HOLLIE BEARD


IDAHO FALLS, ID -- Hollie Beard, our beloved Holls Bolls, left this earth on September 1, 2007. She was killed in a tragic automobile accident while traveling to our family cabin to spend the holiday with Cassie, her sister and best friend.


Hollie was born December 17, 1982 to Winston and Carolyn Beard. She was the youngest of eight children and was the perfect final touch to the Beard family.


Hollie was born and raised in Idaho Falls, Idaho and graduated from Hillcrest High School. She developed many close relationships with her friends and teachers as she went through school. What a cherished blessing her friends have been to her throughout her life. Thank you all for your love!


Hollie had many talents and hobbies including drawing, music, yoga, hiking, and swimming. Most of all, she loved drama. She studied acting at Brigham Young University, where she graduated with honors in 2005 and was selected by the faculty to be the graduation speaker. Hollie grew to love the characters she portrayed in plays and skits. In her senior year at BYU, she played Joan of Arc, a character with whom Hollie shared many qualities. She loved and admired Joan's strength and courage.


Hollie had great strength of character and courage in facing life's challenges. Her greatest qualities were her tender heart, and quick and warm smile that endeared her to so many.


Hollie loved animals, including her dog Edgar (named after Edgar Allen Poe) and her previous dog Data (named after Data on Star Trek). Animals could sense her tender heart and they returned her affection with great loyalty.


Aunt Hollie will be missed by all her nieces and nephews. She loved children and it was one of her greatest wishes to be a mother, like her own adoring mother.


Hollie had a deep abiding love for the Savior. She carried with her a testimony of Jesus Christ and a knowledge that she is a daughter of God. She believed that it was not happenstance, but by divine design that she was placed on the earth at this time. She lived a wonderful life and was a great blessing to those that knew and loved her.


Hollie did not like to be left behind. As her seven older siblings left for college and missions, she lamented being left behind. Hollie is now the one to leave and we are left behind, longing for the day that we will see her beautiful face again. She will be greatly missed!
Survivors include her parents Winston and Carolyn Beard of Idaho Falls, and her siblings, Randy Beard (Andrea) of Orem, Roxane Smith (Dave) of Vernon, British Columbia, Eric Beard (Tanya) of North Salt Lake, Matt Beard (Alyssa) of Denver, Jeff Beard (Camille) of Colorado Springs, Keli Jo Beard (engaged to Dave Mull) of Salt Lake City, Cassie Crystal (Austin) of Idaho Falls, and seventeen nieces and nephews.


Funeral Services will be held at 1 p.m. Thursday, September 6, 2007, at the Ammon LDS West Stake Center, 2055 Coronado, Idaho Falls. The family will visit with friends Wednesday from 6 to 8 p.m. at Wood Funeral Home, 273 N. Ridge, and Thursday from 12 Noon to 12:45 p.m. prior to services at the church. Burial will be in the Ammon Cemetery.

Dear Beard Family,
I am so sorry and shocked to hear of Hollie's passing. I was her Bishop for two years when she lived in Centennial Apartments. She was a sweet, wonderful, righteous young woman that I had the privilege of getting to know quite well. My wife and I attended some of her performances. I was just thinking about her a couple of weeks ago, wondering what she was up to and thinking I should contact her. How I wish I had. Please accept my deepest sympathy and condolences. We will pray for your good family in this incredible time of trial.

I went to high school with Hollie, and I just wanted to let you know how heartbroken I am to hear of her passing. In high school she had a gift for making everyone feel liked and accepted. I always felt that when I was around her. My heart and prayers will be with you. The world certainly won't be same without her.

I am so very sorry for your loss . . . well it is everyone's loss who knew Hollie. I had the honor of being in one of my first plays at Hillcrest with Hollie. She had such an amazing spirit and passion for life and it showed through her acting. She was an amazing actor. After I saw her monologue as Ophelia from Hamlet, my goal was to become as good an actor as Hollie Beard. But, if she could portray such a complex character with such feeling it was only because of the inner beauty and strength she posessed as a person. The world was a better place for having her in it and she will be missed. I offer my sincerest condolences to all of her family.
With love,
Shannon Stanger

I am so sorry for your loss, and my son Eric Millard was deeply saddened by the news. He was a good friend of Hollie's from Hillcrest, they performed in some drama production together and he loved her beautiful and fun-loving personality!

