Dr. Minal Delwadia Hollowell, 43, of Brentwood, Tennessee, passed away on April 20, 2021, after a long and well-fought battle against cancer.

Minal was born in 1977 to Naran “Chiman” and Kusum Delwadia in Rajkot, Gujarat, India. After graduating from the Shades Valley Resource Learning Center in 1995, she went on to complete Medical School and first year medical residency at the University of Alabama at Birmingham. She then completed her residency in Anesthesiology at the University of Virginia, where she was selected to serve as Chief Medical Resident.

After graduation, she began a 13-year career as an Anesthesiologist at Anesthesia Medical Group in Nashville, Tennessee.

In 1995, she met Matt Jared Hollowell, and they wed in 2003. They were blessed with 2 children, Lillian Manjari Hollowell and Jasmine Chandani Hollowell.

Aside from work, Minal enjoyed attending family gatherings, spending time with close friends, reading, and traveling the world. She has always been a dancer at heart, and she leaves behind a strong legacy of compassion, creativity, and caring.

Minal is survived by her husband, Matt; her 2 children Lillian and Jasmine Hollowell; her parents Naran “Chiman” and Kusum Delwadia; brother Chirag (Jessica) Delwadia; and many other family and friends.

Minal loved and was well-loved by family and friends, and her strength, passion, empathy, and wisdom will be missed by all who have had the benefit of knowing her. The Hollowells held a private gathering in Brentwood, Tennessee to honor her memory. A public Celebration of Life will be held at a later date.
