Holly L. Kobee

Holly L. Kobee of Antwerp passed away on her 50th birthday, Monday, July 27, 2020 at Lutheran Hospital, Fort Wayne. 

Holly was always the bright light in the lives of her family and friends. From the time she was named Miss Paulding County in 1987 and Defiance College Homecoming Queen in 1994 to being a wife, mom, grammie, mimi, daughter, sister and best friend to everyone, Holly always shined brightly. Her contagious laugh made everyone feel special. She treasured time with her family, especially at Hilton Head Island. 

Holly taught and worked in administration in many area schools.

She will be sadly missed by her husband, John, whom she married March 24, 1990; children, Jodie (Brian) Kravec; John (Maria) Kobee, Beau (Rachal) Kobee; parents, George & Rebecca (Berenyi) Geyer and Skip & Kathy Calvin; siblings, Corey Geyer & Jennifer (Al) Manella and grandchildren, Hailey, Grace, Greta & Georgia.

Holly always had the biggest smile and most positive attitude in all she did! Although her time at NwOESC was brief, her love of education and passion for students shined bright! Many condolences to the family in the loss of this beautiful soul!

Mrs.Kobee, was always one of my favorite teachers at Hicksville. She was patient, kind and understand. My 10th grade year I needed a quiet space one on one to take my OGT so I got to sit in her office. Every morning I came to the front door at school just to give her a hug it always brightened my morning, especially when I was feeling down.
