Born on Rocky Flat Road in Ashe County, she came to Pennsylvania at the blossoming age of 22. At that time she met the man of her dreams at the Sunset Park in Jennersville, Pa. From that day on, Ann and J.C. Holman, Sr., who was born in Ashe County, remained lovingly inseparable.
She enjoyed her family and friends and was deeply loved by all. Ann loved to attend church services at the Kennett Square Missionary Baptist Church. Ann will be remembered most for being Mother to all that blessed her life.
Ann was preceded in death by her husband, J.C., of 58 years, in 2002. They were married on Nov. 4, 1944 in Elkton, Md. She was also preceded in death by her son, J.C. Holman, Jr., in 2003, as well as her seven brothers and one infant sister. Ann is survived by her two daughters, Carolyn Edwards of Avondale, Pa., and Teresa Johnson and husband, John, of Kennett Square, Pa.; one son, Norman Osborne and wife, Ruby, of Kennett Square, Pa.; two sisters, Gladys Shelton of Creston, and Eldene Mitchell of Johnson City, Tenn.. Ann found no greater joy then spending time with her children, nine grandchildren and 13 great grandchildren.
