Betty Lou Holstein, age 87 of Nixa, went to her heavenly home on Friday, June 12, 2020. She was born April 25, 1933 in Highlandville, the daughter of Jacob and Ola (Wolf) Davis. Betty was a lifelong resident of Christian County.
Betty was a proud and faithful member of Finley River Cowboy Church. She enjoyed going out to breakfast on Tuesdays with the rowdy NLA group, lunch with church friends and family at Double E Cafe, and Friday night dinners at Gateway cafe. She loved spending time outdoors with friends and family, and walking around visiting her neighbors - preferably barefoot. Anyone who knows her, knows that she was full of spunk and had lots of fun everywhere she went. She loved her family with all her heart, and gave until she had nothing left to give. She left a note that said, "My prayers, my love, my blessings are with you all. I love you all forever, till we meet again".
Survivors include: son in law, Steve Russell; daughter in law, Sherry Holstein; grandchildren, Shannon Kleier and her husband David, with their children, Dillon and Lori; Brandon Stewart and his wife Rachel, with their children, Cody and Hayden; Chad Stewart and his wife Sarah, with their children Jax and Ava; Jennie Holstein; Holden Holstein; a step-grandson Chris Russell, with his children Kennadi and Maci; a step-granddaughter Kari Russell and her partner James Meador, with their children Sydney and Liam; a stepdaughter Sandra Looney, with her children, Robin Lemaster, Scott Witt, Allen Witt, Lori Steele and Marty Witt; and many nieces and nephews and close friends and family.
Betty was preceded in death by her parents, Jake and Ola Davis; her husband, Holland Holstein; her son, Bill Holstein; her daughter Kaye Russell: her brother, Sam Davis; her sister, Jo Jones; and her brother, Frank Davis.
A graveside service will be held at 11:00 A.M., Tuesday, June 16, 2020 at Highlandville Cemetery, under direction of Adams Funeral Home, Nixa, with Pastor Terry Kleier officiating, with music by The Baker Family.
