Linda Holliman

Linda L. Holliman, age 72, of Waterville, passed away on Saturday, September 25, 2021 at Ascension Via Christi Hospital in Manhattan.

Linda was born May 7, 1949, in Marysville, she is the daughter of Roy W. and Virginia M. (Christensen) Woborny. 

She grew up in the Waterville area and graduated with the first class of Valley Heights High School in 1967. 

She married Pierce A. Holliman on June 30, 1967, in Frankfort Kansas.

Linda was a member of Marysville Christian Fellowship. Her love for others was shown in many ways, spontaneous gifts of love, prayer and words of encouragement. She loved everyone, and treated them all the same. If you needed something and she could get it for you, she made it happen. Her friends and family knew that her sleepless nights were spent in prayer. Her faith in Christ was unwavering. She had an infectious joy that was easily spread to those around with just a smile. She blessed many children and classrooms with school supplies. She loved to feed the birds and the squirrels. She blessed her dogs with the best treats, the best food and the deepest love. She sent care packages to our service men overseas full of snacks, candy, jerky, words of encouragement and appreciation. Linda could be a bit ornery when she wanted, she loved to make people laugh. Her friends and family, especially Pierce, had to keep an eye out for her pranks. Two things were very important to Linda, her love for her Lord and her love for her family and friends.

Survivors include her husband Pierce, two sons: Jimmy Holliman of Waterville and Andrew (Leslie) Holliman of Lawrence, a grandson Santana Holliman of Waterville, four sisters: Cheryl (Bill) Yungeberg of Waterville, Kristin Woborny of Marysville, Mary (Brad) McKeever of Marysville, Marte (Rick) Becker of Galena, Missouri and a brother Chris (Elizabeth) Woborny of Fremont, California, and a sister-in-law Virginia Lee Woborny of Blue Rapids. 

Preceding Linda in death were her parents, a brother Larry Woborny and a sister Clione Billau.
