On October 16, 2013, Mary Madge McComb Holloway went to be with her Lord and Savior.

Known to many as “Mom Mary,” she was born February 1, 1924, at Warwick and was one of 11 children.

Mary lived in Huntersville; San Diego, California; Las Vegas, Nevada; and Tucson, Arizona; and El Paso and Fort Worth, Texas.

As an Air Force widow, Mary met many people from all her travels and added to her extended family.

As the matriarch of her family, she maintained a close replationship with several nieces and other family members.

She loved her home and viewed her greatest accomplishment as being a mother and homemaker. She invited people to partake in her homecooked meals, and she always had an open table.

Mary loved studying the Bible and all her church activities. She never hesitated to share her love of Jesus and encourage those around her to know “the feeling.”

She was a voracious reader. Her most prized possessions were her books.

She is survived by two daughters, Kay Wright and Jeani Anderson, both of Fort Worth, Texas; a grandson, Ken Wright, and wife, Debbie, of Atlanta, Georgia; her “baby” sister, Myrle Gibson, of Covington, Virginia; and several nieces, nephews and other family members.

Memorial service is Saturday, November 16, 1 p.m. at Christ Church, 5301 Altamesa Blvd., Fort Worth, Texas.

As anyone who had the pleasure of knowing Mary knew, she had a heart for the world.

Memorials may be made to Heart for the World, 2118 Grant Avenue, El Paso, TX 79930.

Words of thanks cannot begin to convey our heartfelt appreciation and love for the faithful and prayerful support from Elizabeth Robles Ministry and all the Prayer Warriors. Additionally, we extend an appreciative thank you to all her caregivers from Trail Lake Nursing and Rehab. Your kind, loving care made her last days better.

She will be missed by many.
