Born in Washington, Aug. 1, 1980, she was the daughter of Brian Cleo and Katherine Anne Bilodeau Bartlett. As a child Holly grew up in both Washington and Union and was a 1998 graduate of Medomak Valley High School.
Holly spent much of her time with her grandparents, Gerald and Marlene Bartlett and her aunt Jolene Murray.

She worked as a chef in various restaurants from Maine to Arizona and was also a jewelry artisan. She excelled at college in Southern Maine.
She will be remembered as someone who loved to party and have fun.
Holly let no grass grow under her feet; and she has many friends both young and old that loved her. She will be missed by all.
