Obituary for Elnora Rebecca Holdip

Elnora Rebecca Alston was born in Warren County, N.C. on July 14, 1936 to the late Haywood and Ethel Lee Alston. She departed this life on Saturday, April 4, 2020 at the Martine Rehabilitation Center in White Plains, New York.

Elnora was educated in Warren County and graduated from the Warren County Training School in 1956.

She moved to White Plains, N.Y. where she stayed with her beloved Aunt, Mrs. Ida Mae Higgs. She was employed in the food department at White Plains hospital and ultimately became a domestic worker until retirement.

She joined Little Mount Zion Holy Church in September 1961 where she served on the Kitchen Committee and was a member of the Adult Choir. She would always make her delicious cabbage for special events at the church. She was an active member of the WCO Barbara Young Cup for 15 years where she also served as secretary. Each year she would encourage members of the church to attend and sponsor a young person at the annual luncheon.

She met and married the late Stanley Holdip on March 25, 1961. To this union was born one son, Stanley Alphonso Holdip. She supported her husband, Stanley, as he formed a small office cleaning company.

Sister Holdip attended church regularly until her health began to fail. She was a jovial person and will be missed by everyone who knew her.

She was preceded in death by her husband, Stanley, father and mother, Haywood and Ethel Lee Alston; five brothers, Ezell, Lenton, Willie Anthony, Nathaniel and Darnell Alston; three sisters, Helen Mae Hunter, Emma Marie Rowlett and Veonie Brooks.
