Obituary for Holly Annette Boshears

MICHIGAMME, MI – Holly Annette Boshears, age 59, of Michigamme, entered eternal life Tuesday, October 24, 2017, in the loving care of her family.
Born July 30, 1958, in Torrance, California, a daughter of John and Susan Opperman, Sr., Holly graduated from Pacifica High School. She went on to study at Pacifica Career Academy of Cosmetology and worked for a short time as a beautician before pursuing a career in banking. She resided in Anaheim where she was employed at a local bank. Holly married George Boshears while he was serving in the US military in California and the couple later moved to Michigamme where they made their home and raised their familiy. Holly was employed for many years at the Michigamme Market. She was gentle, caring, and willing to help out whenever possible. She had a good sense of humor, often at times when she wasn't aware she was being funny. In her leisure moments, she liked to crochet. Her biggest joy was her children, grandchildren and animals. She was a very special person and will be greatly missed.
Holly is survived by her husband, George Boshears; her children, Curtis (Katie) Boshears, Nic (Lindsey) Boshears, and Jennifer (Tony) Sites; grandkids, Ethan, Austin, Josh, Reece, Ryland, Damien, Hayden, and Charli; a brother, John Opperman, Jr; sister, Susan Padilla; step-father, Herman Van Vuran; father-in-law, Willis Boshears; sisters-in-law, Rona (Bob) Cardew and Rhonda Boshears; brother-in-law, Charles (Vicky) Boshears.
Special thanks to Bob and Rona Cardew who welcomed Holly and her family into their home and also to Marti Querfeld who always loved and supported her.
