AGE: 63 • Wilmington

Michele S. Holmes, age 63, of Wilmington, DE, passed away on Saturday, April 16, 2016 after a courageous battle with cancer.

Mickie was born in Milford and raised in North Wilmington by Ramona and the late Alfred Stoops.

The family would like to thank the amazing staff at Christiana Hospital and Seasons Hospice for the dedicated, compassionate care provided over the past several weeks.
