jehre holtzclaw

 

           Mrs. Jehre Holtzclaw, age 73, of Union County, passed over peacefully Monday evening, May 7, 2012, at the Union County Nursing Home, Blairsville, where she had been receiving professional, kind and compassionate care over the past 10 month. She was born May 18, 1938, in Cleveland, OH, and lived in S. Amherst, OH, West Bloomfield, MI, and the Prescott, AZ, area, and over the past year was a resident of Union County and Blairsville, GA.

           Jehre was the daughter of the late James Edward and Dorothy Kovarbasic Pappas. She is survived by her husband, Travis Holtzclaw, Union County, GA, her loving children: daughter, Tia Rebholz (Littleton, CO), and son, Gino Graziano (Altadena, CA); two grandchildren, Brittany and Ryder, one great-grandson, Rilan (CO); and sister, Patricia Gorr (S. Amherst, OH).

           A graduate of Kent State University, Kent, OH, Jehre taught in high school and was an accountant for the family business. In mid-life, she completed graduate studies at the School of Humanistic Studies (Psychology), Detroit, MI, and was certified, and conducted classes in the Silva Mind Development program in Michigan and Arizona. She lovingly performed her healing, professional counseling and care for 10 years in Prescott, AZ, successfully accepting many clients with the most challenging mental and behavioral disorders/diagnoses.

           She was a member of the Unity Church and Church of Religious Science in Prescott, and a long-time student of A Course In Miracles in Michigan and Arizona.

           Among her greatest passions were hiking the Grand Canyon (before and after moving to Arizona) and the game of golf where she excelled both in Michigan and Arizona, becoming the 1995 ladies champion at her home course, The Prescott Country Club. She never rode in a cart; she always walked.

           Jehre will be dearly missed by her family and many friends, including nursing home staff and residents for whom she always had a smile and a pat while in Blairsville and The Good Samaritan Nursing Home, Prescott Valley, AZ. Memorial services are being planned for a later date.

           While we mourn for our mate, mother, sister and friend who will always be alive in our memories, we are thankful that she lived and that we were the ones chosen to be among those who were her family and friends.
