Obituary for GERTRUDE ELIZABETH HOLLAND

Gertrude Elizabeth, daughter of the late Daniel Linwood Johnson, Sr. and Inez Goff Johnson, was born March 24, 1941 in Lusby, Maryland – one of fourteen children. Her education was completed at W. Sampson Brooks High School in Prince Frederick, MD.

In June of 1963, Gertrude was united in Holy matrimony to John Calvert Holland. During their 50 year marriage they welcomed five children, and six grandchildren. Gertrude had a heart that reflected God’s amazing love. She loved her family unconditionally, giving her children wings to fly and love to soar.

Prior to her husband’s death, Gertrude enjoyed taking spur-of-the-moment road trips with John; visiting family and friends; and trying new restaurants, but always going back to their old favorites. Some of her other favorite things to do included watching her children continue to grow and always talking about them to others; playing with her grandchildren; chatting with her siblings and friends; gardening; watching westerns; listening to gospel; preparing church dinners with her sister, Elam; and chatting daily with her dear friend Phyllis Reid. In her younger days, she enjoyed the many shopping trips with her dear friend Rose Hurley. Aside from her travel adventures with John, her many trips to the grocery store, and her time in church; she spent time relaxing at home.

By God’s grace and mercy, Gertrude came to know the Lord at an early age and dedicated her life to Christ. She was a member of Zion Hill Church of God in Christ in Lusby, Maryland under the leadership of the late Elder Mick Wright and the late Elder Leroy E. Berry, respectively. She remained a faithful member until her passing. Gertrude served God by serving others. On April 5th, 2017 while at home with her family, she entered into eternal rest.

Preceding her in death are: her beloved husband, John; father, Daniel; mother, Inez; seven brothers, William Josephus, Henry Alfred, Philip, Daniel Linwood Jr., James Edward, Robert (Cutty), and Charles (Peanut); four sisters, Anna Jones, Cleo Goff Russell, Elam Campbell, and Mary Ellen Mackall; and her granddaughter Haley Alexandra.

Gertrude filled many lives with joy and touched our hearts with love. She leaves to cherish loving memories: her five children, Caroline (Kelvin); John, Jr. (Kellie); Trudy (Chauncey); Darrin (Karen); and Donna; five grandchildren, Marcus, Jonathan Alexander, Terrence, Cassaundra, and Darrin Jr.; one sister Hester Irene Swales; and one brother Clifton (Diane); and a host of nieces, nephews, in-laws, relatives and friends.
