MANSFIELD — Elizabeth Fisher Holloway, 86, of 570 W. Third St., Mansfield, died of cancer on Monday, May 24, 2004, at her home.
She was born Dec. 21, 1917, in Morrow County, she was the daughter of Clayton and Almeda Lee Fisher. After marrying Richard B. Holloway on New Year’s Eve 1936, she moved with her husband to Richland County and lived the rest of her life in Mansfield. Richard preceded her in death in 1993. A devoted Christian, Elizabeth had been a member of Central United Methodist church for over 60 years. Elizabeth’s family is comforted by knowing that her faith in Christ means that her death is not the end, nor a time of darkness, but rather is the light at the dawning of a new day.
Elizabeth was the loving mother of daughters, Elizabeth Jean Myers and Beverly Charlene (Robert) Hutchison of Mansfield, and sons, R. Philip Holloway of Mansfield and Richard Stanley (Pamela Lewis) Holloway of Belews Creek, N.C.
Elizabeth’s family, friends and various community organizations were all blessed by her servant’s heart. She believed in the missions of the United Methodist Church, EMPAC and The Store, and used her talents to support and enhance those missions.
Her love of music and gardening were evident to all who knew her. Her children and grandchildren share those passions and are thankful for Elizabeth exposing them to a special beauty they have found in their own gardens and music.
Elizabeth definitely believed your mind determined your age, not your body. Up until the end, her mind pushed her body to keep going … day trips with friends, bridge clubs that helped keep her mind sharp, Mansfield Tyger basketball and football games where her spirit rivaled that of the students. She loved her life and she lived it to the fullest.
In addition to her daughters and sons she is survived by six sisters and a brother, Gladys (Robert) Mayer of Florida, Martha (Jack) McPeek of Mount Gilead, Dorothy Davis of Johnson City, Tenn., Evelyn (Ken) Young of Ashley, Ernestine Bland, Joan (Robert) McCarty, Leroy (Jane) Fisher of rural Marengo. One sister, Maxine Hubbard preceded her in death.
She is also survived by grandchildren, Greg Koser and Alan Koser, Todd Myers and Cheryl Myers of Mansfield, April (Hutchison) Luedy and Elizabeth Hutchison of Mansfield, David Hutchison of California, G. Erin Holloway of Virginia and L. Rachel Holloway of Columbus, Heather (Holloway) Pitts, Jody Holloway and Brittney (Holloway) Bray of North Carolina; foster grandchildren, Todd Roberts, Freda Williams, Pam Brown and Tina Roberts; former daughter-in-law, Anita Kmetz Holloway; and dear friend, Rachel Morkel. Elizabeth was blessed to have 12 great-grandsons and 14 great-granddaughters. Numerous nieces and nephews from both the Fisher and Holloway families added greatly to the richness of Elizabeth’s life.
Friends may call Friday from 2 to 4 and 6 to 8 p.m. at Herlihy-Tinsman-Moleno Funeral Home, 173 Park Ave. West, Mansfield. A celebration of Elizabeth’s life will be held Saturday at 1 p.m. at the First Congregational Church. The Rev. David Root will lead the service. Interment will be in Mansfield Memorial Park.
