February 10, 1955 – May 17, 2019
It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of Holly Christensen on Friday May 17th at the West Coast General in Port Alberni. Her health had been a struggle for years, and this latest trip to the hospital, proved to be her last. She died peacefully with her devoted long time partner Bob, her daughter Chrystal, and sister Nora, by her side. Her son Morgan had been to see her and say his goodbyes the day before. Holly will be remembered for her free spirit, her generosity, her sense of humour and her zest for life. She was a hard worker, a proud mother, a caring neighbour and an animal lover, but it was the spontaneous and fun loving nature that won her so many friends, that will linger in the memories of all those who knew her.
Predeceased by her parents, Pinky (Robert) and Marge Christensen, she follows too quickly in the footsteps of her brother Bob, who passed just this past January 31st. She is survived by her daughter Chrystal Jones (Joel Ransom) Fort St. John, B.C., son Morgan Jones, Ucluelet B.C., partner Bob Johnson, Port Alberni, B.C., brother Dave (Terry) Ucluelet B.C., sister Nora (Brian Lunn) Parksville, B.C., her children’s father Alan Jones, Kamloops, B.C., plus nieces, nephews, cousins, an uncle and an amazing collection of friends. She also wanted mentioned her furry and feathered grand babies in Fort St John; she often sent them gifts and proudly shared their pictures with those around her.
She asked for no service or flowers, however if you’d like to honour her memory, she requested donations be made to the SPCA or the Salvation Army. A Celebration of Life will be held in Ucluelet later this fall.
