Protection Press
March 11, 1915


Phoebe Ann Doran was born in New Brunswick, February 22, 1847.  She died at the home of her daughter, Mrs. Roy German, at Coldwater, March 4, 1915, at the advanced age of 68 years and 10 days.

She moved with her parents to Illinois in 1849.  There she was married to J.M. Holler on February 2, 1868.  Seven children were born to this union, six are left with their father to mourn the loss of a loving wife and mother.

In 1912 they moved to Protection where they have since made their home.  Mrs. Holler joined the Methodist church in 1880, and remained a true and faithful worker for Christ.  She was a devoted wife, a loving mother, and a good community worker.  The funeral was held Saturday at two o’clock from the Methodist church, Rev. Shields officiating.  Interment was in the Protection cemetery.

She leaves a host of friends to mourn the loss of a good woman, one who could always be looked to as an example of a true Christian.  She was a lover of young folds, and many of her spare moments were used in comforting them.  May she rest in peace.

Mr. Holler was scrupulous in his business dealings and as a neighbor and personal friend highly regarded and esteemed.

In his more active years, he was prominent in the affairs of his community and always had a kindly word and enjoyed the society of the younger folks of his immediate family and neighborhood.

He had been a member of the Odd-fellows at Buffalo, Oklahoma since 1909 and until later years and age had prevented, always took an active interest in the affairs of the order.

Since his early manhood he had been a consistent Christian, affiliating with the Methodist Episcopal Church.
