At an early age, Holley attended Fairview Public School, Woodward Public School and, when her family moved to Cherokee in 1969, after her parents purchased the Cherokee Messenger and Republican, she attended and graduated from Cherokee Public School While attending school at Cherokee, Holley also attended Hissom Memorial Center, a school for individuals with developmental disabilities, in Sand Springs. She was a teacher for the Cherokee First United Methodist Church Kids Club where she also served as a Sunday school teacher.

Although a privilege, Holley thought it was her constitutional right to drive a car. One car she was very proud of was her red Monte Carlo that she drove to work at Coles Flowers in Cherokee and made weekly deposit trips to Alva for Hammer-Williams Company. On one particular day, her dad, Larry, told her to not take the deposits because of the bad weather conditions. In true Holley fashion, she was going to prove him wrong, but gave herself away by bringing him his dry cleaning.
