbie (8). Holli's love, faith, and happiness blessed many lives. Her family and friends have always been blessed because of her. Likewise Holli has always had an abundance of angels on earth and in heaven to help her through her trials. Her testimony of the Gospel sustained her through her many trials. She was proud to be a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. Her smile could bring the Sunlight into a room. She loved to read, scrapbook, and her wheelchair rides with her brother Matt.
She is survived by her husband Terry, children Michelle, Jordan, Travis, and Robbie, her parents, brother Matt (Jerie), Sisters Heidi Reeve (Jeff), Heather Woodman (Ron), Hailey Foster (Nick), brother-in-law Wayne Birch (Tiffanie) and sister-in-law Wendy Birch. Also a grandmother Luana Cowan and many Uncles, Aunts, Nieces & Nephews & friends.
We know that Heaven's embraced you with loving arms.
The family would like to thank the Doctors, Nurses, and staff at the Huntsman Cancer Institute, the caring professionals at CNS, and Valley Home Medical.
