Obituary for Marjorie Lynn Holmes (Matson)

Marjorie (Midge) Holmes, 79, a longtime resident of Ludington, MI and most recently residing in Houston, TX, died Thursday, June 20, 2019 at MD Anderson Cancer Center where she valiantly fought a ten month battle against leukemia.
Midge was born August 14, 1939 in Ludington, MI where she graduated in Ludington High School’s class of 1957. She was married in 1958 to her high school sweetheart, Tom Holmes. They had three children, Karin Marie, Kelly Lynn and Kevin Thomas.
Midge worked in various bookkeeping and secretarial positions during her lifetime. She loved to read, knit, play bridge, watch baseball and play the piano. A highlight of her life was playing piano for the high school choir. She enjoyed following the Detroit Tigers until she moved to Houston where she was fast becoming an Astros Fan.
She was preceded in death by her devoted husband Tom, her parents Robert and Edith Matson, in-laws Harold and Doris Holmes, her brother Robert C. (Bud) Matson, her sister Linda Branyan Christensen and brother-in-law Ralph Branyan.
She is survived by her children Karin (Debra) Holmes, Kelly Rivera and Kevin Holmes, her sister Barbara (Jim ) Husted, sister-in-law Cathy Matson, brother-in-law Doug Christensen, grandchildren Adam and Christopher Rivera, 5 grand pets and several cousins, nieces and nephews.
Midge was a lifelong member of Emanuel Lutheran Church in Ludington, MI. She was also a member of the Order of the Eastern Stars.
A memorial in Midge’s honor will be held at a future date in Ludington, Mi. Memorial gifts may be made to The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, 1515 Holcombe Blvd., Houston, TX 77030.

I will greatly miss you Mama Holmes. Though not my real mom, you were like my mom for many years knowing you and your family, your husband Tom, Kevin, Kelly and Karin. I will cherish all the memories, all the card games, going out to your favorite restaurants, movies watched and laughter too. Deep in the heart of Texas I'm saddened, but so very thankful and so grateful to have known you.
