Mrs. Holmes was very pa­tri­otic and a won­der­ful friend and prayer war­rior for so many. She was very artis­tic and enor­mously giv­ing with send­ing cards, presents and cro­cheted crosses.

Baylis, Vorhees, NJ, and their fam­i­lies who were very spe­cial to her. She often re­ferred to her cousin, Car­roll Amoroso, as her lit­tle brother. She is also sur­vived by many nieces, neph­ews, won­der­ful cousins from South Carolina, North Carolina, New Jer­sey, Penn­syl­va­nia, Delaware and Mary­land, as well as many dear friends, in­clud­ing her friend of 51 years, Bar­bara Ma­theny, Flagstaff, AZ, her daily prayer and talk­ing buddy, An­n­Marie Gawyrch, Elk­ton, MD, her care­giver, Phyl­lis Scar­berry, and her two lit­tle furry friends, Joey and Mandie.
