Obituary - Holly Lou Marboe

Holly Lou Marboe

Holly Lou Marboe died Thursday, May 26. She was 36. The following was provided by her family.

Holly was born on Feb. 20, 1986 in Jackson to Clay Marboe, of Jackson, and Cindy Marboe-Holle, of Dickinson, North Dakota. She graduated from Jackson Hole High School in 2004, and continued on to earn a bachelor’s degree at Dickinson State University, with focuses on languages and art. Holly was a very talented artist, and her skills in languages helped her in years to come.

However, Holly’s degree was not her calling. Starting in college she began going on mission trips far and wide. Starting in France, Mongolia, Taiwan and finally Vietnam, Holly lived her life in the greatest pursuit of all: to spread the word of Jesus throughout the world. She found a true passion for the Vietnamese people and resided there intermittently for close to 10 years. There she secretly taught the Gospel through English classes. By doing this she would have shared the Gospel with over 3,000 people during her time in Vietnam alone. However, in all her traveled places, including the United States, she brought many people to the word of God.

Holly loved Jesus. It was her sole passion in life to know and run hard after Him and to bring more and more people closer to Him. She ran a good race, but she is now more alive than any of us at home with her Savior.

Holly is preceded in death by her grandpa Leon Marboe. Holly is survived by her father, Clay Marboe, mother, Cindy Marboe-Holle, three sisters, Jenny Marboe, Emily Marboe and Mandy Irwin, grandparents, aunts and uncles, cousins and numerous friends who have been touched by Holly.

Funeral services will take place in North Dakota today. The family wants to extend a thank you to the EBC Church family (Holly’s home church), as well as all of Holly’s friends and family that were able to stop and visit or send a message of kind and encouraging words during this time.
