Eunice “Louise” (Allen) Holliday was born on March 27, 1920 in Winnfield, Louisiana in a small house next door to their church. She was the second of 3 children born to Doshia and Vincent Allen. Her childhood took place during the great depression and the effects of that time. She had a loving and happy childhood with her mother and siblings. After graduating high school, she set out to complete nurse’s training at Shreveport Charity Hospital in Shreveport, Louisiana. She graduated as a Registered Nurse in 1943. A little over one year later she later accepted a commission in the U. S. Army. She served during World War II as a Second Lieutenant. After honorably serving, Louise later married Warren G. Holliday who precedes her in death and established a permanent residency in Houston, Texas. Over a year later they happily welcomed their only son, Ben, into the world. Louise spent her professional years as a register nurse serving her country in the U. S. Army and performed duties at the Veteran’s Administration Hospital in Houston, Texas for 21 years. She was an extremely devoted wife, mother, grandmother, great grandmother and great-great grandmother. She is survived by her son, Ben and his wife Diana, Priscilla, Matthew, Shelley, and Christopher (grandchildren), Amy, Jennifer, Sarah, Martin, Hallie, Peter, and Hannah (great grandchildren) , Mary and Elizabeth (great-great grandchildren). She is most remembered by her loved ones for her kindness and patience. Louise graced and enriched our lives with her loving nature and dedication to her family.

Grandma I want to tell you. You are one of the amazing women of your time. With your dedication to your country and your family. I wil always love and miss you. Many hardships stood in your way, but you preservered, where others would have just sat down and accepted life. Your work ethic is what was instilled in your child (my father) and your grandchildren. I am proud to call you my grandmother. The world lost an amazing women. However, Heaven was given a beatiful Angel. For all of the veterans that you cared for at the VA and your dedication to each one of them. You touched many lives. I am sure your welcome to Heaven has been a good one. Love Priscilla
