Mamie Ruth Thomas Holcomb

Fort Payne

Mamie Ruth Thomas Holcomb, 87, of Fort Payne, formerly from Sand Mountain, joined her loved ones in heaven on Tuesday, July 9, 2019.

Funeral services will be Friday, July 12, at 1 p.m. at Mt. Zion Baptist Church with burial in the adjoining cemetery. Visitation will be tonight, Thursday, July 11, from 5:30-8 p.m. at Albertville Memorial Chapel. Rev. David Cofield will officiate.

She is survived by her daughters; Rejeana (Bryan) Hansard, Vicki (Jimmy) Cargile and Talese (Billy) Berry; grandchildren; Dustin (Jessica) Brooks, Kensey (James) Wheat, Maci and Will Cargile, Cooper and Cash Berry; great- grandchildren, Brooks Wheat and Nola and Van Brook; brother-in-law, Dwight (Jeri) Holcomb; sister-in-law, Millie Stevens; special nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.

Mamie was preceded in death by her husband of 65 years, William Eugene Holcomb; her son, Charles Kenny Holcomb; her parents, S. D. and Bessie Leeth Thomas; brothers, U.L. “Red” (Micky) Thomas and Gerald (Sue) Thomas.

One of Mamie’s favorite bible verses was Proverbs 15:13 “A merry heart maketh a cheerful countenance” and she lived with a merry heart. She was a loving and devoted wife, business partner, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, aunt, cousin and friend. She loved freely and was loved in return. She enjoyed giving to others and was always putting others’ needs before her own.

Her family expresses their sincere gratitude to the health care professionals who so willingly provided care and comfort for her; Dr. Evan Johnson, Kathy Vaughn, Dale Johnson, and the staffs of Serenity Place, Wills Creek Village, Amedysis Home Health, Marshall Medical South and DeKalb Regional.

In lieu of flowers, Mrs. Holcomb’s wishes were to have donations given to the Mt. Zion youth group.
