Helen Camille Crenshaw-Holt transitioned into heaven peacefully early the morning of March 25th. Aged 55, She was the adopted daughter of beloved Mary Carmegnani-Crenshaw and beloved Joseph W. Crenshaw of Tallahassee, Florida who preceded her into heaven. She is survived by her husband Stephen Wallace Holt and brother William Donald Crenshaw.
Helen's spirit transcended time and space - in Latin, "suis generis" (one of a kind); she touched and loved people everywhere she went changing their lives forever. Unique in every way, a beautiful radiant aura surrounded her. She gave unconditional love to all - plants, animals and people. Helen's passions were all God's creatures, laughter and true meaningful friendships.
In the words of the song written for her wedding day, "She gives to everyone what they need and so much more, Rubies and Diamonds all across the floor. Every creature and little one is sure to find a home. When they look into., when they look into., my baby's eyes." - Red Priest (aka Stephen Wallace Holt).
There is now a new star in the sky, never to be forgotten. Blessed are those who knew her. Long live Ruby Diamond and Red Priest!
