Susan Elaine Holmes

Susan Elaine Holmes, 65, of Little Rock, AR went to be with her Savior, on November 15, 2023 after a long illness.

Susan was born in Memphis, TN on August 17, 1958. She was the daughter of the late William Arlan Simpson and the late Mary Juanita Simpson (Brasfield). She leaves behind to cherish her memory her loving husband, Ken Holmes of Little Rock; her children: Michael Holmes and his wife Melanie of North Little Rock; and Kelly Holmes of Little Rock; her grandsons: Bennett and Gabe; and her brother: Bill Simpson of Memphis, TN. Susan loved her children. There was nothing she would not do for them to give them opportunities in life.

There were few things Susan loved more than travelling, baseball, and the outdoors.  She was a season ticket holder for the Arkansas Traveler’s for 36 years, a would often travel with her ”baseball family” to watch the team play in other cities.  When she wasn’t attending baseball games, she could be found camping with her family at state and national parks, enjoying God’s beauty where ever she was.

Susan was a long-time member of Markham Street Baptist Church, where she served in the children’s and women’s ministries.

Susan brought joy to everyone who had the privilege of knowing her. Her kindness and loving spirit will live on in the hearts who knew her.
