Eva S. Holcomb, 88

 

Eva S. Holcomb went peacefully into the arms of her Lord on Nov. 8, 2009, at The Orchard Nursing and Rehabilitation Centre.

 

Eva was born on Jan, 16, 1921, in East Poultney, Vt., the daughter of Lucius and Eva (Stoddard) Holcomb.

Eva touched the lives of many people over the years. Her kind, caring nature earned her the merits of being called Gramma Holcomb by most who knew her. Eva was a proud member of the Truthville Baptist Church.

Eva was predeceased by her husband, Charles LeRoy Holcomb, her brothers, Henry J, Lucius, George and Charles “Chick,” and sisters, Ann Mae Holcomb and Alice Brown.

Survivors are her son, James Holcomb, and his wife, Lorraine, and two daughters, Eva Bradley, and her husband, Joe, and Ethel Tifft and her husband, Leon, all of Granville. In addition, she is survived by two brothers, George Hurlburt and Dick Hurlburt and his wife, Becky, all of Granville; and two sisters, Betty Davis and June Davis, both of Whitehall. Eva was blessed with nine grandchildren, Dawn Bucknall, LeRoy Monroe Jr., Deborah Rozell, Lance Monroe, Paul Holcomb, Phillip Holcomb, Lee Tifft, Anne Hill and Heather Clark, as well as 19 great- grandchildren and five great-great-grandchildren.

A funeral service will be held on Thursday, Nov. 12, at 11 a.m. at the Truthville Baptist Church with  the Rev.Kevin Gebo officiating. Burial will follow in Bethany Cemetery in Truthville. Friends may call on Wednesday, Nov. 11, from 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. at the Robert M King Funeral Home, 23 Church St., Granville.

Memorial contributions may be made to the Truthville Christian Academy.
