Obituary for Holly Cornell Bassett

Mother-in-Law of Poul Lemasters, OFDA Member

Holly Cornell Bassett, passed away peacefully surrounded by the people she loved the most on Thursday, July 28, 2022, at the age of 79. She was born on December 29, 1942, to the late Alden and Marian Bassett. She is survived by her loving children, Shelby (Poul) Lemasters and Michael (Gladybell) Kieser, as well as her adored grandchildren, Bella, Ryan, Max and Chloe. Being Mimi and grandma to her grandchildren was the greatest joy of her life and she would be with them whenever she got the chance.

Holly was the bravest woman her family has ever known. With every challenge life threw at her, she faced them head on; fiercely strong and graceful. She was very proud to have worked her way up the corporate ladder and became the executive assistant to the vice president of legal at Mercy Health Partners for many years.

Holly loved life and the finer things in it, and she learned about life through her fascination and curiosity, which lead her to be a world traveler taking her to countless places all over the world. Her eagerness to learn about different places and people brought her so much happiness! It was this happiness that she shared with everyone. She will be greatly missed because she was deeply loved.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be given to one of Holly's favorite charities - The LC Coat Drive, 3644 Werk Rd. #58413, Cincinnati, OH 45258. This charity is run by her daughter and son-in-law to provide new winter coats to children in need.
