Obituary of Ann Holley

Ann Marie Holley (nee Holmes), 66, of Renfrew Ontario, passed away peacefully in her home on October 3rd, 2018 in Spring Hill, Florida, after a courageous battle with cancer. Ann was born in Chapleau, Ontario, November 9th, 1951 to parents Keith and Theresa Holmes.

Beloved wife and best friend of Jack Holley. Loving and devoted mother to Ryan Holley (Jodie Wilson) and Racheal Briscoe (Glen Briscoe) . Adored “Florida” Grandma to Brooklyn and Carter Holley;  Dawson, Keith and Clayton Briscoe.    

Cherished “big sis” to Helen (Phil) Crozier, Barb (Rick) Desilets and Margaret (Gerard) Agnew.  A very special Aunt to many nieces and nephews, as well as grand-nieces and nephews.

Ann had an extensive career as a registered nurse for over 40 years in both Canada and the United States. While living abroad she also volunteered in India & Africa. In everything she did in life she brought compassion and caring, strength and resilience, love and respect. An angel in many ways, she will forever have touched those who knew her and our memories of Ann will be in our hearts forever.

You rest now. It will be okay. 

Memorial Mass will be celebrated at Our Lady of Fatima Church, Saturday October 20th at 9:30 a.m. Interment St. Francis Xavier Cemetery. Luncheon and a time for remembrance will follow at the Renfrew Golf Club. In Memory of Ann, donations to Renfrew Victoria Hospital Oncology would be appreciated.


“When I must leave you for a little while,

Please go on bravely with a gallant smile.

And for my sake, and in my name,

live on and do all things the same.

Spend not your life in empty days,

But fill each waking hour in useful ways.

Reach out your hand in comfort and in cheer,

And I in turn will comfort you and hold you near.”
