Rueleen Holladay

August 21, 1940 — June 8, 2016

Rueleen Winter Holladay died on 8 June 2016. She was born Rueleen Joyce Winter on 21 August 1940 to John Reuel Winter and Marjorie May Moore. Her name was suggested by an aunt to remember her father, who died on 1 February 1940, 7 months and 21 days before she was born. Rueleen had an older brother, John Reuel Winter, Jr. (Jack). Her mother remarried 28 September 1945 to Alfred William Johnson. A younger brother, Steven Lynn Johnson was born 25 May 1950. Rueleen married Donald H Goaslind on 15 July 1960, with whom she had three daughters. After being a single mother for 5 years and seeing her 2 older daughters married, Rueleen married Stuart Burnham Holladay on 16 November 1985.

She loved music. She loved to sing, even when health problems took her breath away. She loved small longhaired dogs, shopping (especially getting sidetracked to look at little girls' clothes), traveling to visit her children and grandchildren, and up to a point, camping and motorcycle touring. She loved Yellowstone National Park, and visited frequently, once diverting a return trip from visiting children and grandchildren to go through there.

Rueleen is survived by her husband, Stuart Holladay, daughters Lynda Oakeson (married to Marvin), Christine Kundis (Dean), and Karen Barney (Chris), grandchildren Quin Oakeson, Alicia Oakeson, Andrea Kirby (Jesse), Amanda Oakeson, Joshua Kundis (Hillary), Kevin Kundis (Annie), Garrett Kundis (Sammy), and Matthew Kundis, and great-grandchildren Landon Kundis, Cooper Kundis, Keaton Kundis, Aria Kundis, and Taylee Kirby, and a brother, Steven Johnson.

In lieu of a funeral, a celebration of Rueleen's life is planned for Saturday, 25 June 2016, from 12:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. at the bowery at Canyon View Park, 100 N 600 E, Nephi, UT, a block west of Wendy's. Parking is on the West side of the park.

The family would like to thank the nurses and staff of Heritage Hills Rehabilitation and Care Center for their loving care of Rueleen when Stuart could no longer provide the care she needed at home.
