Angela (Judy) RoseShirley-Holcomb-Law

Angela (Judy) Rose Shirley-Holcomb-Law died at the age of 86 on June 10, 2023. She was born April 4, 1937 in Philadelphia, PA. She spent the beginning of her life there until she met and moved to Texas with her late husband, Harvey Holcomb. Here they raised 3 children, whom she loved and cherished until her last day. She gave everything she had to provide the best life she could for them.
She later went on to marry her second husband, John Law, the love of her life. They spent their years together in the Catholic Church spreading the word and love of God while spoiling and loving their grandkids and pets. He passed before her, but she is now in Heaven, reunited with her loving husband.
Judy was the sweetest woman in the world, the best God-loving wife, mother, aunt, friend, and most importantly Mawmaw. She had no greater joy than watching her grandchildren and great-grandchildren grow. She would tell of all of their successes and memories to anyone who would listen. There was no greater supporter than Mawmaw.
She was a brilliant woman who spent her time giving. Her most proud years of work are when she was working in low-income apartment management and worked into her 80s. She loved numbers and doing all the math that most people would rather not deal with, but more so, she loved helping those in need have a place to call home.
She once had a dream where she showed up to the pearly gates greeted by all of her beloved animals who passed before her and I have faith that that’s exactly how she was greeted the day she left this Earth for Heaven.
She is preceded in death by spouses John Law and Harvey Holcomb, parents Joseph and Angela Shirley, grandson Joey Carroll, sister Joan “Sis” Searcy, brother Dan “Danny” Shirley and brother-in-law Don Leist.
She is survived in death by her 3 children; Harvey Holcomb Jr., Cindy Holcomb Carroll and Eric Holcomb; her 5 grandchildren; Beau (Traci) Carroll, Dawn (Joshua) Walker, Whitney (Jayson) Williams, Cheyenne (Joe) Holcomb and Erica (Welden) Rappmund; her 9 great-grandchildren; Paige Walker, Preslie Walker, McKenna Williams, Ian Walker, Heston Holcomb, Kolton Schroat, Kynzli and Tenley Carroll, and Katie Rappmund; siblings; Phina Leist, Joe “Jr” (Dotty) Shirley, sister-in-law Gail Shirley,and brother-in-law Bill Searcy.
A rosary and service is planned for Saturday, July 15, 2023 at 9:30am at St. Joseph’s Catholic Church, 108 S Washington Dr, Devine, TX 78016 with a private burial to follow.
