Holly moved to Prescott in 1994 with her husband, Timothy, and opened Ramsey Surveying, Inc.

Holly was the heart and Tim was the soul of Ramsey Surveying. Together they were a magnificent team, both in and out of the office.

Holly enjoyed her lunches at the Grill and dinner out or at her house with friends and family. Her fascination with horses brought her to a caring neighborhood which she adored. Holly loved Prescott, her home, family, and her friends.

Holly is survived by her beloved son, Dale, of San Diego, Calif.; and daughter, Margie, of Chino Valley, Ariz. She is also survived by seven grandchildren and 11 great grandchildren. Holly was a wonderful wife, mother, and grandmother. She will be greatly missed.
