Agnes Marie Holloway went peacefully to be with her Heavenly Father on
January 6, 2023. She was born on October 13, 1927, at her family home near Mexhoma, Oklahoma, where she later married her husband and best friend, Lloyd Julius Holloway.
Marie attended country schools until she enrolled at Texas Tech in Lubbock, Texas at age 16. She graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Foods & Nutrition.
She and Lloyd moved to Cimarron County, where they farmed, ranched, and raised their children. Marie was a long-time member of the First Baptist Church in Boise City, where she taught children’s Sunday School and sponsored the Girls Auxiliary (GAs) for many years. She also sang in the church choir and served the Lord faithfully all her life.
Marie went on seventeen Mission Trips to Mexico and was a long-time devoted supporter of Reaching Souls International. She raised a large garden each summer and on occasion, drove a tractor and grain truck. She taught several of her children to operate a tractor while Lloyd was otherwise occupied on the farm/ranch. She routinely delivered hot gourmet meals to family members operating farm machinery along with the obligatory gallon of sweet, iced tea. She dropped the tailgate of the family station wagon, spread a tablecloth, and laid out a spread of amazing homegrown and cooked food.
She is survived by her sons, Steven Holloway and wife, Cynthia of Edmond, Oklahoma: Stanley Holloway and wife, Stephanie of Amarillo, Texas and Foster Holloway and wife, Deena of Henderson, Nevada; son-in-law, Roger McKinnon of Guymon, Oklahoma: eleven grandchildren: Stephanie Fischer and husband Byron; Cameron McKinnon; Courtney Kilgore and husband, Trey; Jennifer Lachance and husband, Tony; Tabron Holloway; Tyler Holloway and wife, Andrea; Trey Holloway and wife, Megan; Aspen Green and husband, Andrew; Skyler Holloway; Sierra Holloway and Summer Holloway; twelve great-grandchildren: Carlie McKinnon; Aubrey Kilgore; Kaden Kilgore; Addison Kilgore; Leona Lachance; Loretta Lachance; Finis Lachance; Logan Holloway; Hamilton Green; Walter Green; Davy Green and Loretta Green.
Marie is preceded in death by her husband, Lloyd Holloway; daughter, Janell McKinnon; parents, Charles Ross & Agnes Moore; sisters, Margarite Biaggi; Ida Bawcom; Rebecca Nichols and Lucille Singletary and brothers, Charles Moore and Jack Moore.
A loving wife and mother; devoted Christian, student of the Bible, and faithful servant to her community and church—her presence will be missed but her spirit will live on in the hearts of all who knew her.
Graveside services will be at 1:30 P.M., Monday, January 9, 2023, at Boise City Cemetery in Boise City, Oklahoma. Arrangements are by Boxwell Brothers Funeral Directors, Amarillo.
