Frances LoAnn Holliday of Edmond, Oklahoma, died peacefully at home surrounded by her dearest friends. She was born on February 13, 1933 in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma to the late Francis Ray Holliday and Martha Lee Holliday. She is survived by a cousin, Cherrabeth Carnahan, a niece, Lisa Carnahan Epperson, her great neice, Lindsey, great nephews, Ehren and J. D. Epperson, three generations of her adopted family, the Forresters’ of Edmond, and none more cherished than her best friends, Jan and Robert Bettis and Family. Last, but certainly not least, a very special thank you to Jeremy and Debbie Thompson for taking such wonderful care of LoAnn the last few months of her life. Because of them LoAnn was able to live comfortably at home until her passing.
Following High School graduation LoAnn went to work as a clerk at First Security Bank on N.E. 23rd Street in Okla. City. She reluctantly retired 55 years later. She was an active member of the Wilshire Blvd Church of Christ. LoAnn was a “Dog Lover’s” dog lover. Her pets ruled the house and she would have it no other way. She kept a large bag of dog food in her car trunk. If she ever came across a stray dog on her way to work, she would see that it was taken care of. LoAnn was an avid sports fan. She loved Thunder Basketball and OU football. However, nothing compared to her love for the OU Women’s basketball team. For years she never missed a game. She knew the coaches and players well … and they knew her by name (her biggest thrill).
When she retired from the bank the president gave her an all expense paid trip for two to anywhere in the World.
Where did she choose go? San Antonio, Texas to watch the OU women’s basketball team play in the NCAA Final four.
Services will be held on Friday, November 14th, at 11:30 A. M. at Matthews Funeral Home in Edmond.
