She was predeceased by her husband William L. Holford.
Her legacy was great, she has two children survived by her, William L. Holford Jr. from Spokane Wash., and Dionne E. Holford-Pray from Dallas.
She is also survived by her sister Vilma Johnson ne Lopez from Houston and her brother Robert Lopez from Laredo as well as many cousins, nieces and nephews.
No matter where she went she left her mark.
This past year she was responsible for renovating the Historical Post Oak School House as a community center.
Her last position during her career was as Case Manager for the Department of Mental Health and Mental Retardation for the State of Texas, she made great strides to help her patients become independent. She established Habitat for Humanities in Johnson City. Over the years she established the Symphony and Opera Guild in Olympia, Wash., and the "Music in the Park” program in the late 1970’s that is still operating today. Fortunately she lived life to the fullest up until the day she died, she taught line dancing, choreographed and brought many new dances to her classes in Fredericksburg, Kerrville and Marble Falls over the last several years.
She was greatly loved and appreciated by all who knew her.
In July 2013 there will be a celebration of her life to be announced soon.
