Linda Holladay

Linda Holladay

Linda Holladay, of Belle Plaine, passed away at her home on August 3, 2019. Her final weeks and days were spent surrounded by family. Though her life was shortened by ocular melanoma, the impact she made on those around her will be a lasting one.
There will be a memorial service for Linda on Saturday, August 17 at Hillcrest United Methodist Church located at 9100 Russell Ave South, Bloomington, MN 55431. Visitation will begin at 9 a.m., with the memorial service at 10:30 a.m., followed by lunch at 11:30 a.m.
Linda was a selfless person in all aspects of the word, always thinking of others before herself, even up to the day she died. She kept a positive attitude throughout and her faith in God never wavered.
Linda was born in Wauseon, Ohio on March 15, 1952 to Kenton and Marilyn Deily. She grew up the oldest of seven children and thoroughly enjoyed being a part of a large family. She left home to attend Ambassador College in Big Sandy, Texas where she met the love of her life Charles Holladay.
Linda and Charles married in 1976 and were blessed with four children. They moved around the country before eventually settling in Belle Plaine.
Linda attended Living Grace Church where she enjoyed playing hymns on the piano. She also enjoyed tending to her flowers and absolutely loved spending quality time with family, most notably, her grandchildren.
Linda is survived by her loving husband of 43 years, Charles Holladay; daughters, Kari (Dylan) Valliere and Julie (David) Wuggazer; sons, Andy (Tara) Holladay and Steven (Amy) Holladay; eight grandchildren (soon to be nine); siblings, Jo Ellen (Larry) Mavis, Greg Deily, Karen (David) Lintz, Wendy Karcher, Jeff Deily, Connie (Randy) Roberts; and 28 nephews and nieces.
Linda is preceded in death by parents, Kenton and Marilyn Deily; and daughters, Lindsey and Erin Holladay.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the ocular melanoma foundation. Linda’s donation page can be found at the following web address: www.ocularmelanoma.org/linda-holladay
