Bette L. Holloway
Aug. 10, 1922 - Nov. 11, 2012

Mrs. Bette Lou Holloway, 90, of Rochester, passed away Sunday, Nov. 11, 2012, at Life Care Center, Rochester.

Bette was born on Aug. 10, 1922, in North Manchester, the precious daughter of Jesse and Crilla Wehrley Priser. Growing up, she attended the Manchester schools and graduated from Manchester High School in 1940. 

On Dec. 14, 1941, Bette and George Dale Holloway were married. Together they brought into the world 2 handsome sons, Jeff and Randy. Over the years, two grandchildren, Dani and Nick were added to the family tree. 

Primarily a stay at home mom, Bette took great pride and joy with caring for her family and raising her sons. Later, some might remember her as a customer service representative at the Sears Catalogue Store on north Main Street in Rochester. Bette was a thoughtful, caring and compassionate friend to all of those who knew her. 

A dynamic couple, you hardly saw Bette without George. Their life of over seven decades together is a testament of their love and devotion to each other. It wasn't long ago that they were often seen floating across the dance floor at the Elks and the Moose Lodges, cutting a rug, giving Fred and Ginger a run for their money. Her ice blue eyes glistened as she enjoyed every step of the way.

Bette is lovingly remembered by her husband of nearly 71 years, George; two sons, Randall J. Holloway, of Rochester, and Jeffrey D. Holloway and wife Carol, of Puerto Vallarta, Mexico; one granddaughter, Danielle Holloway; and one grandson, Nicholas Holloway.

She was preceded in death by her parents.

Private family services are on Friday, celebrating the life of Mrs. Bette Lou Holloway at the Good Family Funeral Home, Rochester, with Pastor Maurice Grindle officiating.

Interment will be in the Rochester IOOF Cemetery.

Memorials may be made to Grace United Methodist Church or Hope Hospice of Fulton County.
