Clarice LaShay Holland was born on May 6, 1975 to her loving mother Maggie Holland of Paterson, NJ, and the late Jerry Cox. Clarice was employed for many years at the Barney Day Care Center. She graduated from Paterson Catholic High School, and continued her education at Dover Business College and Montclair State University. "Reese," as we love to call her, enjoyed a good laugh. She loved sports, especially basketball and football. Any time the Knicks or the Giants were playing, you best believe "Reese" was watching. Reese was also known for her loving smile, those deep dimples and chinky eyes. She cherished her family times together but none had heart like her baby boys who she kept sharp all the time. She leaves to cherish fond memories: her loving sons, Tyrese and Gregory, III of Paterson, NJ; her loving mother, Maggie L. Holland; stepfather, Gregory Kelly; twin sisters, Tiffany and Brittany Kelly of Paterson, NJ; her maternal grandmother, Maggie Mae Holland; her loving cousin/sister, Suzon Johnson (Timothy) of Bridgeport, CT; her cousin/brother, Anthony "Rash"" Holland of Bronx, NY; her devoted and special aunt, Hettie (Herman) Benjamin of Clifton, NJ; her devoted and special uncle, Amen A. El aka Uncle Bunky of Wallington, NJ. She aslso leaves her cherished and best friend Edwina of Hampton, VA, and a devoted friend Gregory Brown of Paterson, NJ; and a host of aunts and uncles whom she loved dearly, cousins, other relatives friends and neighbors.
