Holly Mae Gibbens attended Redwood Elementary School and graduated from Sunset High School. Holly Mae loved to have a good time. With her bubbly personality and tender heart, she touched the lives of many people. Her bright smile and infectious laugh would light up a room. Holly Mae was quite the jokester and an accomplished prankster. She had the last laugh many a time. 

She was loyal and protective and will be remembered for her fierce love for her family, friends, and dog Marley. Her greatest treasures in life were her girls, Venessa and Miranda, who overflowed her heart with joy and pride. Family and friends are invited to join together in a Celebration of Holly Mae’s Life on Sunday, June 2, 2013, from 2-5 p.m. at Howonquet Hall Community Center, 101 Indian Court, Smith River.

Survivors include Holly Mae’s parents, mother Rebecca Lopez; late stepfather John Lopez; father Clark Cromwell; and stepmother Sally Endert Brun; daughters Venessa Webb and Miranda Webb; sister Dawn Singletary (Brian); brothers Chris Jones (Amanda), John Lopez (Liz), and Matthew Lopez; stepsisters Tracie Whipple, Heather Lopez, and Holly Lopez (James); and stepbrother Jeremiah Rodriguez. 

She was a fun-loving aunt to Jessica Baeur, Leslie Singletary, Ty Jones, Bailee Jones, Alicia Lopez, Jalissa Cole, Elisabeth Lopez, Jenna Lopez, D.J. Land, great-niece Cheyanne Carr, and numerous aunts, uncles and cousins. Her companion was John Salisbury.
