Joyce M. Holloway

Joyce M. Holloway died March 7, 2008, peacefully at home in Glenwood Springs.

She was born March 26, 1922 in a small farmhouse in upstate New York to Leo and Amy McCarthy. She and her sisters and brother grew up in towns all over upstate New York.

Joyce worked for the Postmaster General in Washington, D.C. Following World War II, she was assigned to Berlin as part of the Army of Occupation. Joyce often spoke of the incredible destruction of Berlin.

During her assignment in Berlin, Joyce was able to tour Europe. She always talked about her audience with the Pope.

Joyce married Larry Holloway February 22, 1952. They settled in Washington D.C. and had two children.

One of the things she enjoyed was producing and directing Christmas plays at home for the whole neighborhood. The Christmas parties she and Larry threw are remembered to this day.

After Larry retired, they moved back to Larry’s boyhood home in Glenwood Springs.

Joyce’s favorite activity in Glenwood was to go to the pool every single day, visiting with friends there and taking every exercise class that Annig Raley taught.

She is survived by her husband; children Linda and Craig Holloway; as well as cousins, nieces and nephews.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests contributions be made to Roaring Fork Hospice, P.O. Box 1970, Glenwood Springs, 81602.

Services will be held at 10 a.m. Wednesday, March 12, at Saint Stephen’s Catholic Church in Glenwood Springs.
