The family of Elva A. Hollingbery sadly announces her passing on Saturday, Oct. 2.
Born July 15, 1922, daughter of Oscar and Elin Renstrom of Struthers, Elva was the 11th of 12 children. Widowed by Rodney Hollingbery after 53 years of marriage, Elva is remembered with love by her brother William (Ruby) Renstrom of Colorado, daughters Ellen DeBernardo and Andrea (Paul) Harvey, son Rodney (Elizabeth Hanlon); grandchildren Chris and Leslie Mediate, Craig DeBernardo, Nicole and Ray McNally, Dustin Harvey, Jessica Harvey; and great-grandchildren Christopher and Carson Mediate, and Tyler, Reagan and Brady McNally.
Elva’s effect on our lives was a true gift, and her remembrance will be a tremendous comfort for us all, forever. We hope this notice finds those who knew Elva well, as her concern was always for the others in her life. We have lost a very important part of our humanity, and it is only her selfless example by which we will be able to find our own peace.
In lieu of gifts, please direct donations to the Alzheimer’s Foundation of America.
