The storm is almost gone, she saw Jesus peeping through the clouds; now the storm is gone. It came to an end for Rosie Lee Kellam Holloman on November 13, 2020. She fought a good fight, but lost the battle, because the battle belonged to God and she is now resting with Him.

Rosie was the third child born to the late Smallwood Kellam, Sr. and Maggie Mapp Kellam on January 25, 1931 in Nandua, Virginia. She was educated in the public schools of Accomack County and was a proud graduate of Mary N. Smith High School, class of 1950.

In 1944, she joined Shiloh Baptist Church, where she remained a faithful member until her health prevented her from attending. Rosie was a member of the choir, Missionary Society, and the Willing Workers, where she served as the committee president for many years. Her favorite gospel song was No Tears in Glory.

Rosie was married to the late Horace Elwood Holloman and their union was blessed with one son, Horace Elight Holloman. She also helped to raise her nephew, Clayton Kellam and her niece, Shimeka Duffy Robinson, from the age of two. Her family was her priority and she made sure she provided for them. Rosie held many occupations throughout her life to include: a cook, nurse’s aide, and a factory worker. She kept the faith until the end and will be missed by all who knew and loved her.

In addition to her parents and husband, Rosie was preceded in death by her son, sister, and six brothers.

She leaves to carry on her legacy and love for God: two brothers, John Kellam of Baltimore, MD and Garry Horsey of Boston, VA; eight nieces; eleven nephews; two goddaughters; one sister-in-law; special friends, Belinda Butler, Lucinda Riley, Jane Matthews, and Sarah Belle Wise; special nieces, Carsandra “Ann” Walker; Mary N. Smith class of 1950; and a host of other relatives and friends.

My thoughts and prayers go out to Miss Rosie's family. I used to visit her house very often to pick up my late best friend Clayton. She was always very kind and greeted me with a smile. Rest in Peace

Aunt Rosie Lee was the beloved wife of our Uncle Horace Holloman and mother of our cousin Horace Elite Holloman. We remember the many family visits and gatherings between the Holloman, Duncan and Ames family members throughout the years in Pungoteague, Boston, Keller, Melfa and Painter, Virginia. Aunt Rosie Lee was a quiet spirit who believed in God and attended church on a regular basis. Our heartfelt sympathy goes out to family members and friends who mourn her loss. May God Rest Her Soul.

Love, Peace and Blessings,
Respectfully Submitted on Behalf of Lucille E. Duncan Smith ( Niece of Horace Holloman) and Great Uncle of:
Cynthia A. Jordan (Everett Jordan) - Randallstown, Md.
Wiliam D. Smith Jr. (Dorothy Smith) - Laurel, Md.
Rogers O. Smith (Cheryl Smith) - Baltimore, Md.
LaVern W. Baty (Dan Baty) - Laurel, Md.
