Wilhelmenia Holmes, 84, passed away on May 19, 2020. She was born to the late John and Ida Young in Norfolk, Virginia on March 12, 1936.
Wihelmenia will be remembered for her loving and caring nature for others. She was very involved in her church. She cherished children and taught the Beginners class. She was a dedicated team leader for potlucks on Sabbath and a prayer warrior. She loved the Lord and blessed us often, with her beautiful voice, by singing with the church choir and by serenading us with hymns.
“Mena” as some affectionately called her, was a nanny, by profession, for many years. The families that she worked for, loved her very much. She was also a wonderful cook. She made delicious oatmeal patties and the best vegetarian meatballs. She had a fun-loving personality and was not afraid to stand up for herself. She did things with love, knowing that she was heaven bound.
Left to cherish her memory is her uncle Ernest Wilkins and a very large church family.
A gathering to celebrate her life will take place on Tuesday, June 2, at Altmeyer Funeral Home Southside Chapel (5033 Rouse Drive, VA Beach) at 11:00 am
