Webster Holland

March 17, 1929 — January 9, 2017

Deacon Webster Holland “Wine”, born March 17, 1929, son of the late Ernest and Martha Hayman Holland, departed this life on Monday, January 9, 2017 at Univ. of MD Shore Medical Center at Easton after a brief illness.

Deacon Holland was born in Caroline County, MD where he received his early education in the Caroline County Public School System.

In his early years, Webster was a farmer by trade, helping his father and brothers on their family farm here in Bethlehem, just down the road a piece. Deacon Holland was drafted in the Army around 1951 where he served in Fort Campbell, Kentucky.

Upon returning from the Armed Forces he met and married Helen Glendora Thomas on October 20, 1956.  From this union four children were born, Gwendolyn Darlene, Michelle Nicole (who preceded him in death), Karon Stacy and Sharon Stacy Holland.

One of Deacon Holland’s gifts was the ability to drive 18 wheelers.  It was through this passion that he provided for his family, driving for many local carriers.  After tiring from being away from his family,  during trips he secured a job at Preston Trucking Company “the 151 Line” where he worked until he officially retired from punching a 9 to 5 clock.

He served as a Deacon at Mt. Zion Pentecostal Holiness Church later moving his membership to Whole Counsel of God Ministries.  His passion for serving the Lord carried over frequently into all aspects of his life and he took daily opportunities to talk to anyone about the Lord.  He often loved to meet his brother Fred at Hardees in the mornings, laughing and talking about the goodness of God over a cup of hot steaming coffee.

He loved his family often laughing and joking with his grandchildren. He was a very caring and generous person with an infectious laugh that could light up a room.  He carried joy everywhere he went.

In addition to his parents and daughter, he was preceded in death by three brothers, Nathaniel, Leonard and Waldon Holland

Deacon Holland leaves to mourn his wife of 60 years, Glendora; three daughters, Gwendolyn Jenkins (Marvin) of Easton, MD, Karon Holland (Easton, MD) and Sharon Shelton (Sheldon) of Mesquit, TX; five granddaughters, Tiffany Jenkins, Ebony White (Richie), Monet Jenkins, Mercedes Jenkins and Zoey Dickerson; two grandsons, Marvin Webster Jenkins and Cameron Nixon; one great granddaughter, Genesis Jenkins; three brothers, Fred Holland (Elizabeth), Ray Holland (Ellen) and Leland Holland; one sister, Ophelia Pinkney; a special niece, whom he thought of as a daughter, Angela Thomas; a special couple that looked out for him and his wife in the later portion of his years, Jay and Phyllis Albright and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins and many friends.

The family wishes to take a minute to thank Deacon Percy James and his wife, Thelma for being care givers to Deacon Holland when he was at his sickest at home.
