Sibyl Loretta Holsted, 93, was born in Chickasha, Okla. in November 1915 and passed June 6, 2009, in Templeton.
The daughter of Jess and Mabel Crews, Sibyl moved to Paso Robles to join her husband, Jim, in 1942 where he was working with her father helping to build Camp Roberts. Sibylís life evolved around many things, her family being number one. She and Jim managed the Oasis Auto Court, north of Paso Robles during World War II while her parents owned and ran the Silver Dome Diner close by.
As the years progressed Sibyl and Jim worked for the Louis Fortini family in the beer distributing business. She later went to work for Safeway and retired after 25 years. Following her retirement, she and Jim purchased Kenís Market on Eighth Street in Paso Robles, which was renamed Holstedís Market. They retired again and enjoyed traveling before settling in Forsythe, Mo. Sibyl and Jim returned to Paso Robles in 1984 to be close to and enjoy their family.
After Jimís passing in 1988, Sibyl remained active in Eastern Star, The Elkettes, Second Milers and Plymouth Circle (where she was always ready to sell you a ticket on their annual Quilt raffle!) Sibyl enjoyed her vacations, trips to Laughlin (always looking to hit the big one) and was ready to go any place anytime.
She is survived by her loving family: son, Ben and wife Judie Holsted of Paso Robles; daughter-in-law, Cyndae Holsted and husband Joe Maraschino of Merced; grandchildren, Todd and wife Vikki Holsted, Suzie and husband Erik Roget, Sandy and husband Kelley McCullough, Craig and wife Rebecca Holsted, Becca and husband Andy Hendrix, Chuck and wife Olivia Suniga and Michelle and husband David Wilder; 10 great-grandchildren; brother, Jess and wife Barbara Crews of Walnut Creek and many nieces and nephews.
Preceding her in death are husband, Jim; son, Lee; parents, Jess and Mable Crews; brother, Johnny; and sister, Mozelle.
A special thank you to the administration and staff at Vineyard Hills Health Center in Templeton, and to Dr. Bourghn and his nurse practitioner, Mark Griedal. Your love, care and concern has meant so much to Sibylís family.
