Holley, Arleen

Arleen Holley, age 82, of Brunswick, passed away in the early hours of November 13th, 2022. She was born March 26th, 1940, in Cleveland, Ohio, where she was raised and subsequently met her husband and partner for life, Mark Holley.

As young newlyweds, she joined her husband in Germany for two years when he was drafted before returning to the states ahead of the birth of her first son. They lived life almost inseparably for 64 years, building a family together in Brunswick, seeing the world (including all 50 states!), and making countless memories along the way.

Arleen was a homemaker, world traveler, a Young and the Restless fanatic, and a phenomenal cook. She enjoyed arts, crafts, music, and loved to be amongst family and her dear friends.

Arleen was a wonderful mother who always took care of her children and grandchildren and did the best she could to teach and guide them. She was a strong, kind, inspiring, fun-loving human being with a contagious laugh and smile.

Arleen is survived by her loving husband, Mark Holley; her three children, Mark (Sharon) Holley II, Jeff (Sandi) Holley, and Kim (Scott) Holley; four grandchildren, Justin, Kyle, Kendall, and Mitchell; as well as numerous family members and friends who will forever love and miss her dearly.

A special thank you to the care team at Hospice of the Western Reserve in Medina, Ohio, for their incredible kindness, respect, and devotion to Arleen.
