Goldia Holleman Tyler’s journey with Alzheimer’s ended on Wednesday, Nov. 29, 2023 after battling the debilitating disease for many years. It robbed her of cherished memories, independence, and the ability to function without caregiver assistance. Through it all, she maintained a radiant smile that exuded obvious love for her family.

After retiring from a career in the furniture industry Goldia was most content in spending time at home. She was an avid reader and enjoyed gardening in her flowerbeds.

Goldia was born Sept. 20, 1937 in Yadkin County, N.C., daughter of the late Willie Clarence Holleman and Ollie (Brannon) Holleman. She was also preceded in death by: her brother, Vernon Holleman; and 3 sisters, Gerlene McGee, Mary Bowman and Merlie Reavis.

She leaves behind 4 devoted children: Teresa Ward (Craig), Renee Plummer (Gary), Vernon Tyler and Chris Tyler; a sister-in-law, Judy Holleman; 2 brothers-in-law, Gray Bowman and Jerry Reavis; and a host of grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

On Sunday, Dec. 3, a visitation and funeral service was held at Davie Funeral Service of Mocksville, officiated by Pastor Darrell Cox.  Following the service and visitation, the family held a private graveside service.

In loving memory of Goldia, please consider a donation to the American Alzheimer’s Association.

The family wishes to extend heartfelt appreciation to the staff of Mocksville Senior Living & Mountain Valley Hospice for their care and to Pastor Darrell Cox for the faithful weekly visits & prayer he provided.
