Marlene Kay Holloway, age 68, of Westland, Michigan passed away on Friday, December 25, 2020. She was born in Detroit, Michigan on January 12, 1952 to the late Ernest and Irma Frame. Marlene is preceded in death by her husband James Holloway. Marlene is survived by her five children; Kenneth Frame, Tiwonna Daniels, Tamika Daniels-Triplett, Donnie McBride Jr. and Erica McBride; Grand children; Jaylen, Roderick, Kenneth, Perrionna, Trishonna, Bruce Jr., Elijah, Anasia, Mariah and Trezure; sisters Darlene Funderburke and Pamela Frame; along with many loving nieces and nephews.

Marlene retired in 2015 after working for many years on the skip hoist at Ford Motor Company. She enjoyed time with her family and grandchildren.

Marlene was outgoing, generous and knew how to make you laugh. She enjoyed time with her family and grandchildren, and always wanted to be giving with her time and gifts even when she didn’t have much.

Back in the day, Marlene was quite crafty. When she wasn’t working or raising her children, she would be found decking out fancy teddy “bear chairs” with lace and different colors. Christmas was by far her favorite holiday, so she always decked out her home and yard with over the top festive decor.

In her last few years, Marlene faced a number of health concerns, but she was a tough one. She wanted to stay as independent as possible, and would always say “I do what I have to do” despite what pain or problems she was dealing with. Her tenacious spirit and caring heart will be missed greatly.

A visitation for Marlene will be held Saturday, January 9, 2021 from 11:00 AM to 1:00 PM. A funeral service will occur Saturday, January 9, 2021 at 1:00 PM at Harry J Will Funeral Home, 34567 Michigan Ave, Wayne, Michigan 48184. A burial will occur at Cadillac Memorial Garden West.

Hey Sis T. Im praying for you my lil bit, Perry and your family and children. Your mother was a great person she loves you so much I remember seeing her at your house that day going crazy through your clothes telling us how she didn't drink but she was willing to take some hot damn cherries 😂 she told us about her times at the casino with Jimmy and more. she told us how she wanted to take you on Vegas trips. I know you're going to miss your mother but just know that God has her. at least you do have a piece of her in the truck she gave u n my baby. And every time you ride in it think about her because she loves you and I will never forget our fun we had for those few hours. I'm sorry you lost your mom and I'm here for you Sis.

To my sister Tawana and my brother Ken first and foremost my condolences to you and your family and your children. Your mother was a great woman and a beautiful person very outspoken and she didn't hold her tongue for anyone. I've known you guys for close to 30 years so my heart hurts for you, I remember when your mother was at Ken's house and made Tawana take her shoes off and give them to her and your mom gave her shoes to you. She was so happy that day. I love you guys and my thoughts and prayers are with you all.

My mother was one beautiful piece of work and I love every moment we had together I'm going to miss talking to her late at night when she supposed to be in bed and we chat until 4 and 5 in the morning she always tried to please others and make others happy even though it would have been a struggle on her she still would give her last to make sure that someone else was happy she was very outgoing very outspoken yet very loving very happy and very funny and I am proud to call her my mother as much as it hurts to type this I must say mommy you will be truly missed thank you for giving me life because Without You sacrificing yours through my birth I wouldn't be here to give life to my beautiful children and I thank you for that thank you for loving me in your own special way I understand yet I can't let you go this is a very hard pill to swallow everything I've been through in my life everything I still wouldn't turn back the hands of time because this is God's plan and I'm here and you're with him and I know you're watching over us I'm so sorry for all the pain you've been through for all the sicknesses you have suffered I wish I could take it away just to have you back I'm willing to take it all but I guess I'm too late I am going to miss you so much I am going through it so bad I'm hoping that this is just a dream every time I wake up reality hits that it's for real and I know and I have to face thought I would never see my mom again and it's so hard on my heart I don't know if I'm coming or going but through the strength of God I promise you to love and cherish my children hold my head up and walk by faith and never by sight I promise to be that strong daughter that you've always known me to be and I would never change to please anyone I will continue to be your baby girl that you've always known me to be I'm going to miss you so much and I love you so much and now I see what people mean there is no pain worse than losing your mother and I feel that 😔imy mommy 😢
