Holly was a faithful member of Effingham First Christian Church for over 60 years, where she served as a deaconess and as church historian. In addition, she served on various committees through the years. Most importantly, Holly had a life-long love and devotion to her husband and family. She was the best wife, mother and “Ma-Maw” that anyone could ask for! She enjoyed playing cards, fishing, cooking, and rocking her “little ones.” She was looking forward to her heavenly mansion, and her legacy will live on through her family forever.
She was preceded in death by her parents; brothers, Max Landrus and Harold Landrus; and son-in-law, Craig Dixon.
The family would like to thank all who helped care for Holly. A special thanks to her nurse, Pam Bergfeld.
