Susan Dianne (Grant) Holcomb, 77, of Clarkesville, Georgia went to be with Our Lord on Thursday, March 30, 2023.
Born January 16, 1946 she was the daughter of the late William “Deavours” & Louise Haynie Grant. Dianne was one of four children. She was raised in Habersham County and was a graduate of North Habersham High School, Class of 1964. Her tenure at North Habersham yielded her lettering in varsity basketball (4 years) being a 3-year varsity cheerleader, and being voted as Ms. Bobcat for North Habersham during her senior year. She held numerous positions and titles throughout her professional life following high school, but her most esteemed titles were “Wife, Momma, Grandma, Mema, and Great Grandma”.
Dianne was married for 57 years to her loving and surviving husband (Wayne Holcomb of Clarkesville, Georgia); together, they moved throughout the state of Georgia raising three sons and becoming grandparents as Wayne pursued a career with Georgia Power. Their journey together started out in Habersham County; it took them to Floyd, Bartow, and Fulton counties before returning them home to Habersham for retired life. Dianne was the bedrock of the entire family all along the way. Whether it be carting their sons or grandkids to school, the doctor’s office, multiple sporting events, or planning a potluck dinner for the churches the family attended, Dianne always found a way to work out the logistics and get the entire family where they needed to be on time.
She was the proudest and most loving mother of her sons; she was their greatest champion throughout the entirety of her life. She easily carried her mothering traits over into being a grandmother, and was enamored with her newest title of Great Grandma just before the Lord called her home. She had a servant’s heart and she was always the person the family and friends called when something needed praying for or resolving. It was as if Dianne had a direct hotline to God. She is now with him in heaven and awaiting the rest of us to join her.
Her surviving sons and their spouses are: Tim and Lisa Holcomb - Clarkesville, Georgia; Todd and Kathy Holcomb – Ft. Pierce, Florida; Kevin and Heather Holcomb – King George, Virginia; her grandchildren are Raleigh, Makenzie, Meredith, Kellie, Cassidi, Chris, Katie, Conner, and Jessi; her great grandson is Cal. Her surviving sister is Debbie Loggins – Demorest, Georgia.
Aside from her parents, she was preceded in death by her brothers Bobby Grant and Patrick Grant.
The family will have a private family graveside service at Oakey Mountain Baptist Church, Clarkesville, Georgia on Sunday, April 2, 2023 at 4:00 p.m. with Pastor Brion Williams officiating.
