CELEBRATION OF LIFE
Nancy Holmes daughter of the late Willie and Lottie Holmes, born November 22,
1926, in Whitehall, South Carolina. She was called to her heavenly home on
December 11, 2020. Nancy was educated in the public schools of Colleton
County. She moved to Jersey City, NJ in her early years. She became a Foster
parent with the New Jersey Foster Parent Association. She fostered more that 10
children and eventually adopted of 5 children. She attended St John Baptist
Church along with her children. After many years she relocated to Charleston, SC,
and became a member of Ebenezer AME Church, becoming a member of many
boards. She missed her home in Colleton county so she moved to Walterboro, SC
transferred her membership to Holy Temple Church on Jefferies Street. Aunt
Nancy, Miss Holmes, Nan as she was often called was a very caring and giving
woman; you would find her feeding and giving at almost any time of the day, this
was truly her ministry. As her health declined, she could no longer do the things
that gave her pleasure, so it became necessary for her to enjoy life in other ways
and to be taken care of by her daughter Janette and other family members.
Nancy was preceded in death by her two sons Arthur Holmes and Harold Holmes.
Nancy leaves to cherish fond memories her children: Janette Holmes, Mitchell
Holmes, Nakimba Holmes, and James Holmes, three siblings: two sisters; Mary Holmes and Janie Mae Brown, her
brother Harold Warren, and a host of grandchildren, great grand, nieces,
nephews, cousins and other loving relatives and friends.
