My dear Holden family,
I just counted...Betty was my sister-in-law for 43 years, and she was really more than a sister-in-law to me ~ she was a confidante and a very dear friend. I have so many wonderful memories of vacations, celebrations and holidays with the three Holden brothers and their wives (Betty, Doris and myself) that I will treasure forever!
I can picture Betty now, with a smile on her face. And if there is food in heaven, you

To My Sister Betty:
Betty, you always said "Patsy, I raised you"! And you did! I was your shadow growing up. Your statement to me every time we talked on the phone was "Count your blessings Patsy". But my big blessing was you Betty! Love, your little sis, Pat

Jacky, Timmy, Kathy, Michael, and families,
My heart goes out to you on the loss of such a lovely lady! She always made us feel welcomed when we went to Annapolis to see her and Uncle Jack. She had a great sense of humor, too, which I suspect she developed in self-defense with such a funny family! Miss you, cousins! Keep in touch and keep the...Faith Beall xxxx

I am Pat Holden's sister. I didnt know Betty well but was blessed to meet her on a few occasions over the years. I mainly have memories of Pat and Bob's stories of Betty (and the brothers and in laws) and they were tales full of smiles and laughter. I know she will be greatly missed and I also know she awaits a happy reunion with you all! Jesus is the way. My sincere condolences to and prayers for you all.

Kathleen, John, Tim, Michael, Tom, Mary, Christine, Anne, Patricia, Thomas John, and Claire. This is sent with love to you all, and with cherished memories of a beautiful woman.
Mrs. Betty Holden always was gracious and kind in every interaction we had. Truly she is one of the most gracious women I ever had the privilege to know, living out “Love is patient, love is kind; it is not self-seeking; it always perseveres.” (I Corinthian 13) As I reflect on what

Dear Family of Betty,
We have been so blessed to have Betty in our lives all these years!
Betty was always very special to me and many others! She had a way of making us feel loved! I always felt a wonderful connection with Betty. i know it's because she loves the Lord, and lived that love out each day!
I'm so glad my mom Rosemary(Rosie,Betty's sister), myself, brother and his wife had a chance to be with her in November

There's room for you!
Even if she was in the process of serving dinner, she would stop and say, “There’s room for you”! These few words are representative of the love, kindness and generosity of my Aunt Betty. There was always “room for you”. In the bible is a verse from Proverbs, “Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price is far above rubies”, everyone who knew her, knew that she was a beautiful person, far above the price of rubies.
I have been blessed because of her.-Love Dave
