In 1958, she was united in holy matrimony to the late Homer Holmes. To this union four children were born. She was a devoted wife, a very loving mother, and a dear friend to all.
She leaves behind to cherish and celebrate her memories two daughters: Lynda Holmes and Alice Holmes of Phenix City, Alabama; three sons: Clarence Holmes and Daniel Holmes of Phenix City, Alabama, and Frank Holmes of Hurtsboro, Alabama; two stepdaughters: Christine Warren of Thomasville, Georgia and Lella M. Parson of Columbus, Georgia; a stepson, James E. Holmes of Columbus, Georgia; and a loving and devoted brother, Willie B. (Gussie) Harris of Safety Harbor, Florida. She leaves behind five beautiful grandchildren: Demarius Holmes of Phenix City, Alabama; Dee’Jannell Holmes of Montgomery, Alabama; Der’eon Marshall, Dallas and Dyamond McNeil of Phenix City; and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends.
