Obituary for Bernice L. Holman

Bernice L. Holman, 96, of Fostoria, was called to God's heavenly home to join her husband Franklin "Hank" Holman at 6:30 p.m. on Thursday July 18, 2019 at Good Shepherd Home in Fostoria.

She was born on February 9, 1923 in Perry County, Indiana to the late William Edgar and Mary Ellen (Peter) Cassidy. She married Franklin F. "Hank" Holman on October 5, 1946 at St. Wendelin Catholic Church and he preceded her in death on June 27, 2009.
Surviving are six children, Larry (Sharon) Holman, Fostoria, Charlene (the late Mark) Popenberg, Fostoria, Lynn (Wayne) Traxler, Bascom, Gary "Hunky" (Sheryl) Holman, Fostoria, Cindy (Greg) O'Millian, Alvada and Brenda (Donald) Kuhn, New Riegel; 13 grandchildren; 22 great-grandchildren; three sisters, Rosalie Holman (the late Eugene), Irene Holman (the late Donald), and Marjorie Cassidy, all of Fostoria; 2 sisters-in-law, Arlene Holman, Fostoria, and Catherine Cassidy, Fostoria.

She was preceded in death by a son, Kevin Holman (1959), three grandchildren, Greg Holman (1977), Jason Holman (1998) and Kimberly Popenberg (2006); four brothers, Mathias, Norbert, Omer and James Cassidy and a sister, Connie Steinmetz.
Bernice was a homemaker and faithful member of St. Wendelin Catholic Church, Fostoria. When she married Hank she became a fulltime dairy farmer's wife and mother of seven children. She loved playing euchre and cooking for anyone that walked through the door at meal time and could produce a meal in just a few minutes’ notice. Bernice always had a huge garden to supply her family and did lots of canning. She was also a very religious woman who prayed daily for her children, grandchildren, and any other person that she felt needed some spiritual guidance. Bernice will be remembered as a very strong willed, faithful, independent and generous person.

Mass of Christian Burial will be 10:30 am Monday at St. Wendelin Catholic Church, Rev. Todd Dominique, presiding with burial following in the Parish Cemetery. A funeral lunch and gathering will then be held in St. Wendelin Parish Hall.
