Jacqueline Gwendolyn Harris Holman, affectionally known to family and friends as “Jackie” and “Tooty Fruity” transitioned from her earthly home to accept her heavenly wings in her eternal home on Saturday, August 13, 2022 at 10:22 pm at Memorial Regional Hospital.
Jackie was born July 14, 1952 in Caroline County to the Late Bennie Harris Jr. and the Late Marguerite Chandler Harris. Jackie was preceded in death by her parents Bennie Jr, Marguerite Hall, and stepfather Arthur “Cle” Hall.
Jackie accepted Christ in her life at an early age and joined the Second Mt. Zion Baptist Church under the leadership of the Late Reverend Doctor D.J. Ragland, where she served faithfully.
Jackie graduated from Union High School in 1970. She retired from Tyson Food with 30 years of faithful service.
Jackie enjoyed life to the fullest. Her passion was her family whom she loved dearly. She enjoyed doing crossword puzzles, reading, watching her day time soaps and putting a stop to Makayla stealing her jewelry. She enjoyed taking family vacations. She was a faithful sister, grandmother, aunt and neighbor. It is said that it takes only a moment to get to know someone and a life time to love that special someone.
Jackie was not a driver. Brenda remembered the time when Cle was attempting to teach her to drive. Cle made her mad and she quit cold turkey vowing that she had enough.
That did not matter to her because she always had family to chauffeur her around.
She was a gracious and wonderful grandmother and baby sitter. She was known as Mama to the Shawn and Shavon Rollins, who were her community children. Raj, Supervisor of GPS Taxi Service, who transported her to and from her doctor’s appointments, gave her the nickname “Big Mama”
Whenever the songs “God Did It”, “Your Grace and Mercy” and “Amazing Grace” (her favorites) are being sung will always be a reminder of her to the family.
Darlene, Lisa, Cynthia and Delores, no more daily phone calls until we meet again.
She leaves to cherish her memories to her children, daughters, Maria “Net” Holman, Nikki Holman and son, Marcus “Mark” Holman. One devoted sister, Brenda (Lawrence) Smithers. Eight grandchildren, Ashley, Alantra, Makayla, Marcus Holman,Jr., Sade Holmes, Dustin Hess, Makyiah Spurlock and DeSean Rollins. Four great-grand children, Kamden Pitts, Jaquande Holman, Mia Hampton and Mark Hampton III. Four uncles, Andrew Chandler, James (Earline) Chandler, Walter (Geraldine) Chandler and Deacon Curtis Harris, Sr. Three devoted nephews, Rodney (Nakissa), Lawrence (Sabrina) and Kevin (Gertie) Smithers. One devoted niece, Sharnell (Jack) Sutton. Two great nieces, Aisha Smithers and Janelle Sutton. Seven great-nephews, Cory, De’Andre, Jamall, Markel, Jaden, Kevin Jr., and Jacquan.
