Margaret M. Holloway

Margaret Holloway-The time has come to say good bye to the last of six Borstnar sisters, the last of six magnificent lives. Lives that filled ours with a rich history, a world of exploration, a world of discovery, a world of mystery, and a world of answers. These lives filled ours with laughter, singing, dancing, and music. These lives filled ours with love. Margaret Mary passed away on November 6, 2014 in Kemmerer, WY at the age of 93. She was born on December 25, 1920 in Trommald, Minnesota the daughter of Anton and Frances (Perusek) Borstnar; the baby sister of Rose Mormino, Alice Sadler, Frances Gordes, Steffie Casanova, and Julie Kantor. The Borstnar family moved from Minnesota to Sublet in 1922. Margaret was raised in the area and was a graduate of Kemmerer HS class of 1938. After graduation, she attended college in Weiser, ID and then in Pocatello, ID. While she was still a young lady, Margaret moved to SLC, UT to work. It was on her lunch break that she saw a posting for government jobs. She interviewed, got the job, and went back to the office and quit. She was employed with the Pentagon for 12 years and upon the end of WWII, she was one of the first female American civilians to enter Japan. She was proud of the year that she spent there. When she returned to the states and Washington DC, she met and married Jack Holloway. Her wedding photographer was none other than Cecil Stoughton. Jack and Margaret left DC and moved to California, Chicago, Atlanta, and Memphis. It was in Memphis that they managed hotels with upscale dining and catering. They were divorced after 14 years and Margaret went to work for the IRS where she retired. After retirement, she returned home to be with her sisters. Margaret loved to travel and she saw much of the world. She had an eye for the exquisite and unique. There aren’t enough words to describe the life she lived, the love she gave, or the smiles she shared. She was preceded in death by all of her immediate family and many friends. She is survived by her nieces Geraldine Clarke of Kemmerer and Elaine Celli of Clearfield, UT, a growing extended family, and friends. Graveside services will be held at the Kemmerer city cemetery on November 22, 2014 at 11am with Father David from St. Patrick’s Catholic Church officiating. In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to St Patrick’s Catholic Church, Paws and Claws Animal Shelter, Kemmerer Senior Citizen Center, or any charity of your choice. Cremation has taken place under the direction of Ball Family Chapel of Kemmerer.
