Margaret Elizabeth Holcombe, 88, of Wytheville, VA, went to be with her Lord on Friday, September 12, 2014.
She was greatly beloved and will be greatly missed by many. Her life was a powerful testimony to the redeeming love of God. She came to Christ at age 13 and spent her life loving her Savior and sharing His love with people of all backgrounds. She and her husband pastored churches from California to Maryland and Michigan to Georgia. Her genuine, heartfelt devotion to God was evident in her countless selfless acts of helping others, her patient and valiant endurance of hardship with a joyful attitude and her passionate heart for worship. To hear her sing or pray was to witness a person whose passion, sincerity and intimacy with her Lord was unquestionable.
She was preceded in death by her husband, Rev. Paul A. Holcombe, Sr., and is survived by her son, Paul A. Holcombe, Jr., and his wife, Marty of Sugar Grove, VA; her daughter, Sandra Copper, and her husband, Mark of Jena, GER; four grandchildren, Paul A. Holcombe, III, and his wife, Deanne of Clayton, NC, Chantal Garriss, and her husband, Tray of Youngsville, NC, Sandrine Doyle, and her husband, Jeff of Wake Forest, NC, and Christine Powel, and her husband, Tally of Youngsville, NC; ten great grandchildren; and two sisters, Lori Sisk, and her husband, Herbert, and Clemiegene Oliver of Greenville, SC.
