Lynn was born to Robbie Holloway on July 2, 1958 in Jim Wells County, Texas and spent many happy moments during her childhood with her loving grandparents, Glenn and Sally Moore.  She graduated from Chireno High School where she served as a member of the school’s pep squad. Later, she became an employee of Chireno ISD serving the district in various positions. Additionally, she was employed at the County Co-Op as a paraprofessional.

There was never a dull moment with Lynn. She was known for always having a project going. In fact, her crafts serve as some of her family’s most treasured possessions.  Handmade table runners, crochet and needlepoint home décor, as well as art projects were her specialty.  As a lover of animals, Lynn enjoyed spending time with her beloved cats. She also enjoyed camping, fishing, and walking along the beach in search of seashells; however, she loved family functions most of all. Family was very important to her, so she cherished these get-togethers with her crew.

On January 20, 2024, Lynn entered eternal rest at Willowbrook Rehab Facility in Nacogdoches, Texas, after a lengthy illness.

She was preceded in death by her mother, Robbie Holloway; grandparents, Glenn and Sally Moore; and grandson, Hunter Reese Jackson.

She leaves to cherish her memory, her children: Taylor Glenn “Jon” Tomlinson (Suzanne), Kristen Nichole Jackson (Jason) and Robert Marshall “Boogie” Butler (Hannah); her grandchildren: Cash Michael Tomlinson, Autumn Piper Jackson, and Hensley Saige Jackson (on the way); siblings: Charlene Nichols (James), Gene Holloway (Gretchen), and Kellye Martin (Joe), and step-father, Harold Holloway.

Pallbearers will be Taylor Glenn “Jon” Tomlinson, Robert Marshall “Boogie” Butler, Jason Jackson, Cash Tomlinson, James Nichols, Jamie Nichols, Corey Sigler, Joey Jackson, Ben Ballard, and Mickey Allen.
