Obituary for Mae Jean Holcomb

Mae Jean Holcomb, 85, went home to be with the Lord on Thursday, August 3, 2017. A graveside service will be held at 2:00 p.m., Saturday, August 5, at Oakwood Cemetery, 2124 S. 5th St., Waco. A time of visitation with the family will be held 6:00-7:30 p.m., Friday, August 4, at The Venue at First Woodway Baptist Church. (The Venue is located across the street from the church offices at 110 Ritchie Rd.)

Mae Jean was an executive secretary at Southwestern Bell until her retirement in 1978. Several years later, Mae Jean returned to work as the pastor's secretary at Highland Baptist Church, where she served from 1984 to 1988. In 1992, she became the receptionist at HBC and remained in that position until she "retired" a second time in 2002. Mae Jean loved celebrating holidays and birthdays with her family members. She saved all year to be able to give generously on those occasions. She delighted in seeing the joy her gifts brought to the recipients, especially her grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

Mae Jean was preceded in death by her husband, Frank N. Holcomb, in 1984.

She is survived by her sons, Stephen and his wife, Patty, of Duncanville, Texas, and Mark and his wife, Tracy, of Waco; four grandchildren, Rachel, Erin, Patrick, and Jesse; and three great-grandchildren, Zachary, Zoey, and Caleb.
