The Story

Holly Dorst, beloved wife, mother, sister, and daughter, died unexpectedly at home on July 3rd, 2015. She touched the lives of many Laramie residents, first through her work at the Albany County Safe Project and then for more than twenty years in private practice as a Licensed Professional Counselor. Since retiring several years ago, and despite chronic health problems, Holly traveled widely with her husband and loved spending days at home experimenting in her kitchen. She enjoyed expressing herself artistically and was an avid reader and writer, with many areas of interest. Anyone with the good fortune to have known Holly is aware that the world has lost a generous and compassionate spirit. Her sense of humor, wry and playfully wicked, endeared her to everyone. Above all, she was a wise and loving woman, a deeply nurturing mother, and a bottomless well of friendship and understanding to her husband of more than 40 years. A public memorial is being planned for September, 19th, 2015. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Holly’s favorite charity, Heifer International at www.heifer.org.
