Holly K Andersen, age 57, passed away on Wednesday, May 16, 2018, at Sacred Heart Hospital in Spokane Valley, Washington. She was born December 15, 1960, in Hawaii to William and Shirley Andrews of Bonifay, Florida. Holly was married to Dean Andersen and they lived on a farmstead by Creston, Washington.

After her Navy retirement, Holly worked at the Grand Coulee Dam, where she was admired and respected by all. Holly truly lived life to the fullest and enjoyed chatting with family and friends, quilting, spending time with family, especially her children/grandchildren, and riding her Harley Davidson motorcycle. Holly was a free spirit with a big heart of gold. Holly had an uncanny ability to reach people in a compassionate and positive way, always with a smile on her face.