Dear Beard Family,
I am Matt Davis's sister. I want to express my deepest sympathy to your family. The loss of Hollie has been difficult for many. Her kindness and smile had a ripple effect and her passing is also having a ripple effect. Many lives were touched by Hollie. Our family has shed many tears over her passing and my young children have expressed their sadness. Hollie was very loving and kind toward them. She spent time with them and they felt she was their friend. My eight-year old daughter expressed concern that Hollie "never even had a chance to be a mom". I assured her that Hollie would indeed have a chance to be a mother and we talked of what a wonderful mother she will be. Hollie was a very special person to Matt and our entire family. We loved having her around. We are so grateful to have known her, for the way she touched our lives and for the blessing she was in Matt's life. We will truly miss her.
With love and sympathy,
Stephanie (Davis) Sorensen

Dear Beard family,
While we did not know your daughter Hollie, we wanted to let you know that we recently built a home with your son Eric and have come to consider him a good friend. We looked long and hard to find a builder and, although we were obviously concerned about his abilities to build our home, we were even more concerned with finding someone who would treat us honestly and ethically. We truly believe we found that with Eric. His character is very genuine and sincere and we would imagine your sweet daughter Hollie was raised to be just as good of a person as Eric is. We hope you find great comfort in knowing that you will be together again and that she has just gone ahead to prepare the way. We too have recently lost a loved one and know the terrible ache your hearts are feeling right now. We pray you may find peace during this trial that has been placed upon you.

Looking through the DesNews today I was caught be the picture of this beautiful girl in the obits named Hollie. I felt a warmth to her in just seeing her beautiful picture, but I could feel the great love in the words written about her. I commend highly, the person who wrote this message about this beautiful daughter of Heaven. I could feel each word, and thought, Oh I wish I could call someone on the phone to tell them we love Hollie by just reading the words of love about her. To the family we express our love and say, "May the Lord Bless you, dear family." Weep not for your love will not go unanswered one day. We love all of you in your family for we can feel it strongly from what was written.

I wish to send my deepest and most heartfelt condolences to the family and friends of Hollie. I am the Elders Quorum President of the Orem Utah Park 9th (YSA) ward where Hollie attended. It truly was an honor and a privilege to know and associate with Hollie. She has so many great qualities and will be sorely missed in our ward and in the neighborhood. As Hollie entered the church, the light that would emanate from her countenance was simply incredible. She bore a powerful testimony both verbally and by her quiet, sustained actions. Upon meeting Hollie for the first time, I was immediately drawn to her because of her goodness and the spirit that she carried with her. She has blessed my life tremendously and I am eternally grateful for my association and friendship with Hollie. I miss her but look forward to the day when I may see her again, as I am sure all of you do as well. May all who mourn at this time receive the comfort of knowing that Hollie's spirit still lives and that she has a great work to do on the other side of the veil. On behalf of the Park 9th Ward, I thank you for allowing us to know your beloved daughter, sister, aunt,cousin, and friend. Our ward IS better because Hollie attended and served with us.
Sincerely,
Bryan Seastrand

We haven't been able to stop thinking about you and the tragic loss of your dear Hollie. We want you to know how sorry we are to hear of this and wish we were there to give you a big hug and offer our love and support. Our memory of Hollie was at your wedding when Charlyn and Hollie served together and really hit it off. Charlyn (now in Oregon)sends her love also and is in disbelief as we all are. Thanks to modern technology we were able to see Hollies picture and obituary and can really sense her beautiful spirit and personality. Most of all I wish we could be at her services to testify that you can live through this as we have. The heartache is so painful, but luckily we have the gospel and all the promises we had before this happened, we just have to wait a little longer to fully recieve them. We love you and your wonderful family. Give Taylor and Kyle a big hug from us.
Love Auncle Alan, Aunt Eileen, Krystal & Jace. Shelly and Boyd Stewart, Melanie, Char & Derek.

Dear Winston (in years past I would have called you Winnie), I was so saddened to learn of the loss of your daughter, Hollie. From all I read, she must have been a wonderful daughter. Even though I haven't seen you for years, probably about the time I went on my mission to Germany in 1959, I still remember you and your sweet spirit so well as we were growing up in the 5th Ward. Please know I have been thinking about you since I learned of the loss of your daughter. You will be in my prayers. Please accept my most sincere condolences.
Your friend, Brent

Right now I am barely able to breathe. Your grief is unimaginable to me and I know there is nothing anyone can say or do that will dilute your pain. Hollie is a sensitive, sensitive child with a loving heart and remarkable soul. She is enjoying the rapture of a loving Savior whose arms hold tightly his child. I love you all so much. Words can't say.
"Death is not extinguishing the light.It is turning off the lamp because the dawn has come."
I know you know that. I pray for your peace and comfort.

