Hazel was born November 8, 1941 in Richards, Tx. to Harry and Annie Leona (Montgomery) Hutchins. She grew up in Wealthy and met and married the love of her life William Lewis Holder. He preceded her in death in October 1996. She was also preceded in death by her brothers and sisters. Ethel Mae, Cornelius, Tommy, Dealue (Bootsie), and Howard (Bud).

She was a caregiver and homemaker for most of her life. She cared for two siblings, Bud and Bootsie during their illnesses until the time of their deaths. She loved the simple things in life, loved deeply and was deeply loved by many. She would always help those in need and was a selfless woman.

Left behind from her passing are her four sons, Bobby Gene Holder and wife Lillian, Robert Lewis Holder and wife Victoria, Howard Lee Holder and wife Tammy, William David Holder and wife Alisha and son by choice Clinton Manning. Left to cherish her memory and those who cared for her during the time of her illness until the time of her passing are daughter Shirley Marie Ward and husband, Eddy, granddaughter Lillian (Sissy) McCuistion and Sharlet (Nubbin) Bond. She is also survived by her remaining eleven grandchildren and numerous great and great great grandchildren.

She was the foundation of the family and one of a kind set in her stubborn ways right up until the end. You never had to guess what was on her mind because she would let you know, even if you didn’t ask. Hazel will be so deeply missed.

Rest in peace Old Girl Granny. We will see you again.

Pallbearers will be Bobby, Robert, Howard and William Holder, Clinton Manning and son in love Eddy.
