Mrs. Lenora Zena Holcombe
Sunrise: March 23, 1923 - Sunset:  June 04, 2018

The family of Mrs. Lenora Zena Holcombe announces with love, gratitude and humble hearts her peaceful transition from labor to rest. 

This blessed transformation occurred at The Benjamin Healthcare Center in Boston, Mass.

Mrs. Lenora Z. Holcombe is survived by her Sons Joseph Holcombe, Jr., John Holcombe, her daughter Marlon Weewee King-Fig, her grandchildren Florence Johnson, Serdia Lenora Holcobme, John Holcobme Jr., Tombakai Holcombe, her brother Joseph Stubblefield, her sisters Grace Flowers Ricks, Elizabeth Gibson, Thelma January and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins and other extended relatives of the United States, Europe and Liberia West Africa. 

Mrs. Holcombe was predeceased in her death by her husband Joseph Holcombe Sr., two of her sons Stephen Holcombe and Phillip Holcombe, her sister Mrs. Catherine Flowers Morris and brother Mr. Hilary Dennis .

Mrs. Holcombe lived a humble life to the fullest; she left a positive impact on everyone she came across.  She was full of laughter and humors. Her smile and personality was infectious, she spoke with so much emphasis and accents in funny ways.  She loved and prayed for her family, friends and strangers.  She will forever be in our hearts and will be solely missed by all.  May her soul continue to rest in the arms of the Lord until we meet again.
