Sharry Lynn Holden was an angel on earth. She was born on July 29, 1969 to her loving parents, Lester James Holden, Sr. and Sharry Diane Holden, in Temperanceville, Virginia. She received her wings on Saturday, March 2, 2019 in the home where she was born.

Sharry was the best daughter to her parents, the best big sister to her five brothers, the best mommy ever to her three children, and the best nana to her five grandchildren. They all were her heart. She had an infectious smile, uplifting spirit, and kind soul that had a positive impact on everyone around her. Sharry was the Eastern Shore’s Sweetheart.

Sharry’s life was filled with her love for God, her family, and her work. She really loved to read! Her favorite books included The Bible, Nancy Drew, The Hardy Boys, and books by James Patterson, just to name a few. She also enjoyed doing crossword puzzles, attending the movies with friends, and shopping at Bath and Body Works with her mother.

She completed her education within the Accomack County school system. After graduating from Arcadia High School in 1987, she received her accounting clerk diploma the following year. She was employed as a contractor for the Navy at Wallops Island, as a Hazmat Technician for twenty-nine years. Additionally, she worked as a cashier at Walmart for six years. She loved both jobs very much.

In 1996, Sharry became a member of The Pentecostal Church of God of Lincoln Incorporated, in Newark, Maryland, where she accepted Jesus Christ as her Savior. She was incredibly active, faithful, and dedicated at church. Sharry was the president of the youth department, sang in various choirs, served as an usher, taught Sunday school, and was a member of the praise team. She loved working with the children at the church and was an inspiration to her congregation.

She was preceded in death by her maternal and paternal grandparents, as well as her grandson, Xander Reigh Holden.

Sharry will always be loved and in the hearts of her three children, Shawntaye Tyease of Painter, VA, Xavier Raymonte of Salisbury, MD, and Rondell Marquise of Greensboro, NC; five grandchildren, Jaylin Mekhi, Justin Tye, Jade London, Xavien James, and Xion Raé; parents, Deacon Lester James, Sr. and Sharry Diane, five brothers, Little Lester and wife, Meme and sons, JaKweil and Cordell of Massachusetts, Nicholas of California, Colin, Deon, both of Virginia, and Alex of New York; and a host of aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends.

I would like to express my sympathy and condolences at this time. Also at Isaiah 25:8, it tells us that God will wipe away the tears from all faces and he will swallow up death forever and Rev 21:3,4 tells us that sickness and death will be no more. I hope these words will help you during your loss.
