Holly Evelyn Yeoman

February 27, 2023

With very heavy hearts, we announce that on Monday, February 27th, 2023, our sweet daughter, Holly Yeoman, very unexpectedly passed away at the young age of 18. Loving daughter of Chris Yeoman and Julie & Darryl Saari. Cherished sister to Linden, Jared and Jordyn. Adored granddaughter of grandma Gloria Daugharty and predeceased by Papa Jim and Grandma Valerie (“Gaulin”). Very loved by her Aunt Kim & Uncle Chris (“Moose”), Uncle Jeff & Tina, Auntie Victoria, Uncle Brian, cousins Samantha, Matt & Meg, and Audrey & Jonah. And so many close friends and family members.

Holly just graduated from Saunders Secondary School and was enrolled to attend Fanshawe College in the fall to study baking and pastry arts. She worked part-time at Domino’s Pizza to help contribute to her postsecondary education. Holly got her drivers licence in January, and was so excited to buy herself a car and start her life. She was a creative soul who loved art, music, skiing, travelling and of course, baking. Holly had a quirky sense of humour that made us all laugh, and gave the biggest hugs. She loved ducks, white converse chucks, and the Washington Capitals. Her boyfriend, Caleb, was able to take her to see the Capitals play the Leafs just this past January; she absolutely loved that experience and couldn’t wait to go again. Looking back, it is beautiful to see all her accomplishments and bucket list items come to fruition in just a short time. To say we are going to miss her is an understatement.

Visitation will be held on Thursday, March 9, 2023 and Friday, March 10, 2023, from 2:00 – 4:00 p.m. and 6:00 – 9:00 p.m., at Westview Funeral Chapel, 709 Wonderland Road North, London. Let’s share a memory, a tear, and perhaps a laugh together to grieve and say goodbye to our sweet Holly. Should you wish to consider a donation in Holly’s memory, please consider Ducks Unlimited Canada or the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Canada.

Julie, There are no words to express the enormous weight in my heart for you and your family. I wish there was a way to take some of it away, but I know that is not possible. Trust in "Holly's gifts" and know that they are real and that she is in a wonderful place. I know it will not hurt less but I pray that it does give you moments of peace and in time you will find happiness in remembering all of the cherished moments of her time here with you. You will all be in my thoughts and prayers. Kasey

Chris and Gloria, I am so sad to hear about the loss of your dear daughter and granddaughter. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. Cherish the happy memories.

~ Barb Abel

Julie and family, during this very difficult time there will be hugs, there will be tears. There will be people who don't know what to say and some who can still make you laugh a bit. There will be pictures and keepsakes, memories and stories - some you have never heard and some you can never hear enough. There will be sorrow and there will be celebration but most of all there will be love... the kind that never ends. Your loss is great because your love was great. She will be with you in the paces you go, in the things you do and in your heart. Wishing you comfort in all the memories you shared. Thoughts of deep and sincere sympathy are with you at this time.

~ Corinne Trottier

Holly, you accomplished so much in life - I know, because your mom speaks so highly of you and with such pride and joy. You loved and had been loved. You are and will always be missed by so many. Rest in peace sweet girl. Julie, the beauty of Holly's memory is that you will hold it in your heart forever.

~ Erin Daley

Chris, Linden and family, although I didn’t know Holly personally, Chris, I could see the love you had for her. Every photo you posted, every word you said about your beautiful, special daughter, anyone could see the bond you had. Thinking of you during this most difficult time. She will always be with you. May she rest in peace. X

~ Jessica Fediw

Holly, your love for our Caleb and his for you was inspiring. Two young people with amazingly bright personalities together taking the world on one dream and ambition at a time. Sharing and nurturing each other, growing, maturing - just beginning your life journey. Your short time here on earth made such an impact on so many. Now you grow your wings and serve an even higher purpose. May you rest in peace sweet lady & Gods speed to all your family and friends. May your spirit never dim

~ James & Heidi Lamb

Holly, I’m heart broken beyond words. I love you forever and always. Love Auntie Boo xoxo

