Barbara Cannon Holder, 77, went to be with her Lord and Savior Sunday, October, 30, 2022.
Born in Pickens County, a daughter of the late Ralph Cannon and the late Nancy Belle Cannon, Barbara was a graduate of Pickens High School, Southern Wesleyan College, and Clemson University where she received her Master's Degree in Education. She was a retired teacher from Hollis Academy, Greenville.
Barbara loved children, and was passionate about being an advocate for children who had no one to advocate for them. She just had a love for people, especially her family and grandchildren. Barbara will be dearly missed by all who loved and knew her.
Surviving are her son, Jeff Holder (Liza) of Sunset; her two daughters, Chris H. Wilson (Jim) of Williamston, and Anna H. Glenn (Jack) of Pendleton; a sister, Ethel Fortner of Greenville; nine grandchildren, Jonathan Holder, Jacob Holder, Lyndsey Wilson (Charlie), Caroline Tate (Camden), Claire Wilson, David Wilson, Michael Glenn, Andrew Glenn, and Laura Glenn; and one great-grandchild, Grady Tate. In addition to her parents, Barbara was predeceased by eight siblings.
A Celebration of Life will be held at 2:00 PM Thursday, November 3, 2022, on what would have been her 78th birthday, in the chapel of Robinson Funeral Home-Downtown.
You may speak to the family following the service.
In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made in honor of Barbara to The Dream Center, P.O. Box 203, Easley, SC 29641.
