Holly Michelle Harrison, 40, Kokomo, another beautiful angel entered the gates of heaven at 6:14 a.m. Saturday May 5, 2012, after an extended illness. She fought so long and now suffers no more. Holly was a wonderful, beautiful, courageous woman who struggled for 16 years battling multiple sclerosis and all the complications that go with it. She is finally free. We know what you have endured; we hope that you can forget. She has been set free, and earned her wings. You finally let go and “let God.” Love always, your family.
Holly was a graduate of Kokomo High School, and worked four years at Burger King before her illness. She liked performing karaoke, dancing, playing cards and bingo. She loved Tweety Bird, dolphins, unicorns, arts and crafts and crocheting. She and her sister took gymnastics and baton lessons growing up. Holly will bring much laughter as we reminisce about the silly things she said and did.
Holly is survived by, one son, Justin Harrison; her parents, Larry and Kathy (Neher) Laird; a granddaughter, Cadence Michelle Harrison; a sister, Heidi Harrison; nieces, Kailie and Kiersten Fain; “special” aunt and uncle Nancy and Gayle Richmond; stepbrothers, Sean and Evan Laird; stepnieces and nephews, Lexi Coose and Ben and Kinsey Kucholick; grandmother, A. Marie Collins; stepgrandfather, Everett Collins; grandfather, Leroy Long; stepgrandmother, Mable, Ohio; stepgrandparents, Larry and Judy Laird Sr., Florida; and cousins, Jason Richmond, Carmel, and Jill (Richmond) Kaufmann, Westfield.
