Beverly "Momma" Holle passed away suddenly in her Seminole, Florida home, February 22, 2023 at the age of 83.
Survived by her three children: Machael, Greg, and Chris; grandson Jerrod; granddaughters: Katelyn, Shauna, Amanda, and beloved dog, Tinkerbell.
Beverly is preceded in death by her birth parents, Marvin Boone & Patricia Sinclaire; the parents she was raised by, Jimmy & Carolyn Blacker; late husband George Holle, and granddaughter Martha Carlson.
Beverly was born on May 4th, 1939, in Champaign, Illinois. She went to Champaign Sr High. She worked as a cocktail waitress, owned a carpet installation business called the Holle House, and was a real estate paralegal at Battaglia & Ross et al.
Beverly was an outstanding devotee of the Pinellas Chapter of the Landscape Maintenance Association "LMA." Bev was editor for The Pinellas Grasshopper Newsletter serving various positions while working for her son's landscape company. She developed macular degeneration in the early 90's and went to work for blind services at Lighthouse of Pinellas teaching the blind how to use a computer.
Beverly enjoyed showing and riding horses, painting portraits, bead work, watching her grandson race, making people laugh, spending time with her family during the holidays, picnics on the beach with her family, socializing with her friends at the Buttonwood Circle Club House, and listening to her audio books. Her favorite TV shows were "I Love Lucy", "Criminal Minds", and "The Voice." Her favorite sports team was the Tampa Bay Rays. She loved talking on the phone into all hours of the night, and playing with her dog Tinkerbell.
Our hearts are broken by this unexpected loss. She was one of a kind and we will carry her memory in our hearts forever.