Words can not express how deeply saddened and shocked we are to hear of Hollie's tragic passing. I have often thought about her over the years, especially running onto some older photos of us when we were children. I will never forget the wonderful times over at Ammon pool, the paino recitles, and hanging out in the summer time on the swingset in the back yard. She has left a print in everyone that knows her. She was such a tender spirit and will be missed by all. Just know that she is watching over you all at this time, and waiting for you on the other side. We will keep you in our prayers . . . . . . .

I am so sad about Hollie, very rarely in life do you run into someone like Hollie, I consider myself and my family one of the very lucky ones. Hollie was the first and only one to offer to work a double for me so I could stay home with a sick kid, taking the time to help Kaylee (my 11) year old with her math numerous times, and not to mention the times she listened to my complaints and offered her kind loving wise words, and I have never seen anyone care for another and to put her job on the line to stand behind another, not only did she have faith in me and stand up for me time after time, I saw her do it for Megan as well. What a sweet loving caring true friend, one of a kind and how lucky am I to have known Holls Bolls.

I just wanted to tell you how much I loved/love you daughter. I taught her in several classes at BYU and considered her as one of my top sudents and so talented. But even more than that I enjoyed her. She was such a dedicated friend to every one in the classes. She was so willing and quick to love and to praise others. I was so very sorry to hear about her accident and even though I don't have anything that is greatly profound to say...I just couldn't not say anything because I truly did love and enjoy her so much and I am so so sorry for your loss.

Dear Beard Family,
Since finding out about Hollie's death I have been pouring over my memories of her. The sleepovers, piano recitals, debate trips. Hollie has touched my life in so many ways and I am so grateful for her friendship. She was truly beautiful in every way. Please know that your family is in my, and my family's, prayers. May you find comfort through memories, the gospel and through our Savior.
With Deepest Sympathy and Regard,

Dear Family,
You don't know me, and I've never done this before. But, I was drawn to your Sweet Angel Daughter's picture tonight as I was walking past our news paper. I was so touched by the beautiful words and feeling's that so tenderly introduced us to your dear, sweet daughter, sister, friend, Aunt etc...Please be aware that your family will be in our prayers, I have lost 6 family members in the last two years, and even though my pain has been deep., So is my conviction that Heavenly Father, Jesus, and our loved one's who are now in Heaven, are still ever close and concerned about our welfare. And just as they, we too, are not forgotten!!! The day's that wait ahead, will sometimes seem unbearable! But as you keep your hearts open, and allow Heavenly Father and Jesus to give you peace, it will come, I promise!! My love and prayers are with you all!!
Sincerely, Kim Hansen.

“To us, death is like passing into another room, only it has a different clock. And what seems like ages, for us to be without a loved one, is only a short time passing for those that are gone. We shall all meet again and embrace as we did before. I am not afraid of death, only the pain of death. Crossing from one room into another is not difficult, getting caught in the door is what we fear.”
Diantha (a play)
I truly express my deepest apologies for not being able to share the following thoughts with all of you in person.
I’ve been remembering things about Hollie ever since I heard of her death. Although her life had some very difficult heartaches and tragedies, she still had a gentleness about her, a sense of kindness. She had a desire to excel and improve in her talents. When she performed her senior project, Getting Married, your eyes were drawn to her portrayal, even though her character was demure and quiet. There was a light, an energy within her that had such strength. Even when other fellow actors were “having a bad night” and not communicating as well as they should, Hollie’s performance was always warm and consistent and true. I was so proud of her when she was one of the 2005 convocation speakers. Her speech made me realize the strength, wisdom and maturity she had gained. As always, she made my heart smile.
I pray that Hollie’s crossing through death’s door was only momentary and that she was quickly taken into the loving arms of Jesus Christ. She will be genuinely missed on this side of the veil.
Sincerely,
Barta Heiner

What a magnificent time we all had with Hollie. I met Hollie at Hillcrest during our freshman year in drama, and knew she was something great. I will never forget her passion and talent for life. She was on her way to running the world. What a truly gifted and unique person she was. Hollie was one of my favorite friends. She was a rare find. She was a kind generous fun loving girl whose friendship and love I cherish and miss. We had the kind of friendship when time slipped away, the second we were united again it was as though I never left her side. Perhaps that is why this is such a shock. She helped me see how to make life an adventure and taught me to cherish every second we have to live. What a treasure she has been in my life, a beam of light that I know continues to shine with our Heavenly Father. I love you and miss you Holls. Love - Thor

My heart is saddened. I will forever remember Hollie as the little girl I coached in softball who came to practice and games in shiny black patent leather dress shoes. It still makes me laugh. What a sweeheart! I had the privilege of teaching Matt at Edgemont many years ago and I loved it that I got to know his little sister as one of my daughter's friends. God bless your family. I'm praying for you. "The Lord is good, a refuge in times of trouble. He cares for those who trust in Him." Nahum 1:7

I was at Heritage Schools while Hollie was a counselor there. She was the first person I met when I got there and she bacame one of the most inportant figures in my life throughout my stay. Hollie inspired me to change what I had been doing. She set an example for me to follow that I will always remember. She will live on in the hearts of all the kids that she helped at Heritage. I would like to send my deepest sympathies. Hollie was an amazing person and I was lucky to have known her. Thank you for bringing someone one like her into this world. She was
able to make a deeply positive impact in many peoples lives.

