Helen Nadine Faulkner Holman, 89 of Paris, joined her Heavenly Father on February 1, 2021.
Funeral services have been set for Friday, 12 o’clock noon at Fry-Gibbs Funeral Home. Interment will follow at Evergreen Cemetery. The family will receive friends one hour prior to the service time at the funeral home.
She was born on January 30, 1932 in Dunbar, Oklahoma to George W. Faulkner and Mary Viola Faulkner. Nadine attended school in Grant, Oklahoma but moved to Paris where she graduated from high school. Although she spent much of her life in Paris, part of her life was spent in Nacogdoches where she worked for Stephen F. Austin State University in the University Police Department and Ground-Transportation.
Nadine was an excellent seamstress and her children and grandchildren benefited from that talent. It was important to her that she support her children by being a Girl Scout Leader, cheering from the sidelines at baseball games, or running from school to school to see their events. Nadine loved to sing and was a member of the Immanuel Baptist Church choir here in Paris for many years. She still remembered the words to most of the old hymns. She loved the Lord and tried to instill that in her children. Her legacy to her family is her love of music and her love for the Lord. She will be greatly missed.
She is survived by her eldest sister, Nora Edgar of Ohio; her children, Helen Robinson and husband Tim of Rowlett, Ken Holman and wife Diane of Paris, Susan Chandler and husband David of Nacogdoches, jan Graves and husband Gordon of Nacogdoches, Larry Holman and wife Debbie of Paris, Bob Holman and wife Becky of Paris, Gina Beggs and husband Bill of Hawkins, Lynn Griffin and fiancé Ronny Michael of Paris; many grandchildren, great-grandchildren, and great-great-grandchildren; as well as numerous nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by Roger Holman; and seven of her siblings.
