Summer James Holveck passed peacefully at home in the arms of her Mommy & Daddy and surrounded by loving family on April 5th, 2023. Her life was devastatingly too short but she made a lasting impact on everyone she touched.
Summer was our sunshine. Named appropriately for the season that brings warmth and happiness to the soul. She adored endless snuggles with her Mom, Sarah, and watching Food Network with Dad, Doug. Summer spent her days listening to music, being held and hearing “I Love You” uncountable times.
Summer is the little sister of Penny, 2.5 years old. Penny & Summer enjoyed arts & crafts together. Making footprints and handprints with paint and exchanging stuffed animals. While Summer may not be by her side, she will forever hold a place in her heart.
Summer was welcomed to Heaven by her Pop-Pop, Doug & best friend, Baby August. Summer was deeply loved by grandparents, Linda Holveck and Ed & Larraine Painter. She was adored by her many Aunts, Uncles, Cousins and friends.
The family of Summer would like to extend heartfelt gratitude to the team of NICU nurses, medical/administrative staff and doctors at Christiana & Nemours with whom Summer spent 40 of her 41 days with.
There will be a memorial reception honoring Sweet Summer to be planned at a later date. For now, the family request any donations be made via Summer’s GoFundMe to raise donations to support other NICU families.
