Lucille V. Hollaway

RADFORD, Va. — Lucille V. Hollaway, age 96, of Radford, Va., passed away Friday, May 24, 2013 at Radford Health and Rehab Center.

She was born March 11, 1917 in Bingham, Maine. She moved to Peterstown, W.Va. after World War II as a young bride and lived there until five years ago when she relocated to Radford, Va. to be near her son and his family. She enjoyed good health and an active life until a few weeks ago. She was a member of the Peterstown United Methodist Church, was active in the United Methodist Women and was a Communion Steward for many years. After moving to Radford, she attended Christ’s Church Radford.

Lucille was preceded in death by her husband, Emory V. Hollaway in September 1978.

She is survived by three daughters, Joy Hollaway of Radford, Sue Jones and husband Mike of Peterstown, W.Va., and Jane Hale and husband Ralph of Marshville, N.C.; one son, E.V. “Butch” Hollaway and wife Sharon of Radford; four grandchildren, Shane Jones of Peterstown, W.Va., Melanie Coleman and husband Curtis of Radford, Va., Jason Bryant and wife Sonya of Gastonia, N.C., and Nikki McGregor and husband Mike of Radford, Va.; five great-grandchildren, Sean Bishop of Narrows, Va., Kendal Hines, McKenzie Kellison, Adam and Whitney McGregor all of Radford, Va.

She was an amazing lady, who loved her family and devoted her life to them. She was generous to a fault. She loved all holidays, especially Christmas. She was an avid reader, loved to play rummy, had a delightful sense of humor and still had that “Yankee” accent from her youth. She will be missed.

A Memorial Service will be held at 11:00 a.m., Tuesday, May 28, 2013 at the Peterstown United Methodist Church with Pastors Jim Malick and Scott Sears officiating. The family will receive friends on Tuesday, from 10:00 a.m. until 11:00 a.m. at the church.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations of sympathy be made to her favorite charity, The American Cancer Society, American Cancer Society, P.O. Box 22718, Oklahoma City, OK 73123-1718 or at
