Holly, at age 26, was a happy soul who loved to be on the water, fish, hike, and spend time with friends & family. She was finishing her college degree and was ready to make a new start when she tragically lost her life to domestic violence. Holly Hannah Given was a true “conch”, but not just any Conch. Born and raised in the Florida Keys, Holly represented the best and most fruitful parts of our small community of Conchs. Holly was The Coral Shores High School Homecoming Queen, she was voted Best Athlete, she was a honor roll student, an advocate for leadership and community service, she was an avid fisherman, she was a creative soul, she was a best friend to so many of us, and most importantly she was a loving daughter and sister to her parents, Pat and Lucy, and her younger brother, Jack. The loss of Holly hit the heart of the community where she shined so bright. For all of Holly’s family and friends near and far, she unites us all in this moment of time as the pearl of our small town. Holly’s laugh and light will live on each day in the sun that sets over the Florida Bay, she will be the sun that rises over Alligator Lighthouse every morning, she will be the jump of a Sailfish, and the first cold sip of a margarita. Holly will forever be in our hearts as a young woman who lived her life to the fullest and never looked back. Cheers to Holly’s life and beautiful legacy!
Daughter. Sister. Keys Kid.