~ Erin Stewart

Holly aka my Sunshine, You changed our world the day you were born. The LOVE, laughter, joy, happiness, thoughtfulness and so much more….will be missed. I see you when the sun sets & the sky is your favourite colour blue. Holly - we are so incredibly heartbroken 💔 but we are extremely thankful at the time you had with us in person. Your spirit will live on. Can’t wait to see you again and have my Holly hug 🤗. Love Dad

~ Chris Yeoman

Holly you were one of the sweetest souls I have ever met. You loved Caleb unconditionally and completely. You gave him the strength he needed to grow into the man he has become. He will need that strength even more now that you have transitioned to Heaven. Holly, you have left your eternal imprint on Caleb’s heart and soul. Not many get to experience that level of love and devotion and certainly not before the age of 18. I will say here what I said to you when I said goodbye to you. “thank you baby girl for saving our Caleb’s life - thank you being his angel”. Now you will be eternally his angel - fly high baby girl - we know we will see you again. May your memory always be a blessing just as you were a blessing to us.

~ Gail Martens (Caleb’s Grandma)

Holly, though we weren’t close your mom never failed to tell me all the amazing things you had coming in your future. I know you were a beautiful girl who brought love, light and laughs to everyone who was close to you. I was lucky to know even a piece of who you were. We will see your beautiful soul in the sun rises, in the bright flowers growing in our gardens and In the blue birds chirping in the trees. Fly high beautiful girl 🤍

~ Maddie Daley

Julie, Linden and family, Sending you our deepest condolences for the loss of your daughter and sister Holly. Also sending you a lot of love and healing and we pray that Holly’s memories sustain you during this time. 💕

Rest in peace sweet Holly. Thank you for getting me through Grade 10, and thank you for the constant support. Thank you for simply being yourself, despite everything. You were such a sweet soul, until we meet again❤️

~ Katie Woodcroft

Holly we will miss you always but you brought happiness to your family. Just sorry I wasn’t able to see you one last time. All our hearts are broken by your sudden passing but they will mend when we remember all the good times together. Love you from your auntie and uncle❤️

~ Roberta Seston

My condolences Julie, and your family. Holly's humor was one of a kind, and her laugh even more contagious. I'm grateful to have met her and to have shared so many fond memories with her. Thank you for raising a kind, beautiful, caring and funny girl that I've had the opportunity to call my best friend. Sending your family all the love in the world right now.

~ Sarah H.

No words are enough to bring you back, to ease the pain, to capture your irrepressible spirit. Your laugh. Your humor. Your determination. Your fearlessness. May your spirit find peace - thank you for being you and for giving us great memories to remember and love you forever.

~ Uncle Jeff

I wish that this day never happened my love, you just turned 18 and we starting your life!! You had the most beautiful and elegant smile every day, your magnificent eyes, your adorable laugh and giggle. I will miss hearing that every day baby, I am very honoured I got to be your boyfriend for the last 2 1/2 years and make you the happiest women. I’m really gonna miss our late night talks and staying up to eat food and watch movies, dance around the kitchen and living room. You were the most beautiful, colourful, magnificent kind hearted soul and had the biggest heart to care about people! I will honour you and and make sure your memory stays with me forever. Rest now easy my love and as you were my Angel in this life, I ask you continue to be me angel and watch over me and your family. My beautiful girl, you always have and always will be the most beautiful. I love you so much Holly.

~ Caleb Ayrton

Sweet sweet Holly, I am gutted by the loss. There are no words. I will never forget running around the town house with you playing our silly games , or being excited when you and your brother came over because I got to "babysit" you. I was honored to be a trusted person in your life, who you'd reach out to whenever you needed some "big sis advice." You were such a light in so many peoples lives and your legacy will live on forever. Gone way to soon but never, ever forgotten.

~ Taylor Cromwell

There are no words that will ever express the profound loss of such a sweet soul. We'll never be the same. I so loved being "Auntie Tara" and I'll miss our chats around the kitchen island. Your quirky, silly personality will be a cherished memory for life. Keep talking to your Mom to let her know you're OK. I'll try and honor your memory for the rest of my life. Rest easy sweet Holly. I love you.

~ Tara Cromwell
