Betty Faye Hollandsworth

March 18, 1948 ~ January 3, 2022 (age 73)


Betty Faye Hollandsworth, 73, passed away Monday, January 3, 2022  at Woodbury Health and Rehab.  A native of Cannon Co., she was the daughter of the late William Vernon “Bunt” Cooper and Carrie Bell Morris Cooper.

She is survived by her children, Missy Taylor Banks, Brenda Taylor, Jennifer (Ethan) Nickens, Jessica (Kelly) Curtis and Michael (Samanthia) Hollandsworth; grandchildren, Craig Banks, Chesney (Blake) Downing, Zachary Taylor, Ada and Audrey Curtis; great grandchildren, Sawyer Downing and Alice Banks; siblings, Wallace (Estelle) Cooper, Joy Dell Crocker, Joe Cooper, Ray (Tena) Cooper, Ann Gaither (Steve) and Margie Gilley.

In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband, Phillip Hollandsworth; grandson, Dalton Nickens and siblings, Bob Cooper, Susie Moulder, Marvin Cooper and Brenda Cooper.

A member of the Auburn Baptist church, she was a retired seamstress.  She enjoyed gardening, reading, and listening to music but most of all her children and grandchildren, as they affectionally called her “Nanny Goat”, were her true joy in life.

In her final years, Ms. Hollandsworth was lovingly cared for at Woodbury Health and Rehab.  She loved all of her caregivers, especially Lisa Nichols whom she considered her “fifth daughter”.
