Listen to this obituary
Rosa Lee Holloway Wells, 81, of Verona, passed away Saturday, August 29, 2020 at Magnolia Regional Health Center in Corinth. She was born January 17, 1939 to Lois and Bernie Towery Holloway. She loved to cook, and she loved to feed people even more. Whether you dropped by unannounced or you attended a large family dinner, you never left there hungry and you “butter believe” it was always amazing.
She loved freshly painted pink fingernails, pink lipstick, silk pajamas, roses, spending way too much time in Walmart, and reading magazines “for recipes, not gossip of course”. Above all else, she loved Jesus and had unwavering faith. A close second was her family. She was a beloved and devoted mother, grandmother, great-grandmother and a loyal friend to many (as long as she didn’t have to keep a secret because she never quite figured that out).
She was charming, sassy, and funny; always trying to make everybody laugh with a new joke she heard. She loved making memories and if you knew her, you probably have at least one great story to tell. She had compassion for everyone she met and would always be the first to offer help to anyone that needed it. She was truly selfless with a generous spirit. She was even more beautiful on the inside than out, she was one of a kind.
Funeral service is at 1:00 PM Monday, August 31, 2020 with Bro. Richard Anglin “Bud” officiating at Lee Memorial Funeral Home. Burial will be in Lee Memorial Park
