Alvina Holz was born May 16, 1920, at Plymouth, Nebraska, to Casper and Louise (Pittnauer) Vorderstrasse. She married William “Bill” Holz on October 13, 1940, at Peace Lutheran Church near Plymouth, Nebraska. Bill preceded her in death in 2011, after 71 years of marriage. She was a member of Holy Trinity Lutheran Church since 1958.
In 1958, she and Bill moved to Sidney where she continued to be a quiet, patient and loving wife, mother and homemaker. Her favorite activities centered around quilting, baking, and gardening, skills she had mastered as a result of having been the oldest of eight children. Besides duties as a caretaker for her brothers and sisters, she helped in the fields driving horses during harvest.
Alvina cared passionately and unconditionally for her husband, children, grandchildren and great grandchildren. Her strength, patience and love were reflections of her strong faith and love of God, which she lived daily.
Survivors include son Larry and wife Jan (Brock) Holz of Alliance, Nebraska, daughter Linda (Holz) and husband John Lindsey of Norman, Oklahoma, six grandchildren, twelve great grandchildren, sister Hulda Scheiding of Blue Hill, Nebraska, sister Leoda Yost of Crete, Nebraska, sisters-in-law Lois Vorderstrasse of Seward, Nebraska and Joan Vorderstrasse of Fairbury, Nebraska and many nieces and nephews.
She was preceded in death by her parents, husband, infant daughter, Diane, five brothers, ten sisters-in-law and nine brothers-in-law.

We grew up across the street from Bill and Alvina. We have very fond memories of going to Sunday School with them and they always had time to sit out on the front steps to watch us play and to visit. Deepest sympathy to their family

We sat in front of them (Bill and her) at church every Sunday and enjoyed them so much. Bill worked on our cars for years too.
Beautiful couple and so pleasant to be around. God's Blessing on all of Alvina's family and sending our sympathy to all.
