Olive Holmes

    Olive DeLois Holms entered into rest on Thursday, Dec. 14, 2006.  People knew her as Lois, or Toots.  Many called her “Mom” or “Grandma”.  Some just knew her as another of those stubborn Freeman’s.
    March 12, 1925, she was the 4th of 15 children, born to Clarence and Johnnie Freeman.  When she grew up, she married and had 10 children of her own.  She worked for many years and retired from the J.R. Simplot Company in Caldwell.
    Lois loved the outdoors; hunting, fishing, camping were some of her favorite past-times.
    Lois is survived by six brothers, and four sisters.  She is also survived by four sons, and her only daughters.  She has many grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
    She is preceded in death by three brothers, one sister and five children.
