Montgomery, AL - Eva Sue Holladay left this world for a far better one on January 30, 2014. She had, by the meaningful measures, a wonderful life. Born in Savannah Ga. on 12/23/1920, she was the youngest of four children and the only girl. In 1939 she married Paul Holladay. She was a wonderful wife and mother to three sons. For many years she sold Tupperware. After Paul's death in 1977 she worked as a manager for Children's Medical Services for the State of Florida. Sue was a devoted Christian, a lifelong Baptist and charter member of Parkview Baptist Church. She was very involved in the Woman's Missionary Union. She taught Sunday School for decades and was a deacon. She was a "pillar of the church." Sue lived a life worthy of celebration and emulation. She was "a good and faithful servant."

Sue was preceded in death by her loving husband Paul and son William (Bill) Holladay. She is survived by sons Cecil A.(Doc) Holladay (Linda) of Montgomery, AL., J. Tracy Holladay (Debbie) of Louisville, KY, grandchildren David (Lori), Joy (Michael)Loomis, Andrew, Matthew (Kylie), Luke, Paul (Sarah) & Anna and seven great-grandchildren: Jessica, Leah, Christopher, Hannah, Brett, Sadie & Parker. She will also be greatly missed by her former daughter-in-law Judy Ritesma (Bernie).
