|February 7, 1949 - March 5, 2016
After a courageous battle with cancer, Patty Sue Cason Holland, of Bella
Vista, Ark. passed away on March 5, 2016, with her husband by her side.
She was born on February 7, 1949, to Wylma May Cason and Carl D.
Cason. Patty grew up in Tulsa, Oklahoma, graduating from Rogers High
School in 1967 where she met Mike, the love of her life. They married soon
after graduation and had two children, Shelli and Jeff. Patty was very
involved in the lives of her young family as a homeroom mother, Bluebird
leader and soccer coach.
As her children grew older, Patty went to work outside the home eventually
settling at State Farm Insurance where she had a successful career in medical
claims and then entered the company’s agency program. In 1998, she and
Mike left Tulsa to begin a new chapter in their lives in Marietta, Oklahoma,
where together they built a successful State Farm Insurance agency,
developing many friendships in the Marietta and Falconhead communities.
A lifelong creator, Patty was known by her family, friends and co-workers
for her sewing, cooking, cross-stitch and crafting skills. Those close to her
were the lucky recipients of gifts she generously made from the heart. She
worked alongside Mike as they tackled endless home improvement projects
including gardens, decks, refurbishing a cabin at Lake Tenkiller, and
completely remodeling their business office in Marietta and home in
Falconhead. Patty retired from State Farm Insurance in 2014 before moving
with Mike to Bella Vista, Arkansas, in August of 2015.
Friends and loved ones will remember Patty’s beautiful smile, dry sense of
humor and giving spirit. She was a dedicated mother, always there to
dispense sage advice or lend a hand whenever it was needed. Her devotion
to Mike as a wife and friend was the definition of true love and marriage.
Patty was preceded in death by her mother, Wylma Cason, and father, Carl
D. Cason. She is survived by her husband Mike Holland of Bella Vista,
Arkansas; daughter, Shelli Holland-Handy and son-in-law, Bill Handy of
Tulsa, Oklahoma; son, Jeff Holland of Vian, Oklahoma; brother, Gene
Cason of Pawnee, Oklahoma; and granddaughter, Emily Handy of
