Holly was born December 27, 1978 in Norman, Oklahoma, to Jim and Karen Hill. She became a redeemed Child of God with her baptism at six months of age. Later, she publicly confirmed her faith through confirmation at First Presbyterian Church. Holly spent several summers attending Kanakuk Kamps where she continued her spiritual growth. She excelled in her academic achievements at Norman Public Schools, graduating with honors in 1997 from Norman High School. She was named a National Merit Commended Scholar in recognition of her outstanding academic promise. Holly attended the University of Oklahoma, honored to be selected for the 1997 President’s Leadership Class. She studied Human Relations, and was a member of the Alpha Chi Omega sorority. Following her dad’s passion, Holly enjoyed caring for animals, working as a vet assistant during her time at the University.

Holly was married to Darren Morse on April 24th, 2010 at McFarlin Memorial United Methodist Church. She loved being Darren’s wife, taking pride in the home they established together in Roanoke, Texas. Holly was a trusted and valued friend to many. Photos filled every space and every place in her home, recalling special memories with dear friends. She found great satisfaction in being a confidant, an engaged listener, and the provider of many laughs. Holly loved to travel. From New York to Paris, from Disney World to the White House, Holly enjoyed traveling with family and friends.

Holly was welcomed into the Kingdom of her Heavenly Father, where she is reunited with her earthly father, Jim Hill. Holly is survived by her husband of six years, Darren, of Roanoke, Texas.
