Connie Joyce Holland


1945 - 2013 Obituary Condolences
Connie Joyce Holland (Nanny) passed away Friday, June 14, 2013, at her home surrounded by her loving family. She was born April 18, 1945, in Roswell to Annette Paul and Johnnie May.
She is survived by her husband of 50 years, Butch Holland; children Donald Holland (Angie Salido), Joy and Bill Victory, Gary Holland (Mark Proctor), daughter in-law Kathy Torres and John Lesperance ( Mark Healy); grandchildren Krysten and Cody Hill, Joseph Ramos-Campanelli, Brandi and Dusty Wright, Rylie Holland, Austin Victory (Dakota Turner) and Jason Victory; great-grandchildren Dylan and Haylee Hill, Landon and Brody Wright and Cayden Victory (due in August); sister Joan May; brother Johnny May (Pam Miller); and numerous special aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews and in-laws.
A special thanks to Krysten Hill, registered nurse (granddaughter) for all her love and devotion in taking care of her Nanny, and all her children and grandchildren for being there for her. Thanks to her loving niece Laura and her husband, Ron Summerow, for their tireless efforts to help their Aunt Connie and Uncle Butch, as well as many other extended family members and friends who loved her dearly.
Connie was preceded in death by her parents and in-laws, as well as many other loving family members.
Connie attended schools in Carlsbad and Alamogordo, graduating from Carlsbad High School in 1963. After graduation, she returned to Alamogordo, which she often referred to as "God's country." She married Butch Holland, of Cloudcroft, and together they had three wonderful children. Connie and Butch "literally" built their home in Alamogordo, where they resided for 50 years.
During her lifetime, Connie worked at the Chinese Dragon as a supervisor for many years before opening her own restaurant (Holland's Lamplighter) and in 1982, CandB Enterprises, a mobile home business providing housing for many people.
Connie was a visionary that no job was too big or too small and she never gave up. She was a hardworking, loving, caring and compassionate individual who was willing to help anyone and give them the "shirt off her back." Her favorite holiday was Christmas, which was mandatory for all family members (immediate and extended) to be at their home in Alamogordo every year.
Connie had a "go with the flow" attitude and will truly be missed by all.
A public viewing will be held at the Alamogordo Funeral Home from 2-7 p.m. Friday, June 21, 2013, with the funeral service being held at 10 a.m. Saturday, June 22, 2013.
Flowers may be delivered to the Alamogordo Funeral Home, or donations may be made to St. Jude's Children's Research Hospital or the in her name.
Special thanks to all of the staff at Gerald Champion Regional Medical Center and Alamogordo Home Health Care and Hospice.
