Lois L. Hollingsworth

July 28, 1944 - February 16, 2019

Lois L. Hollingsworth Lois Hollingsworth, a lifetime resident of Terre Haute, passed in peace Saturday the 16th of February, 2019, at Hospice of the Wabash Valley. She was born in Clinton, to Ben and Esther Wallace Hollingsworth, on July 28, 1944.
She was preceded in death by her parents; two sisters, Jean Fellows and Ida Jenkins; and two brothers-in-law, Kenny Turchi and Eddie Bennett. She is survived by Amy Hollingsworth; two brothers, Jim Hollingsworth (Leotta) of Washington and Bennie (Georgetta) of Clinton; and three sisters, Bonnie Turchi and Helen Bennett of Universal, and Linda (Max) Anderson of Spencer. Also surviving are Mary Jo Powell, Sierra Eaton, Devante McCoy, Deverra McCoy and Devante McCoy Jr.; numerous nieces and nephews; her beloved dog, Molly; her cat, Di Di; and many, many special friends.
Lois was a pioneer in women's fastpitch softball and played center field for the Burger Chefettes. Because of her outstanding skills, she was inducted into the Indiana Softball Hall of Fame. She was also a true athlete in many sports, including bowling and golf.
Throughout her life, Lois loved people and animals. She loved to help her friends and was an accomplished carpenter, painter and all-around handy woman. She loved to socialize and enjoyed going to ball games and playing cards. Her wonderful smile and gentle touch could brighten the lives of everybody - whether two-legged or four-legged.
Lois believed, "No matter what happens in life, be good to people. Being good to people is a wonderful legacy to leave behind." She absolutely fulfilled that legacy. Indeed, during her lifetime she touched so many lives in so many ways that she will be remembered by everyone who knew her with love and admiration.
She will be deeply missed.
Donations may be made to the Central Christian Church.
Celebration of life will be held at Central Christian Church, 4950 Wabash Ave., on March 16th at 10 a.m.

I feel like I've known Lois for most of my life. She was a friend to my mom from bowling and I ended up bowling with her for many years. She would always stop by at my shop visit and helping her on home projects.. She will be missed so much. Rip my friend...

I just loved Lois. She always had a smile and we would chat every time she brought her sweet Sassy and now Molly. I will certainly miss her, and just can't believe she's gone. She never complained and I know there were many times she didn't feel well. Love you Lois,,,,
