Obituary for Hattie Holmes
Hattie Holmes, 88, of Raleigh, passed away January 1, 2018.
Mrs. Holmes was always active in church by sharing her God-given talent of playing the piano and organ. She always received much joy and comfort through music. She was extremely talented in so many areas and enjoyed cooking, sewing, quilting, and knitting. She worked many years in assisting her husband in his State Farm office.
Mrs. Holmes was preceded in death by her husband, Preston R. Holmes, and her daughter, Debi Hobbs.
She is survived by daughters Linda Holmes Hensley (son-in-law Ken Hensley), Barbara Holmes, and son-in-law Kaydon Hobbs. She is also survived by three sisters Julia Price, Audrey Duncan, and Peggy Rhodes. She was preceded in death of siblings Louise Johnson, Douglas Webb, and John Henry Webb, and her parents.
Hattie and Ray dearly loved their six grandchildren: David Preston Hensley, Tina Hensley Izzo, Candy Burt Cremeans, Michael J. Hensley, Heather Hensley Oakes, and Lauren Hobbs La May. She was blessed that she was able to know her fourteen great-grandchildren, as well as the spouses of her grandchildren.
She has many nieces and nephews that she always cherished.
