One of Mamie’s favorite bible verses was Proverbs 15:13 “A merry heart maketh a cheerful countenance” and she lived with a merry heart. She was a loving and devoted wife, business partner, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, aunt, cousin and friend. She loved freely and was loved in return. She enjoyed giving to others and was always putting others’ needs before her own.
Her family expresses their sincere gratitude to the health care professionals who so willingly provided care and comfort for her; Dr. Evan Johnson, Kathy Vaughn, Dale Johnson, and the staffs of Serenity Place, Wills Creek Village, Amedysis Home Health, Marshall Medical South and DeKalb Regional.
In lieu of flowers, Mrs. Holcomb’s wishes were to have donations given to the Mt. Zion youth group.
