The mother of a woman who died by suicide has penned a moving obituary in hopes of raising mental health awareness.
On May 17, Chaylie Holmgren, a 28-year-old mother-of-three from Logan, Utah died by suicide. Holmgren’s mother, Mindi K. Hoggan and her cousin, Lisa B. McKinney, honoured Holmgren’s memory by writing a heartbreaking obituary addressing the “silent epidemic” of mental health.
To all who knew her, Holmgren was a “vivacious, loyal, spunky and strong-willed, kind and tenacious with a loving and gracious spirit.”
The mother of 10-year-old Londyn, 6-year-old Braykin and 2-year-old Brixton was described by Hoggan as “the epitome of a mama bear”
