Jean Holmes



May 07, 2018, Jean Byrd Holmes left this world as she went home to meet her glorious Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

Jean was born and raised in Rocky Mount, N.C, where she met and married the love of her life, Daniel Oscar Holmes, Sr. After being blessed with four little smiles, (Pamela Holmes Swann, Daniel Oscar Holmes, Jr., Barbara Holmes Smith and Thomas Craig Holmes) the family set out to plant their roots in the heart of Horry County in Surfside Beach, S.C.
Jean loved living in Surfside Beach, where they lived on Lakeside Drive.

She enjoyed gardening, days spent at the beach with her family and she loved her church! She was a member of Socastee Baptist. Jean had a beautiful voice and enjoyed singing. She was a very compassionate and giving person and this showed in her day to day living, with those she came in contact with. She had a very special place in her heart for animals and her pets were a part of the family.

Jean worked many years with Maxway and Tomlinson’s in Surfside Beach.

Along with her four children Jean is survived by eight grandchildren, ten great-grandchildren and one sister, Betty Ann Byrd. She is predeceased by her loving husband; her mother, Mary Byrd; father, Franklin Byrd and one brother Richard Byrd.
