Holly McDonald Rimes, 57, passed away on November 16th, 2022. She was born on January 4th, 1965, to Ernest Crawford McDonald and the late Carmen Thompson McDonald. She was the founder of Christmas in the Country and was a member of Kline Baptist Church. Holly was a loving wife and mother who never met a stranger and she always put others before herself. She spent her life helping disabled children, wounded warriors, and anybody with a broken wing. A friend once said she was a lot like Jesus, "Jesus was put here to give, and Holly lived a lot like that, her life was filled with giving for the sake of helping others."
To know her was to love her and she will be dearly missed.
2nd Corinthians 6 Remember this: Whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows generously will also reap generously. Each of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver
