Holly Angela Buell

1981 - 2021


    Holly Angela Buell passed away peacefully in her sleep at the age of 39. 

    She is survived by parents Vance and Shelly Buell of Jackson; sister, Chelsea Buell and nephew, Luke Buell of Monroe, Oregon; grandfather, Corky Buell, as well as her lovingly devoted family and  friends.

    Holly was born in Jackson, Wyoming, where she spent her early childhood before moving to Oregon.  She was stricken ill at the age of sixteen and thereafter relocated back to Jackson, living her remaining years in the peace and tranquility of the valley.

    Holly endured a life altering chronic illness with her kind spirit intact and signature smile shared with everyone she met.

    Her unique life was enhanced by the care and compassion of family and friends, the extraordinary medical community in Jackson, and the friendly staff at the Silver Dollar Bar where Holly enjoyed lunch on weekends.

    A graveside service will be held in the summer followed by a hike into the mountains.
