Obituary of Nancy Amelia Holst
Nancy Amelia Holst left us at the age of 84 on January 19, 2023. She was living in Highlands Ranch, CO. Nancy was born on March 6, 1938 in Greenville, RI to Walter and Mildred White. She had a brother, Charlton (Bub) and a sister, Corinne. She graduated from Bucknell University in 1960. She married Dave Holst on June 22, 1968. She lived in numerous places throughout her childhood as they moved with Walter in the Navy. She lived in South Padre Island, TX, Santa Cruz, CA, Rutland, VT, Bremerhaven, Germany, Newbern, NC and then Philadelphia, PA. Nancy is survived by her husband, Dave; sister, Corinne; 3 sons: David Jr, Andy, and Stephen; and 5 grandchildren: Ben, Mavis, Charlotte, Aidan, and Rory. Her childhood was spent moving around the world as her father was a chaplain in the Navy. After completing her schooling she met her husband Dave and they enjoyed skiing in the Philadelphia ski club among other activities. When they had children they moved to Horsham, PA where they lived for the next 40 years. In 2017 Nancy and Dave moved to Colorado where she lived out the rest of her life near two of her three sons. Her support for others was unmatched and her friendships were unbreakable. One of her greatest qualities was her ability to laugh at herself. She touched more lives than we can know through the kindness of her heart.
