Conrad Turner Holliday passed away on December 24, 2013 in Houston. Connie was born on July 12, 1930 in Richmond, Virginia. While attending Virginia Commonwealth University, she met the love of her life, Harper Holliday. They married in 1949, and, soon after, Hap enlisted in the United States Air Force. For the next two years, Connie traveled with him, and they both developed what would become a lifelong love of airplanes.
After the Korean War, Connie and Hap settled back into Richmond and the happy task of raising a family. Connie devoted herself to raising her two daughters and in her spare time, nurtured her love of reading and gardening. She was also a loyal friend and had a special fondness for animals. In their later years, Connie and Hap belonged to the Philadelphia Zoo.
In 1965, due to Hap's job, the family moved to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Connie lived there until 2008 when she and Hap moved to the Houston area to be near their daughter and her family. Sadly, Connie lost her beloved Hap in 2009, and she subsequently lived with her daughter in Clear Lake, Texas for two years. Most recently, she lived in Holly Hall Retirement Community, Houston.
Connie was preceded in death by her husband of sixty years, Hap Holliday. She is survived by her daughter Debbie McDowell and her husband Bill and their two children Billy and Virginia; her daughter Vikki Ouye and her husband Gene and their daughter Madeline; and a host of friends. A memorial service will take place at Holly Hall Retirement Community. In lieu of flowers, a donation can be made in her name to Holly Hall Retirement Community.
