Your family continues to be in our thoughts and prayers as you adjust to your new norm. Jim was well-loved and will be missed by us, as well as the rest of his classmates from the Appalachian High School Class of 1952.
"Well done thy good and faithful servant, enter into the glory of the Lord"
My mother (her maiden name was Mary Jane Shore) went to school with your dad and his sister when they were in elementary school. I wish I had more details about it, I mainly recall my mama telling us, after your dad was elected as governor, that she'd gone to school with him. I remember her talking about them all walking to school together. It really made me proud that MY mama went to school with and knew our governor! Sadly, my mama passed away 8 years ago this June 28th.
I happened to be home at lunch today and was able to watch most of your dad's service. What a wonderful, godly man of integrity - loved and respected by so many people. I teared up at your story about his promise that you'd move back to Boone after his term as governor was up, and at the singing of "It Is Well With My Soul" (this was a hymn that my mama requested at her own funeral), and at the folding/presentation of the flag (which brought back memories of my daddy's funeral and the American flag being folded/presented to my mama in April 1983 - he was a Navy veteran).
I'm sure you and your family will miss your dad tremendously - and how precious that he was reunited with his wife on their 52 Anniversary - but you know where he now resides, and praise God, we all have the promise of moving there too one day because of our Lord & Savior Jesus Christ. God bless you and comfort you as only He can.

Ginny, I think of you often and our days at Spruill Bldg. Your Mom and Dad are together again and waiting for the rest of us.
Take care, love and prayers to you and your family,
Through my cousin, Janice Byerly Whitaker, my sister Cindy and I were afforded opportunities to work as Pages with the House of Representatives during your father's term. It was a great experience and meeting your father was a great honor. May your memories keep you warm and make you smile. Dawn M Mabe High Point
Ginny, I had the wonderful opportunity to work in your Dad's office when he was Governor. He was a warm and gentle man. He knew when to work and he did an outstanding job as our Governor. Mike and I will always remember what a great friend he was as well. You are in my prayers.
Ginny, I worked in your Dad's office when he was Governor of our State. He was one of a kind and I say that with much love. He knew when to work and when to play. He was an outstanding boss. I was and am proud to say I knew him and even had the wonderful opportunity to work with him. Mike and I were so thrilled to be a part of that wonderful era. You had a wonderful dad and mom Ginny. You are in my prayers.
Prayers are sent to the family during this difficult time. 1 Thessalonians 5:11
Met him after a lecture he gave at NCSU.
He was a great inspiration.sympathies to his family
I remember Governor Holshouser with a smile when I think of his "authentic personality." He was a caring man and great statesman. He had a great sense of "right and wrong" and stood buy his beliefs. His passing is a great loss to our State. May he Rest In Peace.
We were blessed to know Governor Holshouser, a fellow Presbyterian!
Deepest sympathy to the family.................

North Carolina is a better place bacause of Jim Holshouser.
Thank You my Friend!
I knew of Jim Holsouser and saw him around Boone often during our school days. His father was a stellar and well known trial lawyer who became a judge. I visited Jim at his law office shortly before I left for law school at Chapel Hill. We briefly spoke of the possibility I might someday join him in his law practice. He was positive and very encouraging. Of course, things worked out differently, with his becoming governor and my moving to Georgia and practicing law here. I have always felt pride in knowing him a little, and have always had great respect for him. Rest in peace, Governor.
A wonderful man and an outstanding Governor. May God Bless him and comfort his family.
My condolences to Gov. Holshouser's family. May he always rest in peace with Our Lord Savior Jesus Christ. I appreciate Gov. Holshouser's pioneering effort and the historical significance he holds in the North Carolina Republican Party. I am glad I had the opportunity to meet Gov. Holshouser while on the job at Moore Co. offices. He was a very nice man.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to the family of Gov Holshouser.
We are grateful for his many contributions to N.C.
As the first Republican NC governor in the 20th century, he changed the direction of our state.
Our prayer is God will comfort you in the time of sorrow.
As the days and weeks pass, and as you return to life's routine, may you continue to feel comforted by the love and support of family and friends.
So sorry to hear of Jim's passing. Family and friends will be lifted up in much prayer in the coming days. I pray that the memories that bring tears to your eyes and pain in your heart will soon bring a smile to your lips and warmth in your heart. God Blessings to All...
Rest in peace Mr. Holshouser
Ginny, my deepest condolences to you, my brother. Marilyn texted me the news this afternoon. Holly wrote such a sweet note on Facebook. I am thinking of and praying for all of you.
I enjoyed meeting the governor in Kansas City at the GOP national convention. After introducing him to two of my daughters who were with me, he said in perfect humor, "Dallas, you must have a beautiful wife because these girls don't look anything like you." I am glad to read more of his life and background with this obituary. Bless his family and those enriched by his life.
While Mr. Jim was Governor, I was allowed to have a special meeting face to face with him in Wilmington. When he instituted a week in which the public could visit the NC prisons, I took advantage, and because of Jim's honorable interest in the citizens of this state, I obtained much at the hands of this Governor.
After Jim's time was over, I had the honor of obtaining a former Assistant attorney General of 'my special Goveror' who went to bat to defend me and by that Attorney's know how and honorable ability caused Green Springs Boys Club Inc to be allowed to function and especially to obtain a much sought after permit to build a swimming pier for the thousands of kids that have by now swam from this pier.
I write this simply because Mr. Jim, er Governor Jim was what I believed a Governor should have been. He has always had a special place in my heart, and I want everyone to know that I, an unknown possibly, really had an awful lot of love and respect for this special man. My, don't I wish we had more like him.
I am sorry for you and your family's loss. I have many found memories of you and your father at First Presbyterian Church in Raleigh.
It is with great sadness that I learned of Gov. Holshouser's passing. He was instrumental in opening my eyes to the process of democracy in our nation during his campaign for governor. I have always respected his willingness to mentor young college students.
I am very sorry to hear of Jim's passing. Fred Morrison had been keeping me apprised of his health over the past few weeks. I will never forget Jim hiring me for his law firm when I was fresh out of law school. It was a very rewarding few years practicing law with Jim until he became Governor, the with his father, Peck, before I went on the Superior Court bench, where I served for the remainder of my career. Those are years I will always cherish.
My condolences and prayers go out to the family in this time of loss.
Our sincer condolences;
and to all his
rest in peace~
May God bless you and your family in this time of sorrow.
With deepest sympathy to the family
With deepest sympathy to the Holshouser family during your time of grief...God is for you a refuge and strength, A help that is there to be found during difficult times...May God provide you with peace and comfort to endure the days ahead...(Psalm 62:8).
