Margaret Holt, a devoted mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother and a great-great grandmother, peacefully passed away on April 26, 2024, leaving behind a tapestry of memories woven with resilience and determination.

Born on December 13, 1944, to John and Juil (Flener) Massey, Margaret was raised alongside her siblings, on Massey Hill, John, Mary, George, Kenneth, Steve, Jake, Joe, and her surviving brother, Nick Massey of Somerset, KY. On March 31, 1965, Margaret married Douglas Holt, embarking on a journey marked by shared joys and challenges until his passing, as well as those of her parents and siblings.

Margaret was survived by her three daughters: Patricia (James) Ard of Jeffersonville, IN, Janie (Bill) Denham of Somerset, KY, and Jennifer (Jim) Hess of Berea, KY, whom she cared for deeply. Her legacy extends to her seven grandchildren: Jaret (Emily) Ard, Billy (Sarah) Denham Jr., Ashley (Daniel) Cooley, Jonathan Denham, Shane (Nikki) Denham, Kaleigh Hess, and Zachary Hess. She also leaves behind numerous great-grandchildren, including Paige Haeberlin, Seth Ard, Eli Cooley, Cohen Cooley, Summer Cooley, Mallorie (Austin) Walker, Macie Denham, Maddie Jo Denham, Grant Denham, Andrew Denham, Aubree Denham, Landree Denham, Bodhi Denham, Hudson Denham, Tyson Denham, and great-great-grandchildren Ezra Baker, Wyatt Walker, and Weston Walker.

Margaret found solace in her faith, being a member of Harmony Fellowship. Her commitment to her beliefs was a guiding light through life’s trials. Despite her reserved nature, she found camaraderie during her residency at Somerset Nursing Home, where she left an indelible mark.

Margaret’s hands were skilled in quilting and sewing, hobbies through which she expressed her inner creativity. Each stitch bore witness to her meticulous craftsmanship and unwavering dedication to her craft.

Margaret Holt’s departure leaves a void in the hearts of those who knew her, but her legacy of resilience will continue to inspire generations to come. May she rest in peace, reunited with loved ones who preceded her, until the dawn of a new reunion.

Visitation will be held on Monday, April 29, 2024 from 5-8pm in the Chapel of the Southern Oaks Funeral Home. Funeral service will be held on Tuesday, April 30, 2024 at 11am with Bro.
