Obituary of Holly (Prieur) Hackborn
Holly Ann Hackborn, 65, of Essexville, our loving, generous, sparkling, and amazing wife, mother, sister, aunt, and loyal friend was born into eternal life on the afternoon of Thursday, August 3, 2017 at her home, after a courageous battle with cancer. Holly was born in Bay City on December 2, 1951, the daughter of the late Leon and Joyce (Wendt) Prieur. She was a graduate of Garber High School and Bayshire Beauty Academy. Holly was a dedicated hair stylist for 47 years, creating numerous connections and friendships through her service to others. Through mutual connections, she was introduced to Rob Hackborn. They dated, fell in love, and were united in marriage on June 17, 2011. Holly enjoyed shopping, garage sales, watching the sun rise, cooking, golf, hosting backyard BBQs for family and friends, and lightening the lives of others with her joyful spirit. She left a lasting impact on all those who knew her and will be deeply missed, but lovingly remembered for years to come. She leaves behind to cherish her memory, her husband Rob, and her son, Jeff VanOchten (girlfriend, Desiree). She was the beloved sister of Pam Burgeson, Richard (Sandy) Prieur, Penny (Roger) Zacharko, Jeffrey Prieur, and Terrie (Ted) Freilach. Holly had a tremendous love for her nine nieces and nephews, and treated their children as her own grandchildren, showering them with love and gifts at every opportunity.
