Holly Ann Corrigan

June 16, 1964 — July 3, 2022

Holly Ann (Olson) Corrigan was born June 16, 1964 in Mason City, IA to Harlan and Sandra Olson. She was baptized at First Shell Rock, Northwood, IA and confirmed at Salem Lutheran Church in Lake Mills, IA. It was in Lake Mills where her love of horses and the outdoors began. She grew up on her family’s farm and wasn’t afraid to get her hands dirty. Holly graduated from Lake Mills High School in 1982 and found her way to the University of Southern Colorado in Pueblo where she graduated in 1990 with a Bachelor of Science in Nursing.

While in Colorado, she met Timothy Corrigan—the love of her life. They were married September 19, 1992 at Trinity Lutheran Church in Iowa. Already having a fondness for the outdoors, she fell in love with the mountains, so the new couple found themselves moving to Montana in August of 1992 where she continued her 30-year career in nursing. She was a true caregiver—caring deeply for her clients and this was noticed by the people she cared for who also loved and respected her as a caregiver.

In June of 1998, the couple moved to Twin Bridges, Montana. Here they raised four beautiful, headstrong children. In every aspect of her life she was a caregiver and a mother. She supported her kids in all of their endeavors. There wasn’t a sporting event that she missed—often being the loudest voice in the arena. In terms of family, it was her everything. From the “Hey, Mom come look at this!” projects from her boys, girls trips to Las Vegas with her daughters, and all the late night talks with all of her children, Holly was the epitome of a matriarch. She loved camping, picnicking, foraging for wildflowers, and gardening in her green-house—she loved life.

In 2017, Holly was diagnosed with stage 4 colorectal cancer, and despite battling for five hard years, she passed away in the early hours of Sunday, July 3, 2022 while surrounded by her family. She is survived by her husband of 30 years, Timothy Corrigan, her four children; Katie (Ben) Christensen, Jacob (Hillary, Gisele, and Eleanor), Benjamin, and Erika (Jeff and Caleb), father, Harlan Olson, sister, Jodi (Darin) Ruud, and her nephew Trevor Willert (Amanda).

She is proceeded in death by her mother, Sandra Olson, grandparents, Elmer and Bealuh Olson, and Selmer and Katherine Folven.
