Wilma Holden Holden of Leland, NC, died on January 3, 2012 at The Lower Cape Fear Hospice & LifeCareCenter after a very brief battle with brain cancer.

She was born on April 24, 1942, to parents Woodie and Edgar Holden (both deceased) in Supply, NC, where she grew up and went to school. After working twelve years at Wendell Elementary, she spent the next two decades enriching lives at New Hanover Medical Group working in the front office. There she spread her gospel of goodwill to each and every face that ventured in the door. Her presence in the community there is legendary.

Wilma wished to be remembered as the mother of Becky (deceased) and Laura Gray, the wife of Don Holden, the sister of Mary Lou Dance & the sister-in-law Elmer Dance, the mother of Mark Holden and the mother-in-law Sharon Holden, the grandmother of Megan Chamblee, Zachary and Miles Holden, the aunt of Cathy Harmon and Jim Dance (deceased).

Services conducted by the Reverend V. C. Potter and Rabbi George Holland at Wrightsboro Baptist Church, 2736 Castle Hayne Road, Wilmington, NC 28401 Saturday, January 7, 2012, at 3:00 PM.

In lieu of flowers or gifts, Wilma wished that donations be made to The Lower Cape Fear Hospice, at 1414 Physicians Drive, Wilmington, NC, 28401.
