Our beautiful Mother and Memaw, Patricia E. "Glory" Hoelzeman, 79 of Conway, met her precious Lord and Savior Jesus Christ face to face on February 25, 2021. She celebrated her 80th birthday one day early with Jesus and her loved ones in Heaven. Pat was born on February 26, 1941 to Frank and Margie (Fleming) Nahlen in Denver, Colorado and became an Arkansas citizen when her family moved to Conway on her 3rd birthday. Pat was preceded in death by her parents; and sisters Frances Balmain and Barbara Morris. She lovingly dedicated her time to raising her 8 children and teaching them about Jesus. Left to cherish her memory are her children: Johnny (Staci) Hoelzeman; Donna Hoelzeman; Ed (Tamara) Hoelzeman; Debbie (Marc) Brigham; Dianne (Dennis) Holloway; Linda (Tim) Kordsmeier; Robbie "RJ" (Kim) Hoelzeman; Sheila (Ken) Hogan; 26 grandchildren, 9 great grandchildren, and her sister Sylvia Heffington.
Pat was a lifelong member of St. Joseph Catholic Church in Conway. She served her Lord well by participating or leading in several ministries including Women's Aglow Fellowship; Life in the Spirit seminars; and was on the AR Catholic Charismatic Conference Planning Team for several years. With the leading of the Holy Spirit, she helped start a Charismatic Prayer group at St. Joseph Church and later helped start a weekly "New Life" prayer meeting which began on 05/14/2004 and which is still meeting to this day.
