Patricia Ann Holm
Patricia "Patty" Ann Holm, 46, died with faith and courage in her home at Lewiston, MN surrounded by family on Monday, June 5th, 2017.
Patty was born March 17, 1971 in Rochester, MN, the daughter of Roland and Edith (Mueller) Holm, who courageously brought her home to live her life with God's plans.
Early on, Patty did whatever the rest of the family did and she kept up with amazing expectations. She was enrolled and graduated from Lewiston-Altura High School in 1992. Soon after graduation, it was her time to leave the "nest" just like all the other siblings. She moved to Winona, MN in a group home managed by Home Community Options and worked at various locations through her only employer--Occupational Resource Center (ORC). She celebrated 25 years with ORC and officially retired soon after that. She spent a short amount of time at Saint Anne of Winona and then looked forward to life in Lewiston. Even though Patty was born with Down Syndrome she did not allow the disability to define the life she would live. She was actively involved in many hobbies and activities--swimming, bowling, traveling, Special Olympics, and more. She had a T-Shirt that summed up her life--"Label Jars Not People".
Patty's life was truly a gift to her family, friends, and everyone who knew her. She touched many lives with her smile, beautiful blue eyes, unbelievable courage, and unconditional love.
Patty will be greatly missed by her parents; siblings, Colleen Holm, Annette Holm, Monica (Wes) Drake, Gene (Lisa) Holm, Sharon (Tom) Bottensek, Brenda (Dave) Cinotto; her multiple cousins; beloved nieces and nephews; friends from ORC and HCO; and the countless other people that are too many to mention here. She joins her brother, Dean Michael Holm, who passed away in 1983, for eternal life.
Please join the Holm family in a celebration of Patty's inspirational and courageous life at 11:00am on Thursday, June 8, 2017 at Saint Charles Borremeo Church. Visitation will be from 6-8pm Wednesday, June 7 at the Church and one hour prior to mass on Thursday.
