Mary Florence Hollabaugh, 65, of Russellville, went to her heavenly home, Saturday, December 8, 2018, surrounded by her loving family. She was born April 27, 1953 in Russellville to Thomas Agnew Cousar, Jr. and JoAnn Vincent Cousar.  She is preceded in death by her parents; first husband, James Michael Waggoner; daughter, Amanda Hollabaugh; two grandsons, Evan Bryan Waggoner, James Michael Waggoner.

Mary’s passion was serving the Lord.  She was very active with her church, Fellowship Bible Church. 

To many, she was known as “Miss Mary”, for decades of loving and teaching children in Sunday School.

Mary was known through serving the community at Taylor’s Nursery.  Her knowledge of the nursery was well known and appreciated; however, her love to serve and visit with the customers was what made her so special.

There will be a celebration of Mary’s life, 4pm, Wednesday, December 12, 2018 at Fellowship Bible Church, with Pastor Jeff Walchshauser  and Pastor Bob Manry officiating.   Cremation arrangements are under the direction of Russellville Family Funeral .

The family would love for Mary’s friends to share their memories and thoughts.  You may share these at www.russellvillefamilyfuneral.com guestbook page or our facebook page.

Memorials may be made to Fellowship Bible Church for missionaries Amos & Meredith Anderson in Albania.

Dear Family,
I send my sincere condolences for your loss. There are comforting promises in the Bible that the time is coming when all those in the memorial tombs will hear [Jesus] voice and come out. (John 5:28,29) Our Loving Heavenly Father, Jehovah God has also promised that he will wipe out every tear from their eyes and death will be no more (Revelation 21:4) May it comfort you and strengthen you to reflect on Gods promises to bring back to life your dear loved one to a beautified earth where she can be reunited with her family, and never have to get sick and die, ever again. (Psalm 37:11,29; Isaiah 33:24)

I first came to know Mary as my daughters Sunday school teacher & later served with her in the childrens ministry. Watching her with those little ones was so precious. She loved them & they so loved her. Such a sweet, sweet lady. I know she will be so very missed.

Mary was the first friend I made when I moved to Russellville over 37 years ago. She was one of the kindest people I have ever known. Her love for the Lord and her precious prayers are what come to mind when I think of Mary. Her reward was well deserved.