To the Beard Family,
My name is Riley Glover. I was at Heritage from April 05 until February 07. I don't know if any of you will get the chance to read this, but I hope you do. I doubt anyone will ever be able to grasp how big of an impact Hollie made on those around her. I may not have known her outside of Heritage, except after I left, but while I was there she made everything so much easier to deal with. She was like my rock. I felt as if i could talk to her more than any other staff because she was so easygoing and laidback. I don't know what she told you about Heritage, but we have levels. Every Wednesday I would run up to her after school saying " Hollie Hollie, did I get my level?!" Everytime, without fail, she would give me her mysterious little smile and say " I don't knowwww, you'll just have to wait and see." She would do special little things for us too, to try and make it more like home for us. Last October, she and another staff member took myself and two other girls off campus to a haunted maze. I hid behind her almost the whole time with my eye's shut, just grabbing onto her while she lead me through. That's what she did though. She helped lead
people in the right direction. When I was on the verge of a breakdown, she sat with me and hugged me while I cryed. It's little things like that, the things she didn't even think twice about doing, that made me love and appreciate her even more. I know she's watching over us, smiling. Everything'll be okay. Good luck with everything. Know that she was loved and she was missed. Thanks for letting me get this out. Remembering her at her best makes it easier to cope with.

I feel obligated as a Christian and as a friend of Malia L., to say sorry for your loss.
My friend Malia feels the pain, so that means I too, share it a little. I did not know Hollie, but from what Malia tells me, and what I’ve read she sounded like a good person.
Again, I am so sorry.

Well, I knew Cassie before I knew Hollie, but Hollie was one of the most funny, and very supportive people at the treatment center I was at. Whenever I got put on her unit or passed by, she would always help me or support in any way... She is amazing...
I loved that when she entered the room I always felt happier, and she is a great person...
She helped me and my friends at my treatment center... she really was a very outstanding person...
I send my sympathy... you will be missed, Hollie...

Dear Winston, Carolyn and family,
It has been years, Winston, since I have seen you or your brother, but when I saw Hollie's picture and read the obituary in the paper, I just had to write your family a note. I know that all of you are so heart-broken, and I am so sorry. It sounds like she was a very accomplished, loving daughter! My husband, Clint, and I have six grown children, all married with 27 grandchildren. We live in South Ogden, but raised them in Vernal, Utah where he was coaching and counseling.


debbie
aunt carolyn & uncle winston,
What a beautiful girl Holly grew up to be; remember this as a celebration of her life, not death. Death is just another door open, one closed. This young niece, aunt, daughter, touched the lives of so many in the short time she was here; but older in her years, she gave more than any could give with her heart , beauty, and talent. Heritage is a challenge. She devoted herself to the ones that needed her the most. A special girl with a special heart that laughed and loved and gave life it's all. To give to animals and children that are in need with an open heart will never ever be forgotten. She is an angel. So sorry lost touch with you. I hope that you remember me and my kids we love you and miss the family reunions with grandma Childs and all the kids running around eating thanksgiving dinner together. The time I came and stayed with Christy at your home,
Carolyn, this little girl carried on with her love like her mother... unselfishness and devotion to those who needed her the most. You, Carolyn, touch many lives. Taking girls in, giving them a chance. Holly, just like her mother had the same gift of devotion, what a blessing and joy. Celebrate her life and legacy you'll all be together again. Hope this angel will be there waiting welcoming us all home.
Love, Debbie Marshall, Carter and kids and my little grand babies.

Hello Carolyn B. and family,
I recently heard about the loss of your precious daughter, and wanted to express to you my deepest condolences. Carolyn, I was thinking of all sweetest possible people, it had to be you and yours to undergo this tragic event . . . . Although I cannot begin to imagine what you have gone through in the past weeks, my heart goes out to you.
Anything you and yours may need from me, do not hesitate to ask. My wife and I will be in Los Angeles for awhile - I've finished for the most part with the DMA, but there are a number of great opportunities that will keep us here in the sunshine State for a while longer. I will be up in Idaho for Christmas and hopefully we can say hello then.
Take care,
Aaron McClaskey
