1928 – 2016
Dorothy H. Holland, a longtime resident of the La Crescenta area, died Sunday, May 1. She was born in 1928 in Chicago, Illinois. After graduating from Broad Ripple High School in 1946 in Indianapolis, Indiana, she moved to California and received a degree in electrolysis from Los Angles Trade-Technical College.
Dorothy was a devout student of Science of Mind and an avid reader. In her younger years she loved to roller skate and bowl. After her travels abroad to London, Paris and Rome, she discovered her calling in the cosmetology field focusing her study in electrolysis. Shortly after her return to the United States, she became a certified electrologist.
Dorothy enjoyed going to movies and Broadway shows with family, and had a wonderful smile that could light up a room.
She is survived by her daughter Valerie Holland; son Robert Holland; grandchildren Garrit Vermeer and Bryce Vermeer; great grandchildren Jace, Teagan and Samantha, who brought great joy to her later years.
