Holly worked at Cooper’s Seafood Restaurant for over 20 years. Making many lifelong friends. She was honored to serve President and Mrs. Clinton when they visited the restaurant. In retirement, Holly enjoyed working at Fabulous Finds of all Kinds, indulging in her love of yard sales, flea markets and “old stuff”. She always found a way to help as many people in her community as possible; charity motorcycle rides, placing flags on veteran’s graves, anytime help was needed Holly was there.
She especially enjoyed spending time with her grandson Cole and his dog Gus. She absolutely loved to watch Cole wrestle.
Forkston held a special place in Holly’s heart. She was thrilled to spend much time there in the past few years at the cabin with her family. Her wish is to have her ashes spread in Forkston in the places most dear to her.
Per Holly’s wishes, there will be no calling hours or services. A Celebration of Life will be held at Blakely Primitive Methodist Church, 313 1ST Street, Blakely on January 9, 2022 at 9:45 AM.
