Patricia Holland Obituary
Utah’s Salt Lake City-On July 20, 2023, Patricia Terry Holland, the spouse of Elder Jeffrey R. Holland of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints Quorum of the Twelve Apostles, pἀssed away peacefully. When she pἀssed away, her children and husband were there to comfort her.
She was raised in Enterprise, Utah, where she was born on February 16, 1942, to Maeser and Marilla Terry. Her early years were shaped by the deep pioneer ideals of her ancestors who settled the region, as well as by the enjoyment and hard work of helping at the family farm and store.
She began playing the piano by ear for school musical performances by the third grade, which demonstrated her remarkable musical skill. She relocated to St. George with her family during her first year of high school, ostensibly to accommodate her father’s expanding business.
Actually, the main benefit of that action was that it introduced her to sophomore athlete Jeff Holland, who was intelligent, attractive, dimpled, and overconfident. She immediately won him and the other students over with her generosity, talent, attractiveness, and spirituality.

She let her sweetheart know that it was now his turn to wait for her as she took a year to study voice and piano with Julliard teachers in New York, where she also served as a stake missionary, after waiting for him to fulfill a mission in England.
Patricia and Jeffrey were wed there on June 7, 1963, where three generations of Patricia’s maternal grandparents had also been sealed. Her three children, Matthew, Mary Alice, and David, were the greatest joys of her life.
She joyously committed herself to developing their religion, meeting their needs, assisting with their schooling, encouraging them in their athletic endeavors, teaching them music, and establishing a house where all of their neighbors wanted to visit and stay forever.
She received her education at Brigham Young University, LDS Business College, and Dixie College (Utah Technical University). She was eventually recognized for her remarkable life achievements by each of these institutes.
She served with love and grace as the First Lady of Brigham Young University from 1980 to 1989 and as a First Counselor in the Young Women General Presidency from 1984 to 1986. Her caring and clear leadership had a significant impact on the creation of the Young Women Values.
