She was preceded in death by her husband, J. Frank Holcomb. They were married 52 years until his death in 1989. She was a very loving and devoted mother, grandmother, and great grandmother. She leaves behind a heritage that taught all of her family the importance of faith in Jesus Christ. Her life reflected that deep faith all the days of her long life.

Werner (John) of Athens; granddaughter, Heather Werner of Athens; grandsons, Lin (Adrienne) Holcomb of Atlanta, and Johnny (Michelle) Werner of Ringgold, GA; two great-grandchildren, Colby and Lydia Werner of Ringgold, GA.
