Grace Ann Hollaway was born as the second child of Dorothy and Tom Hollaway in Houston on October 26, 1961. Grace Ann would go on to live in Houston her whole life, until moving to Tyler County two years ago.
Grace Ann had a profound love for the finer things in life-that which is feminine and beautiful. The color pink, roses, and diamonds were favorites of Grace. She loved to shop for clothing, shoes and jewelry, finding a great joy in adorning herself with lovely items. She was the type of person who could find a true jewel in a sea of tarnished rhinestones. Grace possessed a discerning eye for beauty. Family and friends have felt this in Grace Ann's ability to give considerate gifts. She knew how to pick out the perfect thing for each person.
Grace Ann was voted "Most Beautiful" in high school and remained beautiful throughout her life. She has also maintained several lifelong friendships. She had a strong desire to care for animals as pets and people through her nursing profession. After graduating high school, Grace Ann attended Houston Baptist University. With her degree, she worked as a nurse in the Cardiac OR for many years.
Grace Ann is survived by her brother, Danny Hollaway, her mother, Dorothy Lee Butler. She brought two beautiful children into the world. Texanna Rose McCrevey and Sterling Mann McCrevey are a blessing to their grandmother, Dorothy, as well as all of their aunts, uncles, and cousins.
Funeral service will be held Tuesday, June 21, 2022, at 11 am at the Riley Funeral Home Chapel. Burial will follow at the Camp Ground Cemetery in Woodville, Texas.
Serving as pallbearers will be Ian Hollaway, Beck Hollaway, Jeff Daniels, Dana Daniels, T. Daniels Hollaway, and Rich Oborn.
