Obituary for Elbert Henry Holland

Elbert Henry Holland was born January 10, 1942 in Springfield, Tennessee to Matthew H. Holland and Maggie L. Holland. Elbert is preceded in death by his parents, his sister Joanna M. Foreman and his wife of more than 20 years Mrs. Betty Jean Holland. Elbert departed this life on June 27, 2020 at the age of 78 years old, while at Highland Health and Rehabilitation Center in Louisville, Kentucky. Elbert confessed hope in Jesus Christ at an early age and joined Mount Carmel Baptist Church under the leadership of the late Reverend William Pipes. Elbert and his late wife Betty Jean were phenomenal cooks and worked in kitchens throughout the Louisville area. For many years, Elbert and Betty Jean were members the LaSherris social club in Louisville.

Elbert leaves to cherish his memory, twin daughters Yvette “Juice” Yelder she has (4 daughters/11 grandkids) and Yvonne “Wrink” Mills, she has (4 sons/7 grandkids).
three step-sons Jamie Gates, Michael Gates, and Charles Eddison, two sisters Dorothy “Dot” Smith (Frankfort, KY) and Hostine “Teenie” Holland (Louisville, KY) and one brother McDonald “Sonny” Holland and his wife Vicky (Louisville, KY), a host of nieces, nephews, cousins and life-long friends.

Special acknowledgement to his baby sister Hostine “Teenie” Holland for her dedication as his caregiver during his battle with illness in his later years. Teenie cared for Edward just as she would her own child and promised him that she would never leave him; and that was a promise she kept.

The Love of a Family is Life’s Greatest Blessing.
