Holly Sutherland Obituary

In Loving Memory of
Holly Rose Katherine Sutherland
February 2nd, 1998 – October 15th, 2023

Holly was an amazing daughter, mother, sister, niece, auntie, cousin, and friend. Her beautiful, gentle, and kindred spirit led her to live her life joyfully. Holly devoted her life to being a fantastic mother to the one person she cherished, her daughter, Arianna. Holly’s beauty shone through, and her contagious laughter lit up the room and lifted spirits. She will be fondly remembered for her witty sense of humour with elegant and quick comebacks. 
While growing up, Holly attended public school in Thunder Bay and high school in Wiikwemikoong. Holly was an outstanding athlete who loved playing hockey, playing defense at the Little NHL tournaments, and soccer. Her above average academic abilities made her a regular honour student. Holly’s artistic talents led to her artwork being displayed in a professional journal and on Lakehead University Christmas cards. She continued to hone her artistic talents in her makeup artistry, and painting pictures with her baby girl, Arianna. Her talents extended to cooking and baking as well. She and Arianna often created favourite meals together and she loved Grandma Shirley’s porcupine meatballs.  Holly’s connection to art extended to her listening to a variety of music, such as alternative rock, rock, rap, country, and that list goes on and on. 
Holly loved visiting her mom every summer in Thunder Bay as well as spending time with her childhood friends and going to camp on Whitefish Lake. She also loved to be at Sudsy’s camp (a.k.a. dad’s camp) where she and Arianna would spend time swimming, kayaking, and spending time with her friends.
Holly treasured visiting family and creating special memories with them. Holly loved the many Christmas celebrations at her auntie Donna donut’s house in White River, remembered for making midnight snow forts around with her cousin Jessy. To some, Holly was fondly known as “Pumpkin” or “My Little Groundhog”.
Holly was open to new challenges and exploring to find her niche, such as working at Ardene’s to explore fashion and working as an Administrative Assistant with Wiikwemkoong Band.  She was currently engaged in pursuing an
Introduction to Trades course at KTEI.
Holly lived life to the fullest, enjoying time with family and friends.  She will be sadly missed by her daughter, Arianna Rose Marie Sutherland-Trudeau: her mom, Jennifer Genereux-Gernat (Clark);
her dad, Robert Sutherland (Brenda); her brothers, Trent Hawke (Jessica) Shane Flamand, and Brett Hawke (Haylea); her aunties Donna S., Leslie S., Donna G., Heidi G.; her uncles Allan G. and Aaron G.(Alicia); and all of her cousins and many friends.
She is predeceased by grandparents Donald Sutherland, Arlene Sutherland, Donald Genereux, Shirley Vaillant (Fox), her cousin Todd Eaglechild, and her Uncle Todd Genereux.
