Gwynn Mae Holman, age 57, of Welda, Kansas, passed away on Thursday, September 6, 2018, at her home.
She was born on August 9, 1961, in Chanute, Kansas, the daughter of Albert and Aletha (McGinnis) Chandler.
Gwynn married Les Holman on September 10, 1994 in Chanute, Kansas. This union was blessed with two children.
Gwynn spent her early career at HBD Industries manufacturing airplane parts in Chanute, Kansas for 15 years. Once her children were born, she decided to become a stay-at-home mother to raise them. For the past 11 years, she had been working at RLC in the Anderson County Hospital.
She enjoyed studying her bible, watching romantic movies, playing the lottery, and most of all, spending time with her family. Gwynn loved supporting her kids by watching them play sports and perform music. She also loved to travel. Most recently, she visited Hawaii, Colorado, and South Padre. Even in her sickness, she made sure her family was having fun on vacation.
Gwynn was a very loving mother and wife. Professionally and at home with her family, she was the ultimate caretaker. She was always the happiest taking care of everyone around her.
She will be deeply missed.
