Holly Lanel Rush was born on December 17, 1966, in Omaha, Nebraska to George and Gloria Pospisil.  She grew up in Omaha and was known for her intelligence and thoughtfulness.  Holly was beautiful, gentle, kind, and such a light to everyone she met.  Holly excelled in Dance and Cheer growing up, and she graduated from Central High School in 1985 with the honor of Homecoming Queen.

Holly then went on to continue her education at the University of Nebraska Omaha where she graduated in 1989.  She proceeded to continue her education further at the University of Nebraska Medical Center to pursue her doctorate where she graduated in 1992 as a Doctor of Pharmacy.  After earning her doctorate, Holly started her career at Florence Home Pharmacy followed by four other pharmacies. When the pandemic arrived, she started her own pharmacy named HRX pharmacy.

Holly married Corey Rush in 1996 and had her daughter, Carli Rush, in 2001.  Life gave her the blessing of being married to Corey for 25 years and to see her daughter reach the age of 20.  Some of Holly’s favorite things were to have a glass of wine and watch the sunset at her lake home in North Bend along with her family and her dog, Graham.

She was preceded in death by her parents, George and Gloria Pospisal.  Holly is survived by husband, Corey; daughter, Carli Rush; sister, Lisa Butrous; and many other loving friends.

    Corey, my deepest sympathies to you and your family. My thoughts are with you. Please reach out if I can help in any way. Find peace in all your wonderful memories and know that someday they will bring you great comfort.

    Words fail to express my sympathy for your loss. These words are not mine, although I feel they are appropriate “Do not think of me as gone. I am with you still in each new dawn.”

    Rest in peace. May God comfort your family and help them through this difficult time.

    Corey. I’m absolutely heartbroken for you and Carli! I remember your wedding like it was yesterday. She brightened every room she walked into. I’m so sorry.

    I knew Holly in junior high and high school. She was the kindest girl in our class. My deepest condolences to her family. A bright light has been extinguished too soon.

    Holly is the most special, beautiful light that God gifted so, so many of us. I am so very sorry. I know her spirit dwells within you both. Holly blessed everyone she came in contact with—I am honored to have known her.
