2011 - 2022

Lydia Margaret Jolly was born December 16, 2011 to R.J. and Margaret Jolly, in Denver, Colorado.

From the moment she entered our lives, she was a source of joy and laughter. Lydia carried her cross in this life with an enormous amount of happiness. Even on her tough days, she never complained, and only wanted everyone to be as happy, silly, and full-of-life as she was. Lydia had the most understanding and patient best friend, in her older sister, Emma Sophia.

Lydia loved when Emma read her books, rode the carousel, played dolls, and had tea parties. Lydia entered into eternity on August 8, 2022, in the loving embrace of her parents, with a final blessing from Fray Leon. Pray for us, O Holy Mother of God. That we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ. Lydia was preceded in death by her sister Madeleine Hornung, Uncles Joe Jolly and Erwin Grinnan, and Grandfathers George Patrick Jolly and Joseph Grinnan. Lydia is survived by her parents Margaret and R.J. Jolly and her sister Emma Jolly.
