Holly Booth (Dillabough)
(March 17, 1977 – Sept. 7, 2017)
With heavy hearts, as the result of a car crash, we share the tragic news of Holly’s death on Thursday September 7. Holly, age 40 of Jasper, Ontario was the newly-wed and loving wife of Ryan Dillabough. An entrepreneur, Holly was the new owner of Kilmarnack Orchard and already working towards certifying as an organic orchard. True to her character, she lavished care and attention on the apples in order to produce a healthy crop of nutritious, tasty fruit. Her apples are just a tangible reminder of her nurturing legacy that will endure with her family and friends forever. She was fun, happy and reliable-a rock for many people. Her incredible and never ending love of her nieces and nephews contributed significantly to the well- being of the entire family. She will be missed beyond belief. Beloved granddaughter of Hazel Booth. Cherished daughter of the late Margaret Mitchell and the late Grant Booth. Much loved daughter-in-law of Ron and Elaine Dillabough. Considerate, warm-hearted, and understanding sister of DeeDee (Steven) Bekkers, Dodi Booth, Hazel Booth (Chris Locke), Grant Booth (Elise Pendlebury), and Megan Booth (Michel Raats). Loving sister-in-law of Dana (J.J.) Huisjes. Completely adoring and most amazing Aunt EVER of Rachel, Amy, Dayna, Myah, Landon, Stevie, Jacob, Luke, Bianca, Adelaide and Gauge. Fondly remembered by Uncle Mark Dillabough, dear friend and previous business partner Kurt Gebhardt, numerous best friends, and playful dog Marshmallow.
