On Friday, 18th of June, Holly and her two children moved from Perth back to Townsville to be closer to her family.
On Tuesday, 22nd of June Holly drove her mums car to Ingham to visit a friend. On the way back to Townsville she became stuck in a 2.5km queue of traffic waiting at a fatal traffic accident that occured at 6.30pm. Holly's parents Jim and Erica Stewart were looking after Holly's children aged 5 and 3. They had put them to bed, and were in contact with Holly while she was waiting at the traffic queue. At approximately midnight, Hollys vehicle was struck by a Landcruiser at high speed which destroyed her vehicle and the vehicle infront of her, tragically killing Holly and another young person.
At approx 3am on Wednesday, 23rd June, Jim and Erica received the dreaded news that their daughter was gone and the children had been left without a mother.
