Marilyn Kay Holloman

Marilyn Kay Holloman, 65, of Evansville and formerly of Vincennes, passed away at 2:28 p.m. on Sunday, June 9, 2019 at Deaconess Hospital in Evansville.

She was born on Sept. 20, 1953, in Vincennes to Ransom and Ruth (Cochran) Holloman who both preceded her in death. Marilyn was a 1971 graduate of Lincoln High School and graduated from Vincennes University a few years later.

She is survived by her sister, Carolyn WarmSun and her husband, Larry Cooke, of Oakland, California. Despite the years of difference in their ages, and the fact that they lived far from each other for most of Marilyn’s life, the sisters shared a unique and close bond of love and compassion. Marilyn is also survived by her aunt, Roberta Cochran and cousins Kathy McKee, Debbie Mosier, and Mike Cochran and their families of Washington; and her cousin, Brenda Mischler and her family of Newburgh.

Marilyn’s ashes will be taken to California to be scattered in the ocean she loved so much.  Goodwin Funeral Home is honored to serve Marilyn’s family.
