I wish I could have spent more time with my grandmother and actually witness greatness.

Her legacy has produced a generation of women that set the standard of following God, standing for family, loving your country, and compassion. She had four daughters that followed her lead and carried on the belief in hope.

I speak from the Holland perspective of Betty’s life. You may know her as Betty Duncan, I knew her as Aunt Betty from her other clan.

Betty being the baby of the family she had four mentors in which she embraced the traits that made her great.

Grandma – The matriarch. Godly. Responsible, demanding, loving, caring.

Geneva – The oldest. Stoic. Sensitive. Successful. A stickler for order.

Opal – Loving. Family oriented, Godly. Full of laughter.

Martha – Smart. Funny. Godly. Again, family oriented. Though challenged with Polio from a young age, a warrior with dignity. Always with a smile.



The traits of the Holland clan, Betty was the encapsulation of those attributes. She was a beacon of hope. Full of life. Most importantly a believer. Always a smile, Always warm. Always welcoming. ALWAYS loving. Always forgiving. Non-judgmental. She displayed the best traits of her sisters and her mother.



The common thread was her relationship with God. I have full confidence she is setting around the foot of God’s throne visiting with sisters laughing and laughing and just carrying on. Glad to have made it through the turmoil and chaos we are living in today.

We could use a matriarch like grandma that could produce such good women. We have lost the Holland sister’s contribution, but live with the knowledge they set the example for years to come. Betty helped fulfill that matriarch role to the end.



I’m not sad for her, just for us for losing a great one. She deserves peace. She won the battle.

I still wish I had more time to spend with my Grandmother. She must have been one heck of a mentor.

Miss Betty......Such a great lady of faith and just a very sweet person. I loved singing in the choir with her and going to church together. I don't think there is a thing in this world she would not have done for you if you asked. I missed her when she left Olney and now I know your whole family will miss her greatly. Be encouraged that we will get to see her again some day soon. It's hard to say so long for now, but we do have this great hope and promise from Jesus and you better believe that she knew that with all her heart! Love yall, Tracy
