Eydie Holloway


It is with profound sadness that we share the sudden passing of our beloved Eydie (Morissett) Holloway on May 8th. She was 69 years old.

Eydie was a cherished wife, mother, grandmother, sister, aunt, and friend to all who knew her. For the past 43 years, she shared a beautiful life with her devoted husband, David. Together, they built a family filled with love, laughter, and countless cherished memories.

Born in Haiti and immigrating to America as a child, Eydie grew up in Randolph, MA before making her home in Franklin for over four decades. She was a graduate of Randolph High School and attended Northeastern University. Eydie dedicated her career to serving others and retired from Hormel Food Company in January of 2023 after stints at GTE and Digital Corporation.

In her free time, Eydie pursued her creative passions, finding joy in painting, DIY projects, scrapbooking, and journaling. She took great pride in entertaining family and friends, always the gracious hostess. Eydie's happiest moments were spent surrounded by her loved ones, especially her grandchildren, and embarking on camping adventures in the family RV with her husband David.

Eydie leaves behind a tremendous legacy of love, kindness, and service. She will be deeply missed by her husband, David; her children, Ian Coleman of Pawtucket, RI and Elisabeth Holloway of Long Beach, CA; her stepchildren, Christopher Holloway, and David Holloway, Jr.; her sister, Gisele (Morissett) Urban and her adoring grandchildren, Xavier and Nia, mom to Xavier and Nia, Yolanda Jennings, grandchildren, Shafique, Gianna, Christina, Chyanne, Courtnee and great-grandchild Jaxson and her niece, Nadiya Monestime. Though our hearts are heavy, we find comfort in the many blessings Eydie brought to our lives.

The family welcomes all to join in celebrating Eydie's life at the visitation and funeral service on Wednesday, May 22 at Crossway Church 282 Summer Street, Franklin, Massachusetts at 3:00 p.m.

Visitation will be Wednesday, May 22 from 1:00-3:00 p.m. in the Crossway Church.

Interment will be private at the Massachusetts National Cemetery, Bourne.

Arrangements are under the care of the Ginley Funeral Home of Franklin (www.ginleyfuneralhomes.com).

As Eydie was a breast cancer survivor, instead of flowers, the family kindly requested that donations be made to the Breast Cancer Society in Eydie's memory.
