Holly Suzanne Fadley

Jan. 29, 1951 - Jan. 4, 2014

WILKINSON — Holly Suzanne (Abney) Fadely, 62, Wilkinson, died unexpectedly Jan. 4, 2014, in Sebring, Fla.

She was born Jan. 29, 1951. She was a devoted wife, mother and grandmother and she loved spending time with her family and friends. She always had a smile and a kind word for everyone she met and making people laugh was one of her favorite things to do. She especially loved to make children smile. After she graduated from Smiles Unlimited Clown School, she volunteered to entertain nursing home residents while performing as “Giggles” the Clown.

She leaves behind to cherish her memory her husband of 44 years, Ross, whom she has known since the second grade; daughter, Renee Bronner of Pendleton; son, Bill Fadely of Wilkinson; granddaughters, Suzannah “Suz” Pursley (Michael) of Greenfield, and Mirabella “Rue” Bronner of Pendleton; sisters, Vici Schlabach (Terry) of Wilkinson and Shelley Calvert (Dan) of Fortville; brother, Mike Abney (Debbie) of Anderson; and sisters-in-law, Michelle Fadely of Frankton and Olga Fadely of Raymondville, Texas. She also leaves behind several nieces and nephews.

She was preceded in death by parents, George Abney and Joan (Heath) Abney.

Her family is asking that donations be made in her memory to the National Breast Cancer Research Center and Susan G. Komen in lieu of flowers.

Memorial services will be held at a later date. She will be dearly missed by everyone who knew her.

Arrangements entrusted to Stephenson-Nelson Funeral Home, Sebring, Fla.
