Holly Denise Bowden passed away on Saturday, February 1, 2020 at Baylor Hillcrest Hospital in Waco. Holly moved to Wortham with her daughter Jourdan in 1995 and remained in their home until her passing.

Holly was born May 12, 1973 in Corsicana, Texas to Michael and Beverly Brashear of Mildred, Tx.

Holly graduated Salutatorian in her class at Navarro College from the Occupational Therapy Assistant Program. Helping others was Holly’s calling and she took great pride in working with her kids with physical needs. Her ability to put the needs of others before her own was immeasurable.

Holly was a devoted mother and “Honey”. Her creativity and love for her grandchildren meant any time they spent together would be an adventure. Whether it was playing football or having a tea party, Holly would engulf herself wholly in playing with her grandkids. She would put her grandchildren before anything else and never shied away from basking them with gifts whenever possible. When asked she would simply say, “Grandbabies are the best”.

Holly will always be remembered for the love and affection she showed family, friends, and the children in her care. Her dedication to others’ well being was unmatched and will remain cherished memories to those close to her. Holly’s legacy will be carried on by her daughter, granddaughter and loved ones.

Holly is preceded in death by her grandparents Scott Lee Brashear and Marie Brashear and Dennis Bass and Ruth Bass and cousin, Shae Rogers.

Holly is survived by her parents; Mike and Beverly Brashear; her daughter, Jourdan Collins and husband Kyle Collins; and her granddaughter Cora Collins. She is also survived by her brother, Don Brashear and wife Kayna Brashear; her nephews; Kyle and Coy Brashear; great nephew, Channing Brashear and grandson Bryce Bowden.

Visitation with the family will be held from 5:00-7:00 PM on Thursday, February 6, 2020 at Corley Funeral Home. Funeral services are scheduled for Friday, February 7, 2020 at 11:00 AM at Corley Funeral Home Chapel with Bro. Justin Colquette officiating. Serving as pallbearers will be Chase Allen, Cameron Bowden, Kalob Bowden, Coy Brashear, and Kyle Brashear. Burial will follow at Wortham Cemetery.

An online guestbook is available at and selecting the Holly Denise Bowden obituary.

Holly was one of the first people I met when I moved to Wortham. I will never forget and always appreciate her welcoming smile and kindness towards me. I will miss her witty sense of humor, her genuine sweetness, her warm and comforting smile and running into her in town. Prayers and condolences to all who knew and loved her. Rest in Peace.
