Holly attended Red Cloud School from 1st grade to 7th grade, then finished her senior year at Pine Ridge High School where she graduated in 1980. She then enrolled at SIPI Technical College in the Southwest, there she earned her Secretarial Degree.
Holly worked numerous years for the Special Education Program for O.S.T. She was also employed with the JIPA Program and Prairie Wind Casino.
Holly gave birth to her two beautiful children, Sheena Marie Mousseau and Charles Edward Belt. Holly was well known for being a well outspoken woman. She would tell you like it was and did not care who you were.
Holly was the life of every gathering; she was loved by so many. One year she went to a Halloween party dressed as a hot dog. Sissy was somewhat like “Blanche” on the Golden Girls, no one was prettier or sexier than her, that’s why she was known as “Sexy Gram.” Now our “Sexy Gram” will shine down on us with the rest of the gang. We will always love and miss you, Holly Ann.
