Kareen Holloway

EARLVILLE — Kareen Grace Holloway, 38, of Earlville passed away Thursday, March 8, 2018, at her home, surrounded by her loving family.

She was born March 30, 1979, in Elmhurst, the daughter of Tom and Nanette (Grundy) Murray. She married Billy Holloway on Aug. 15, 2005, in Princeton.

Kareen was a selfless and compassionate mother of four, three beautiful children here on earth and one angel who greeted her in heaven.

She is survived by her husband, Billy of Earlville; her mother, Nanette Murray of DeKalb; three children, Grace, John Thomas and Jameson; a sister, Sara Murray of DeKalb; a brother, JT (Charlie) Murray of Chicago; her in-laws, Anita and John Kurth of Princeton; a sister-in-law, Lisa Holloway of Princeton; her nieces and nephew, Khelsi, Matthew, Zoe and Morgan; and a multitude of aunts, uncles, cousins and friends that all miss her dearly. Her friends were her family, and her family were her friends.

She was preceded in death by her father, Tom; and her daughter, Georgia Renee.

A Celebration of Life for Kareen will be held at Maple Leaf Park Campground at 1318 US 34 in Earlville on Saturday, March 31, beginning at 11 a.m. In order to ease the burden of preparation for the family, we ask this be a potluck-style event. Please bring food and/or beverages to share with family and friends.

Cremation rites were accorded to Hanley-Turner-Eighner Funeral Home. In lieu of flowers, memorials may be directed to the family at https://gofundme.com/kareenstrong79. For more information, or to sign the online guest book, go to www.EighnerFuneralHomes.com.
