Holly Christine Wilburn, 42, of Knoxville, formerly of Greeneville, passed away Saturday unexpectedly at her home.

She was the daughter of Woodrow “Woody” and Wanda Wilburn of Greeneville.

She was a 1995 graduate of Greeneville High School and a 2000 graduate of the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, with degrees in Anthropology and Criminal Justice. She was an employee of Fisher Tire in Knoxville.

The pride and joy of Holly’s life was her daughter, Kendall Zoey Brooklyn Hastings. Being a mom was Holly’s greatest accomplishment. She leaves a huge legacy of love and laughter in Kendall.

Holly was a nature enthusiast and loved all things outdoors. She could often be found spending time with Kendall while hiking, kayaking, fishing, geocaching, looking for waterfalls and other nature-filled activities.

In addition to her parents and daughter, she is survived by her brother and his family: Tyler and Melanie Wilburn and their children, Alyssa, MacKenzie and Sam DeRocker; her sister and her family: Ashley and Daniel Foulks and their son, Dane. She is also survived by several loving aunts, uncles and cousins. Additionally, the family would like to recognize a special family friend, Taylor Hastings.

A graveside service will be Saturday at 2 p.m. in GreeneLawn Memory Gardens with the Rev. Dennis Shumate officiating

In lieu of flowers, the family requests that a donation be made to the Kendall Hastings Scholarship Fund at your local BB&T branch.

Doughty-Stevens Funeral Home is in charge of the arrangements.
