June C. Holloway, age 86, a beloved member of the South Jackson Community, passed away at her residence and entered her heavenly home on Monday, February 12, 2024.

She was born on Monday, March 29, 1937, in Decatur County, TN to her loving parents, Benjamin Omer Turner (deceased ‘93) and Rhoda Ray Turner (deceased ‘99).

She graduated from JB Young High School in Bemis, Tn in 1955, and went on to receive her Nursing Degree from St Joesph’s School in Nursing in Memphis, TN in 1958.

June was a devoted wife to her husband James Earl Holloway for 66 years, until his death in Jan 2019. She was a loving and proud mother to her two sons, James Earl Holloway Jr, (Lesa, deceased, Feb ‘23) and Eddie Holloway, both of Jackson TN, along with two grandsons, Trey Holloway (Torrey) and Seth Holloway, Colorado Springs, CO. Her unconditional love and support were constants in their lives.

June’s life was filled with compassion and dedication to serving others. She spent decades working at Jackson Madison County General Hospital in their Surgery Department where her unwavering commitment touched the lives of countless patients and their families. By earning the respect, trust and confidence of the surgeons and administration, June was elevated to Clinical Coordinator where she led for many years. Her devotion and professionalism had a profound impact on all who worked with her.

Beyond her professional achievements, June will be remembered for her kind and gentle spirit. She exemplified the true meaning of empathy and selflessness in all aspects of her life. June’s warm smile and caring nature brought comfort to those around her during times of joy and sorrow alike.

June and her family have been members of Malesus Baptist Church for over 56 years. She faithfully taught Sunday School and served wherever needed. June was also an avid supporter of the Bemis Historical Society. She, along with her parents (who worked at the Mill) and her sisters, lived in Bemis during her childhood years. She loved to share stories during the Bemis Heritage Days.

Sandra (Holloway) Simpson, Denise Holloway (deceased ’15), Tammy (Holloway) Spell, and a sister-in-law, Bobbie Holloway as well as many great nieces and nephews.
