Obituary of Margaret Ann Holder Brown

Shreveport: Margaret Ann Holder Brown passed away, Thursday, October 1, 2020.  “Ann” Brown was born December 3, 1940, in Shreveport, LA.  She was born to Hartwell Eugene and Pauline Marie Nissen Holder.

Those left to cherish her memory are her children, Alvin Douglas “Doug” Brown, Jr. and wife, Linda of DeRidder, LA; Vickie Brown Finch and husband, J.P. of DeBerry, TX, her grandchildren, Steven Guy Bogard, II and wife, Terra of Benton, LA; Amber Finch Rigsby and husband, Jef of Marshall, TX; James Derek Finch of Shreveport, LA; and Holland Dustin Harrison and wife, Jessica of Malvern, AR,  5 great-grandchildren, and her brother, Hartwell Eugene “Gene” Holder, Jr. and his wife Patsy, nephews Michael Eugene Holder and Kenneth Gordon Holder and wife, Kim, and one great nephew.

“Ann” was a homemaker, who dedicated her life to raising her children and doting on her grandchildren.  She was the mama who was always there for her family, through thick and thin.  She was an amazing cook and was lovingly known as the “Cookie Monster”.  Ann loved her Dallas Cowboys, and loved her church, Faith Lutheran.  There is nothing Ann loved more than to be surrounded by her family, for every holiday, birthday, anniversary and anything she could gather us together for in-between.  She will be dearly missed.
