She loved crafting, especially plastic canvas. One of Holly’s favorite activities was going on rides with members of the Bath American Legion Riders. As she got sicker, her American Legion friends were always lending support until the very end. She enjoyed going to races at the Wiscasset Speedway. Holly will always be remembered for her award-winning smile that could brighten any room.
